Chapter 13. Asynchronous JAX-RS
Server Asynchronous Response Processing > Exception Handling

The sample code takes "AsyncResponse response" as an argument, then inside the Thread.run() method it creates "Response response" (same name). Therefore response.resume(response); will generate a compiler error. It doesn't find a method "resume" for Response. public void submit(final Order order, final @Suspended AsyncResponse response) { new Thread() { public void run() { ... Response response = Response.ok(confirmation, MediaType.APPLICATION_XML_TYPE) .build(); response.resume(response); } }.start(); } We should rename the Response object inside Thread.run to something else to avoid hiding the AsyncResponse object. Something like: Response r = Response.ok(confirmation, MediaType.APPLICATION_XML_TYPE) .build(); response.resume( r );

Note from the Author or Editor:
p. 194 of PDF Change code block to: Response res= Response.ok(confirmation, MediaType.APPLICATION_XML_TYPE) .build(); res.resume(response);

Chapter 13. Asynchronous JAX-RS
Server Asynchronous Response Processing > Timeouts

The following code generates a compiler error response.setTimeoutHandler( new TimeoutHandler { void handleTimeout(AsyncResponse response) { response.resume(Response.serverError().build()); } } ); There is a missing "()" for the TimeoutHandler constructor. Also, the handleTimeout method must be declared "public". The code without the missing parts would be: response.setTimeoutHandler( new TimeoutHandler() { public void handleTimeout(AsyncResponse response) { response.resume(Response.serverError().build()); } } );

Note from the Author or Editor:
p. 196 of PDF, the last code block should be response.setTimeoutHandler( new TimeoutHandler() { public void handleTimeout(AsyncResponse response) { response.resume(Response.serverError().build()); } } );

Chapter 17, "Example Requirements and Structure" states JDK 6.0 or later is required. When I used the examples in Rest Easy3.0.7 and tried to build ex03_1, I found that JDK 7 is actually required in order for the build to complete successfully.

Note from the Author or Editor:
p. 251 of print. Change "JDK 6.0 or later" to "JDK 7.0 or later"

Chapter 8 - Building and Invoking Requests

The following code will give a compiler error because of the "accept()" method. The method "request()" is missing. It should precede "accept()". Customer customer = client.target("http://commerce.com/customers/123") .accept("application/json") .get(Customer.class); List<Customer> customer = client.target("http://commerce.com/customers") .accept("application/xml") .get(new GenericType<List<Customer>>() {});

Note from the Author or Editor:
P. 117 of PDF last code block add .request() before .accept() .request().accept("application/json") P. 118 of PDF, first code block, add .request() before .accept() .request().accept("application/xml")

First code for the HTTP request

PUT /orders/233 HTTP/1.1 Content-Type: application/xml <product id="111"> <name>iPhone</name> <cost>$149.99</cost> </product> If this request is for changing the product´s price, why is the resource path "/orders/233"? I would expect "/products" instead. Thanks.

Note from the Author or Editor:
In the code block in the middle of p. 23 of the PDF, change PUT /orders/233 HTTP/1.1 to PUT /products/111 HTTP/1.1

Dear author, In the code example that shows injecting ServletContext in Application class to initialize resources with servlet context parameters, you've injected ServletContext well,however in getSingleton() method, you're also initializing a new InitialContext() to get the values for context parameters. It appears these values should be pulled from ServletContext instance.

Note from the Author or Editor:
p. 210 of printed. change this code try { InitiialContext ctx = new InitialContext(); Integer size = (Integer)ctx.getInitParameter(...); Changes to make/ 1. Remove the InitialContext ctx = new IntiailContext() line entirely 2. The next line changes to Integer size = (Integer)servletContext.getInitParameter(

The code example at the bottom of the page shows calling the newClient method on client. That method does not exist. Instead it should be ClientBuilder.newClient(). See http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/7/api/javax/ws/rs/client/ClientBuilder.html#newClient().

Note from the Author or Editor:
P. 225 of PDF code fragment near end of page change: Client client = Client.newClient(); to Client client = ClientBuilder.newClient();
