Jersey 188.8.131.52 and 1.1.2-ea are released
By sandoz on Aug 26, 2009
We have just released versions 184.108.40.206 and 1.1.2-ea of Jersey, the open source, production quality, reference implementation of JAX-RS.
This release contains a few important fixes (most notably a security fix for XML processing). See change log here.
To get started with Jersey read the getting started document. For an overview of JAX-RS features read the Jersey user guide. To understand more about what Jersey depends on read the dependencies document.
This is mostly a minor enhancement and bug fixing release. See change log here.
Naresh and I worked on improving the Jersey Test Framework. This breaks compatibility with the previous version in 1.1.1-ea but hopefully developers will see the improvements (note that many but not all Jersey samples use the test framework and eventually all samples will use it). See the API here.
Pavel worked on integrating some very basic GlassFish probes into the hierarchical matching algorithm and has wired them up to the GlassFish monitoring framework so it is possible to report simple statistics on which resource classes get matched to request URIs.
Two interesting developments of note:
- The Glassfish v3 RESTful interface for management and monitoring is progressing nicely. It needs to use a Jersey container request filter to massage the Accept header such that if HTML and XML-based media types are present the former always has the higher quality. Then the HTML representations will be returned when Safari is used.
- Akka is an Actor-based framework with Software Transactional Memory that is written in Scala. It can expose it's components RESTfully using Jersey and Cometfully ( ;-) ) using Atmosphere.
The next release, 1.1.3, is tentatively scheduled for the final release of Glassfish v3 in November and is dependent on alignment with other EE 6 technologies such as Servlet 3.0 and JSR 299/330. In addition we plan to implement full OSGi support thanks to the help and guidance of Richard Wallace (unfortunately we had no time to implement that for 1.1.2).
