Creating the Book Application
Unfortunately, the world doesn’t have much demand for “Hello World” APIs, and working on trivial applications is not going to help you for long. You are ready to start building something of more substance, driven by tests. For the remainder of this book, you will create a RESTful (hopefully) book API. Your book API will represent two main RESTful resources (books and authors) and a few other resources. You will be writing a RESTful API, and while I try to follow good practices, it might not be perfectly “RESTful.” I digress.
