Chapter 11. JAX-RS Web Services

11.1. About JAX-RS

JAX-RS is the Java API for RESTful web services. It provides support for building web services using REST, through the use of annotations. These annotations simplify the process of mapping Java objects to web resources. The specification is defined here: http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=311.
RESTEasy is the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6's implementation of JAX-RS. It also provides additional features to the specification.
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is 100% compliant with JSR 311 - JAX-RS.
To get started with JAX-RS and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6, refer to the helloworld-rs, jax-rs-client, and kitchensink quickstart: Section 1.5.2.1, “Access the Java EE Quickstart Examples”.
