Abstract: Seems like lately if you want to be a player in the API Economy you need to have a REST API.
When we developed Java Batch (JSR-352) support in WebSphere Liberty we didn't want to be left out, so we provided a REST interface to help manage the batch jobs. There is certainly documentation provided in the Knowledge Center about the API and you can use the API Discovery feature of Liberty to explore the interface interactively (which is really pretty cool too). But it can be a lot to absorb and sometimes it is difficult to know where to start.
In this paper we'll try to find an easy way to approach the API and understand the basics.
