Jersey 1.1.1-ea is released
By sandoz on Jul 15, 2009
We have just released version 1.1.1-ea of Jersey, the open source, production quality, reference implementation of the draft JAX-RS 1.1 API. The JAX-RS 1.0 specification and the 1.1 change log is available at the JCP web site and also available in non-normative HTML here.
It will be available soon from the GlassFish v2 and v3 update centers, and will be shipped with the latest GlassFish v3 builds.
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.
Between releases there has been some very interesting developments with a "sister" projected called Atmosphere. If you are interested in portable Comet support and how to avail of high-level ease of use support with Jersey check out JFA's latest blog entries.
This release took a little longer than expected with holidays post JavaOne, alignment with a version of JAXB for JSON namespace related features, a last minute XML-related security fix, and being hindered by the java.net infrastructure:
- Jakub has implemented the eagerly anticipated JSON namespace support for "mapped" (the default) and the "natural" conventions. In addition we have re-factored the JSONJAXBContext such that developers can use it to marshal and unmarshal JSON with JSONMarshaller and JSONUnmarshaller respectively.
- Paul Bryan and Hubert Le Van Gong have added OAuth which comprises Jersey client and server support that leverages an OAuth signature library. The modules are currently located here, but for 1.1.2-ea-SNAPSHOT and future releases they are located here.
- James Strachen has integrated support for lift templates with Jersey's MVC framework. The module is located here. To see Jersey, Scala and lift in action check out the RestMQ project.
See change log here.
The next release, 1.1.2-ea or 1.1.2, is tentatively scheduled for late August 2009 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.
