Santiago Pericas-Geertsen on JAX-RS 2

The 130th episode of the Java Spotlight podcast features an interview with JAX-RS 2 co-spec lead Santiago Pericas-Geertsen. JAX-RS 2 is one of the key parts of the Java EE 7 platform and a vital update to the very popular API. Santiago talks with Roger Brinkley about the motivation for the JSR, some of the API details such as the client API, asynchronous processing, interceptors/filters, Hypermedia support and content negotiation, current status of the JSR as well as what's in the future.

You can listen to the full podcast here. It's really a great starting point for learning about JAX-RS 2. You can certainly give the proposed final draft a read yourself (the API recently passed it's final approval ballot). At ninety some pages, it is not too bad of a read. You can also try the API out with a GlassFish promoted build.
