Pearson Technology Summit 6.0 (2012)
This project contains sample applications for the "Instant REST Services With RestExpress" workshop.
You can either 'clone' this project via:
git clone git://github.com/tfredrich/PTS-2012-Blogging.git
Or download the zip file from the downloads area at:
Once either cloned or unzipped to your disk, you'll find two directories, "complete" and "kickstart". In the "complete" directory is a fully-functioning example of what we'll be building during the workshop--a functional blogging service suite.
In the "kickstart" directory, is the empty shell that we'll be starting with--the RestExpress Scaffolding application. While this has been inserted here to facilitate us getting going rapidly in the workshop, it is also available here as a stand-alone download:
Which is where you'll want to get the latest version when you create your own projects--outside of the workshop.
To run these applications, you'll need Java (1.7), Ant, and MongoDB.
