I'm new to JBoss and to Java (a few months). My background is in .NET / SQL Server, and this stuff is a lot easier there.
So, what I'm trying to do is create a web service that does the following:
1) Allow the (mobile) user to upload an image
2) Store that image in a database
3) Respond to the user with a success message
4) Send notifications out to the user's friends
I've looked all over the place, and there's lots of documentation, but I'm getting a little overwhelmed. I know I need to create a service with a POST method, and have it reply with an HttpResponse. I just can't seem to figure out the best way to do that - I keep running into walls of assumed knowledge that I don't have. I can handle the database part of it, and the notifications can come later. So I'm really hoping someone can point me to a step-by-step that includes instructions on creating a basic service with a POST method and hopefully some instruction on building the response object.
Thanks, and I look forward to learning JBoss!
OK, I'll try to be more specific. I created a Dynamic Web Project and added a Simple Web Service to it. I then added a WebMethod to accept an image and return an ID. I think that's right, but I now have no idea how to deploy and test it; I'm not sure whether I have the Dynamic Web Project set up right. I've tried setting up Maven, but I'm also not very familiar with that, so I'm really just guessing.
I tried doing Run As --> Run on Server, and I get all sorts of errors. Googled them, not much help; the real problem is I'm kind of fumbling around.
Again, all of the documentation I'm finding seems to assume I know a lot about JBoss or EJB or Jersey etc etc. Would really appreciate any help.
