Jersey 1.2 is released
By sandoz on May 10, 2010
We have just released version 1.2 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 HTML here.
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.
The main driver for this release is basic OSGi support. This has been hard work as Jakub will testify. Most of Jakub's time was spent on testing.
Currently only the jersey-core, jersey-server, jersey-client and jersey-json modules have been made OSGi aware (the other modules will be completed in the next release). The following deployment scenarios work. Deploying using Grizzly or Jetty with the OSGi HTTP service (see osgi-http-service sample) and deploying OSGi war-bundles to Jetty (see helloworld-osgi-webapp sample). Deployment requires that root resource and provider classes are explicitly declared (the next release will hopefully support package scanning).
For the next release, 1.3, Jersey will only work on Java SE 6 or greater.
