Back in January 2012, I wrote about the release of the OSGi JAX-RS connector in version 1.0. The connector gives you the opportunity to publish resources by registering @Path annotated types as OSGi services. I’m glad to say that the connector is in production use in many projects. It is pretty stable and as a result there was not much need for maintenance. So, why release a version 2.0? A few weeks ago I wanted to provide a small REST API using Apache Karaf as runtime. For this I also wanted to use the JAX-RS connector. Unfortunately, I had to accept that the connector was not able to run on Karaf and Felix because of certain issues.
