Yes, exactly! Though I suppose if they are using RestEasy they will have this functionality by default, as you suggest. I wasn't thinking clearly when I wrote this, however. You are very correct. If RestEasy is already on the classpath, it should probably provide injection for web-service endpoints (via @Qualifer) annotations.

@Inject @RestEndpoint
private Endpoint<DataService> endpoint;

The endpoint could then provide access to things like the HttpClient, the Request object, methods to invoke:


And would take care of the bootstrap / typing / (un)marshalling, etc...

Pretty much a super-quick way of specifying a web-service endpoint and invoking it via RestEasy Client Framework (under the covers of course)
If there's an easier way, then this wouldn't be needed, but that's my thought!

Do you mean making a fork of the client framework in seam-rest or providing an integration with it (available when RESTEasy is on classpath)? I'll add it to the project ideas page.

Excellent! I think that's a good call, and will help people adopt!

Have we considered moving the RestEast Client Framework into Seam
RestEasy, or at least pulling it in if we are not already? That might be
another sweet feature to help wet people's appetite.

Since we're no longer directly targeting RESTEasy, having a client
consumer framework available to them would no longer be a "standard,"
but it certainly would be nice.

I think we should consider this if not already done.
