Challenge: Use a JWT Token and Call a JAX-RS Endpoint

Use a JWT token and call a JAX-RS endpoint in this challenge.

We'll cover the following

Problem statement

This problem extends the challenge from “Form Based Authentication With PrimeFaces” so that the application generates a JWT token and calls a JAX-RS endpoint in a second application. The result of the challenge lesson “Use Form Based Authentication With PrimeFaces” can be used as service-a where we need to add the creation of the JWT token. Service-b contains the endpoint that requires a valid JWT and returns a claim, similar to what took place in “JWT Token with standards.”

Try it yourself

  • createToken()
