    nice tutorial,

    When I am trying to create web service using option "RESTful web service from patterns" there is option "Use jersey specific features", But I am not able to see this option. I have same version installed on other machine, there I can see that option. I have tried adding jersey-core-1.xx.bundle jar in the library, but i am able to use this feature.

    How Can do that?
