Re: [wtp-dev] REST in WTP?

Check the WTP newsgroups as well regarding support for REST and JAX-RS, since there have been discussions about these topics.  I've opened to track this work.

Ugh, WRDL, not another one.

I think that the REST community are keen to remove themselves entirely from
the shackles of WSDL-like description, even WADL has not really penetrated
to any major extent that I can see (although such things are useful
for automated
testing tools and documentation).

No, if one was to do REST tools in Eclipse, it would be better approached to
have some kind of mapping to a programming model like JAX-RS, and something
like a form-based editor for resource planning.

The annotations framework in the JAXWS project has minor support in that you
can write an extension for the JAXRS annotations, and provide validations rules
for their use.
