Jersey 0.9 is released
By sandoz on Aug 22, 2008
For this and further releases the mechanism to obtain Jersey is different. There is no longer one zip file to download. Jersey is now modularized and mavenized thanks to the hard work of Jakub. Jars, source, JavaDoc and samples are all available from the Java.Net maven repo at the following base URI:
All the samples can be obtained individually or as one zip file.
Now it is much easier for maven developers to use Jersey. But as a consequence it is a little harder for non-maven developers to use Jersey. To aid such developers we provide a detailed dependencies document and a bundled jar containing all jersey-related functionality that was previously available in the 0.8 release.
In this release i managed to add support for generic server-side filters and a specific filter to support the "X-HTTP-Method-Override" HTTP header for clients that do not support HTTP PUT and DELETE. Martin has integrated JavaDoclet WADL support. See the example here for more details.
In the past week we have been doing things in parallel and i have been working on the 0.10 implementation before 0.9 is released. We need to step up the pace as the 1.0 finishing line is just a few weeks away.
