Hi Jim,
we previously discussed a bit about this topic. I believe we should keep the oreilly-jaxrs-2.0-workbook examples there because they cover basic jaxrs 2.0 scenarios. Having the examples be automatically run in the build ensures no regressions happen. We already have the resteasy-examples repo, which we moved a bunch of examples to (and which needs to be fixed, while the workbook ones just run fine ;) ).
As for the other examples (war-tests) I agree on turning them into plain integration tests.

Regarding RESTEASY-1425, that can possibly be fixed by moving the jetty-plugin to a profile that is only enabled if -DskipTests=true is not specified.

Hi all,
When I was looking at the build issue: 
https://issues.jboss.org/browse/RESTEASY-1425, I thought the examples 
module should be moved to another repository (for example, name it to 
resteasy-examples) to make resteasy build run faster. From travis build 
log, remove these modules can save us about 3 mins build time.  If there 
is some important thing should be checked in these examples, we can 
change to a test and add it in resteasy repo, not package war file , 
start/stop Jetty in resteasy build. Besides this, I think these examples 
only need to run against resteasy release version. WDYT?
