    REST Module and MVC Framework

    gonzalad Apprentice

      Hello !


      I've just a simple question :


      Do you plan to provide first-class support for the MVC part of JAX-RS 2.0 ? (the same kind of support you provided for JSF in Seam 2)




      JAX-RS 2.0 MVC Support



      From http://www.infoq.com/news/2010/11/jaxrs-2, we can see that JAX-RS 2.0 will bring a MVC architecture (see note 1). Does this means that we'll have a Struts like standard JEE 7 framework ?


      If this is so, we'll have 2 standard web framework in Java EE 7 :



      1. JSF

      2. JAX-RS 2.0 MVC




      Seam Support for JAX-RS 2.0 MVC ?



      Seam provides perfect integration for JSF.


      Do you plan to provide first-class support for the MVC part of JAX-RS 2.0 ?


      Things like :



      1. Bean Validation integration (ok you have it ;) ).

      2. Support for templating (ok you're planning it - I think something like Jersey MVC http://blogs.sun.com/sandoz/entry/mvcj).

      3. displaying error messages on the user interface (from Bean Validation or custom messages)

      4. conversation handling

      5. ...

      6. and support with all this with whatever - at least JSP - kind of templating (not just facelets - this latter would lead to performance issues for high throughput web sites)




      In Java EE, we have the JSF standard framework, but it cannot be used for high throughtput web sites or for site where accessibility compliance is a concern.


      A standard Mvc framework would fill a gap here.
