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.

The current version supports an embeddable server implementation for JUnit testing and a set of providers including XML, JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), YAML, Fast Infoset and Atom. Asynchronous HTTP (Comet) abstractions are provided for JBoss Web, Tomcat 6 and Java Servlet 3.0. RESTEasy also includes Enterprise Java Beans (EJB), Spring, and Spring MVC integration and is can run on any application server using JDK 5 or later.

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.
