Back at the end of July I mentioned that the team would have focussed on JSR-370... and here I am few months later, happy to announce that the first Beta release of RESTEasy 4 has been tagged over the weekend and it features JAX-RS 2.1 implementation.
However this beta comes with more additions... besides for the implementation of the latest specification for RESTful webservices in Java, here is a brief list of what's new:
- New async / NIO http client engine based on Apache HttpAsynchClient
- Extended server side async support and RxJava(2) integration
- Support for redirect in JAX-RS client
- JDK 9 GA compatibility
Please consider trying the latest release and providing feedback!
