Halbuilder is a simple Java API for generating and consuming HAL documents conforming to the HAL Specification.

Generating Local Resources

ResourceFactory representationFactory = new ResourceFactory();

Resource owner = representationFactory.newResource("http://example.com/mike")
  .withLink("td:friend", "http://example.com/mamund")
  .withProperty("name", "Mike")
  .withProperty("age", "36");

Resource halResource = representationFactory.newResource("http://example.com/todo-list")
  .withNamespace("td", "http://example.com/todoapp/rels/")
  .withLink("/todo-list/search;{searchterm}", "td:search")
  .withLink("/todo-list/description", "td:description")
  .withProperty("created_at", "2010-01-16")
  .withProperty("updated_at", "2010-02-21")
  .withProperty("summary", "An example list")
  .withSubresource("td:owner", owner);

String xml = halResource.renderContent(ResourceFactory.HAL_XML);
String json = halResource.renderContent(ResourceFactory.HAL_JSON);

Reading Local Resources

ResourceFactory representationFactory = new ResourceFactory();

Resource representation = representationFactory.readResource(new InputStreamReader(Some.class.getResourceAsStream("/test.xml")));
