Some Tyrus updates


Project Tyrus is the JSR 356 (Java API for WebSocket) Reference Implementation. As JSR 356 is part of Java EE 7 (Web Profile and the Full Java EE Platform), Tyrus is embedded in GlassFish 4. In addition, Tyrus *should* also run on any Servlet 3.1 compatible container.

Tyrus 1.0 was released mid 2013 when the JSR 356 specification went final. Since then, the work on Tyrus hasn't stopped and this is also true for other implementations such as Jersey for JAX-RS, Mojarra for JavaServer Faces, etc. For example, no less than 2 updates of Mojarra were released this week (2.2.5 & 2.1.27) but more on JSF later and back to Tyrus...

Here are some of features and improvments that were recently added to Tyrus :
