Representational state transfer (REST) is a very popular architecture for distributed hypermedia. Lots of different web services expose their APIs in a RESTful manner. It is very convenient when a service of a choice provides a library for its API, but this is not always so. In this case you have to construct valid requests and parse responses by yourself. Assuming that you are familiar with REST itself, I will tell you how you can make your life easier with the help of Spring and Java annotations.
