JAX-RS 1.X has been a hugely successful Java API, and a lot of real-world experience has resulted in proposals of several new features. JSR 339 was created in early 2011, with the objective of exploring and scoping all these proposals.
The purpose of this technical session is to elaborate on all the new features being discussed. The most commonly requested feature for JAX-RS 2.0 is a client API. Client APIs can range from low-level, just above HttpURLConnection, to high-level, often including support for IoC and hyperlinking. Other features this presentation covers are hypermedia, MVC, validation, interceptors, improved content negotiation, and better integration with other specifications such as JSR 330.
