Apache Wink

Apache Wink is an incubating project that will allow you to write RESTful JAX-RS (JSR-311) web apps – like Jersey. Read what Dr. Fielding has to say about what is REST and what’s not.

So I gave the beta of the jetty maven plugin a try. What I had was this:

Already there is a ton of new features in the current release – along with decent documentation! Thanks!
