Return CREATED HTTP Status Code in Jax-Rs

Use created(URI location) of the javax.ws.rs.core.Response class. Usually when you return the 201 HTTP Status Code, you should return a location header with the location where the new REST resource is available.

import javax.ejb.Stateless;
import javax.inject.Inject;
import javax.ws.rs.*;
import javax.ws.rs.core.*;

@Path("messages")
@Stateless
@Tag(name = "Message")
public class MessageRestResource {

  @Inject private MessageService messageService;

  @POST
  @Consumes(MediaType.TEXT_PLAIN)
  @Operation(summary = "Create message")
  @ApiResponses({
    @ApiResponse(
        responseCode = "201",
        description = "Message successfully created."),
    @ApiResponse(responseCode = "403", description = "Forbidden")
  })
  public Response createMessage(
      @Parameter(description = "Message") String message, @Context UriInfo uriInfo)
      throws JAXBException {
    Message created = messageService.createMessage(message);
    UriBuilder builder = uriInfo.getAbsolutePathBuilder();
    builder.path(created.getUuid().toString());
    return Response.created(builder.build()).build();
  }

In the snippet the UriBuilder method builder.path(created.getUuid().toString()) appends the identifier of the newly created message (uuid) to the absolute path of the request, which was obtained from the uriInfo
