TVExample - Overview

=========================================

First it uses JiBX [1] to generate Java classes and an XML databinding from
an XML Schema that describes XML documents containing TV programme metadata.
Then it uses Restlet [2] and the Restlet JiBX extension [3] to create a server 
with a REST interface to these documents. It unit tests the server uses JUnit 
and Mockito [4]. It performs integration tests using the Maven Jetty plugin 
[5] and the Restlet ServerServlet extention [6].

Unfortunately, during development problems were encountered using the Restlet
ClientResource class to post JiBX data to the server. The problems were
identified using TcpMon [7] and a description of the problem and a
temporary solution are in ClientProgrammeProxy.java

REST INTERFACE EXAMPLES

=========================================

Start the server - either use the all dependency JAR created by Maven

java -jar TVProgrammeExample/TVProgrammeREST/target/TVProgrammeREST-1.0.jar

or use the Maven jetty:plugin

cd TVProgrammeREST
mvn jetty:run

Post some TV programme data:

curl -XPOST -H "Content-Type: text/xml" http://localhost:8182/tv/programmes/1 -d'
<programme>
	<id>1</id>
	<title>KnightRider</title>
	<description>Michael Knight and his car Kitt</description>
</programme>'

Retrieve some TV programme data:

curl -XGET http://localhost:8182/tv/programmes/1

Update some data:

curl -XPUT -H "Content-Type: text/xml" http://localhost:8182/tv/programmes/1 -d'
<programme>
	<id>1</id>
	<title>KnightRider</title>
	<description>Michael Knight and his car Kitt</description>
	<same_as>http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083437/</same_as>
