kiranj0001 , hope the below link will help you to build rest API which supports the different format, whenever the user is calling the rest API, a user needs to specify in which format he is expecting the response www.vogella.com/.../article.html
You may want to do something like this below:
/* Assuming the consumer request passes a parameter contentFormat with values either JSON or XML
* Get the requestFormat
/* Set contentType to set in response based on request Format
local!contentType: if( local!requestFormat="JSON", "application/json", "application/xml")
* Do some application logic and set local!data as data to be sent back as response.
* set content-type based on local!contentType
a!httpHeader(name: "Content-Type", value: local!contentType)
* use tojson or toxml based on requestFormat
body: if( local!requestFormat="JSON", a!toJson(local!data), toxml(local!data))
you should use spring boot to develop rest api and add dependency
<dependency> <groupId>com.fasterxml.jackson.dataformat</groupId> <artifactId>jackson-dataformat-xml</artifactId> </dependency>
Now spring boot will support for both format xml and json .
