JAX-RS services in Google App Engine

I'm developing a Google App Enigne application that uses some REST services and offers in turn web services. I'm using the GAE Eclipse plugin. I have 2 questions:


  1. What is the best JAX-RS library to use with GAE nowadays? I'd like to use Jersey because I understand is the most "standard" library (isn't it?), but I could use any in principle... I've been looking for documentation, but I've only found some samples in blogs that only work with old versions of Jersey, etc...

  2. For the web services I have to offer, I thought of using JAX-RS as well, but now I'm not sure if it's the best option...


Answer

You can use Jersey 1.5. You can see all frameworks that will play on GAE at http://code.google.com/p/googleappengine/wiki/WillItPlayInJava

But GAE has realized on version 1.7.5 as experimental service Endpoints which in term are rest service. Check https://developers.google.com/appengine/docs/java/endpoints/

For web service I don't know if you mean soap service..JAX-RS is the specification for rest service, instead you should use JAX-WS I don't try the compatibility with this specification.
