RESTEasy brings REST architecture to JBoss
Bill Burke of JBoss has announced version 1.0 of RESTEasy, a fully certified and portable implementation of JAX-RS specification. The relatively new JBoss project provides various frameworks to assist developers to program Java based web applications using the Representational State transfer (REST) architecture. RESTEasy runs in a Servlet container like Tomcat, and provides good integration with the JBoss Application server.
JAX-RS (Java API for RESTful Web services) was developed as a JSR (Java Specification Request), specifically JSR-311, as part of the Java Community Process (JCP). The specification defines how to rapidly implement Java based applications with a REST architecture independent of the underlying web server and application server technology.
