Jersey 1.5 is released
By sandoz on Jan 27, 2011
We have recently released version 1.5 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.
In the interval between releasing Jersey 1.4 and Jersey 1.5 both the JSR 311 project and the Jersey project transitioned to the new java.net infrastructure. There are probably a few links here and there that still need updating. One noticeable improvement is the visibility of the project to search engines now that HTTPS is not the default. That means it is much easier to search for stuff in the User guide and JavaDoc. The project name is starting to compete in search ranking with the island and comes out favorably when searching for JAX-RS.
This release contains mostly bug fixes rather than features. This version, failing any showstoppers, will be shipped with GlassFish 3.1.
