Its been just over two years since the last version of WADL was published and, in the intervening time, a number of issues have accumulated. I've held off making regular updates for reasons of stability but I think there's sufficient backlog now to require a new version. First drafts of the updated specification and schemas are available at:
The JAX-RS public review draft is now available for, er, review - download it here.
If you are attending JavaOne we'd love to see you at any or all of the following sessions:
I'm working on an internal project building some RESTful services using a combination of Jersey, JPA, Glassfish and Derby. Actions on some resources require authentication and I need access to the name of the authenticated user in the resource method.
I'm working on an internal project that involves adding Atom Publishing Protocol support to a data store. Naturally, I'm using Jersey for the HTTP side of things and decided to give Apache Abdera a try for simplifying working with feeds and entries.
For a long time you've been able to retrieve a WADL document that describes the set of resources that make up a Jersey application. However, the returned WADL was generated at compile time and would only include resources that were statically known.
The first early draft of JSR 311 is now available for review, download the spec and Javadoc here. As the name suggests this is an early draft and the specification is far from complete but it does provide an early look at the current API.
