Marek's JAX-RS 2.0 content from Devoxx 2011

Marek Potociar, one of the two co-spec leads for the upcoming JAX-RS 2.0 had a very well-attended session at Devoxx and wrote a blog post about it detailing his conference experience (1st time at Devoxx) and running through the new features of the specification.

A link to slides is also included in his post.


The work by the expert group seems very solid at this point as you can read for yourself in details in the recently published early draft document.

You can follow the remaining work between now and the middle of new year on the specification project pages on
