Hi Guenther,

You can use CXF registering the CXF JAXRS server using DS.

Another option could be to use Aries JAXRS with the whiteboard pattern.

We are preparing samples about that:


I will add an example with Aries JAXRS and DS.

With Aries JAXRS, you can simply do:

    property = {
        JaxrsWhiteboardConstants.JAX_RS_APPLICATION_SELECT +
        JaxrsWhiteboardConstants.JAX_RS_RESOURCE + "=true"

        if (_log.isDebugEnabled()) {
            _log.debug("URI: " + _uriInfo.getAbsolutePath());

tips out there suggesting to use Blueprint, which I don’t want, others seem to suggest that
I need to create a “feature” package.

only have to do that once. But is there really no simple way to create a simple REST service
using merely DS?
