Need to decouple your web service and client? You’re probably using REST endpoints, and if you’re a Java shop you’ve probably tried out JAX-RS, Spring REST, or both. But is one better than the other?

In future posts I’ll show you how easy it is to secure these REST endpoints using Apache Shiro and Okta.
