Perhaps the simplest option is to just have @GET & @POST and also register a
custom ExceptionMapper<WebApplicationException>, this mapper can check the
status of the Response this exception containis and then if it is 405 (no
HTTP method matched) then create a custom response and return it from the
exception mapper.

Even a simpler option is to register a CXF JAX-RS filter and have JAX-RS
Request injected or just check the Message parameter for the
Message.REQUEST_METHOD value, if it's not GET/POST then  return a non-null
Response say with 405, etc

Hope it helps, Sergey
