Dynamic WADL in Jersey

Spider Web

WADL (TA entries) can be used in different ways in conjunction with REST services. The Original Presentations already described its use to help write clients/servers but later work has explored automatic generation of WADL from existing services (e.g. from Message Traces).

The latest Jersey has recently improved on a variant of this approach where the runtime dynamically generates WADL to represent an endpoint - see Marc and Paul. As they put it, this lets you "Waddle through the service". Seems an interesting approach.

BTW - Jersey is done in coordination with the Metro work and the Metro Roadmap shows the Jersey 1.0 fully integrated with Metro 2.1 late next year.
