  • Apache Wink and REST Services in Java

    Posted on December 8th, 2010 Sandeep No comments

    Over the past couple of weeks, I have been evaluating Apache Wink for developing RESTful services in Java. I am very impressed with what it’s capable of. The project is still in ‘incubation’ stage, and implements the JAX-RS v1.1 spec providing both a server component and a client module.

    While I haven’t used the client capabilities yet, the server module is pretty feature-rich. I had some issues getting authentication to work, but I think I have mostly figured it out. Will post an update once I run some tests.
