My project is organized in layers like
Our REST Controller is in the Controller layer. We need to connect to another API via REST calls and I'm not sure if I should make a new Controller or do it in the Service layer.
I'm going to implement the REST calls with Spring's RestTemplate.
The way our API will be used is like this:
- REST call is made that goes through our REST endpoint.
- Our REST endpoint will call the third party API (either by calling another controller method or a service method).
- We will then do a conversion between our format and the third party format
- Then we will return the JSON of our format back to the client
