12.13. RESTEasy Asynchronous Job Service

12.13.1. About the RESTEasy Asynchronous Job Service

The RESTEasy Asynchronous Job Service is designed to add asynchronous behavior to the HTTP protocol. While HTTP is a synchronous protocol it does have a faint idea of asynchronous invocations. The HTTP 1.1 response code 202, "Accepted" means that the server has received and accepted the response for processing, but the processing has not yet been completed. The Asynchronous Job Service builds around this.
To enable the service, refer to: Section 12.13.2, “Enable the Asynchronous Job Service”. For examples of how the service works, refer to Section 12.13.3, “Configure Asynchronous Jobs for RESTEasy”.
