The earlier blogs created a WebSocket endpoint as:
import javax.net.websocket.annotations.WebSocketEndpoint;

public class MyEndpoint {
. . .

Based upon the href="http://java.net/projects/websocket-spec/lists/users/archive/2012-12/message/34">discussion
in JSR 356 EG, the package names have changed to javax.websocket.*.
So the updated endpoint definition will look like:
import javax.websocket.WebSocketEndpoint;

public class MyEndpoint {
. . .

The POM dependency is:

And if you are using href="http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/glassfish/4.0/promoted/glassfish-4.0-b66.zip">GlassFish
4 build 66, then you also need to provide a dummy
EndpointFactory implementation as:
import javax.websocket.WebSocketEndpoint;

@WebSocketEndpoint(value="websocket", factory=MyEndpoint.DummyEndpointFactory.class)
public class MyEndpoint {
 . . .   

class DummyEndpointFactory implements EndpointFactory {
public Object createEndpoint() { return null; }

This is only interim and will be cleaned up in subsequent builds.
But I've seen couple of complaints about this already and so this
deserves a short blog.

Have you been tracking the latest Java EE 7 implementations in href="http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/glassfish/4.0/promoted/">GlassFish
