On the last Friday, we have released the 1.6 version of Jersey, the open source,
production quality, reference implementation of JAX-RS. The JAX-RS 1.1 specification
is available at the JCP web site and also available in non-normative
For an overview of JAX-RS features read the Jersey user
guide. To get started with Jersey read the getting started section of that guide. To understand more about what Jersey
depends on read the dependencies section of that guide. See change log here.
In this release, we started with the
jersey-server modularization. Only recently, Grizzly version 2.0 was released. We moved the Grizzly 2 Jersey module from the experimental area, added the Grizzly HTTP Servlet support and some tests, and created a new Jersey
jersey-grizzly2 module. At the same time we extracted the Grizzly version 1 support from the
jersey-server module, and introduced a new,
jersey-grizzly module. We also switched the majority of the Jersey functional tests from Grizzly 1 to Grizzly 2 to make sure everything works fine there. Grizzly 2 support was added to the Jersey test framework as well.
Besides the Grizzly 2 integration, Pavel spent some cycles on the test code coverage report for Jersey.
Another update in the Jersey 1.6 release is a great improvement of the Jersey OAuth client provided by Martin. To depict the functionality Martin also introduced a new, Jersey OAuth Twitter Client example.
