Dear Jersey users,
As you know from the last post by Paul, he left Oracle about a month ago and as a result of that lost write access to blogs.sun.com, so had to move his blog to a different location. I'd like to let you know we are going to keep this blog around as a valuable part of "internet memory" and an archive of lots of useful info.
I'd also like to use this opportunity to share a little more about the Jersey team and our future plans, since I've been receiving some questions around this recently.
Jakub Podlesak, who worked closely with Paul and Marc from the very beginning of Project Jersey, took over Paul's role of the Jersey technical lead. Next week we are planning to release Jersey 1.6 and we are resuming the 6-8 weeks release cycles (which we kind of stopped doing as we were finalizing delivery for GlassFish 3.1). Together with Pavel Bucek - another senior member of our team - they are doing their best to make sure you continue loving Jersey :), and Jon Benoit - our QA engineer is making sure whatever features we put in are well tested.
Marek Potociar, former lead of Project WSIT, took over the Jersey 2.0 prototyping work from Paul and is now working closely with Roberto Chinnici on co-driving JAX-RS 2.0. You will start seeing him more often once we push the 2.0 prototyping work to the open workspace.
Here are the team's blogs you may want to bookmark to be able to track the future progress of Jersey more closely:
- http://blogs.sun.com/japod/ - Jakub's blog
- http://blogs.sun.com/PavelBucek/ - Pavel's blog
- http://marek.potociar.net/ - Marek's blog
And we always welcome questions and suggestions on our mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your continued support!
Dev. Manager, Jersey Team
