Jersey descriptors in test package and REST testing

Dan Allen Master

From the article Writing lightweight REST integration tests with the Jersey Test Framework, I noticed that Jersey has a webapp descriptor builder in the test package. This is obviously an opportunity to show where ShrinkWrap descriptors can be generally applicable.


    .initParam(WebComponent.RESOURCE_CONFIG_CLASS, ClassNamesResourceConfig.class.getName())
        TodoResource.class.getName() + ";" +
        MockTodoServiceProvider.class.getName() + ";" +


Here's the JavaDoc for WebAppDescriptor.


This article also reminds us that the Arquillian REST extension prototype is probably worth converting to an official module at this point. I'll follow-up on that in a thread in the Arquillian dev forums.
