On the last Friday, we have released the 1.9 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.
Jersey artifacts are finally available in the central maven repositories.
I.e. when using maven, you should not need to specify the <repositories/> tag
any more. Snapshot versions of Jersey will become available in a new Java.net maven repository.
Besides a number of bug fixes, the major additions included in this version are: non-blocking asynchronous client feature (moved over to the contribs space from the experimental area, see Pavel's blog for details), FreeMarker support and WADL improvements made by Gerard Davison (see his blog post here),
which allows you to automatically attach XML schema to the generated WADL.
