-> If GZIP is acceptable then the simples option is to add 
-> @org.apache.cxf.annotation.GZIP to a root resource class.

Just to be sure, in this case, after adding this annotation:
- all subresources class will be configured as well or I have to add this annotation too?
- must I add a "application/x-gzip" MIME type on JAX-RS methods?

PS: about this point, we choose to have an interceptor mechanism at application level to handle
lock/unlock on resources when necessary. Thanks!

If GZIP is acceptable then the simples option is to add 
@org.apache.cxf.annotation.GZIP to a root resource class.

We also have a utility for supporting Deflate [1] encoding which I guess 
is somewhat different to GZIP:

The actual utility is in the rs xml security module - but if it were of 
interest then we'd make it available at the common rt/core level, let us

P.S By the way, recall our conversation about making sure that a custom 
ResponseHandler is invoked even if the exception is thrown from the 
server application code, I can't seem to find that thread, but the thing 
which I forgot to mention last time was that providing a custom 
ExceptionMapper for Throwable would guarantee a Response would be avail 
for response filters no matter what
