The formal compliance cam be claimed only if the implementation has 
passed the final TCK. Unfortunately Apache has lost the access to Oracle 
TCK and therefore we can not claim a formal compliance due to the fact 
we can't run Apache CXF against the final TCK.

My personal point of view: CXF JAX-RS 2.0 implementation is technically 
sound with respect to supporting the 'letter' of JAX-RS 2.0. Testing 
against the Feb 2013 TCK has definitely helped too.

The remaining known issue is:

Of course, the final TCK may have the tests exposing some CXF issues.
I'm hoping the users will help us to trace such issues if any in the 
absence of the final TCK package.

Some EE-specific JAX-RS 2.0ptions (notably EJB) are not directly 
supported in CXF; Andriy Redko has done the initial CDI support which 
covers the relevant JAX-RS 2.0 text but it is a work in progress. I will 
be updating the wiki about it all too,

I updated this page yesterday due to some external concerns about Apache 
CXF being not factually correct about it. I'm kind of impressed we've 
got the query on the dev list the next day :-).

Cheers, Sergey
