You might have recently read about the very interesting new features being developed these days in RESTEasy... great, the time has come to deliver them in a couple of releases!

Last week, RESTEasy 3.6.0.Final and 4.0.0.Beta4 have been tagged, built and published; here is a list of the most relevant additions coming with them:

  • client and server side reactive extensions [1][2]
  • parameter annotations with default names [3][4]
  • JettyClientEngine to use jetty-client with JAX-RS Client [5]
  • SPI to modify resource metadata [6]

 

Moreover, 4.0.0.Beta4, also feature the first part of the changes for the tracing system [7] and asynchronous container filters [8] support.

Both releases are available on the usual Maven repository, feel free to try them out!

3.6.0.Final is also being pulled into WildFly master, targetting inclusion in WildFly 14 release.

Enjoy!
