JAX-RS Whiteboard

Build Status Maven Central

Aries JAX-RS Whiteboard is the reference implementation of the OSGi JAX-RS Services Whiteboard 1.0.


The whiteboard is configured using configuration admin.

org.apache.aries.jax.rs.whiteboard.defaultDefault JAX-RS Whiteboard instance
org.apache.aries.jax.rs.whiteboardFactory PID for creating additional JAX-RS Whiteboard instances

replace.loopback.address.with.localhostfalseReplace loopback addresses by localhost (e.g. by UriBuilder)
application.ready.service.filterA service that must be present in order for applications to get started

properties existing in the application service, as those in the whiteboard configuration, are used when the servlet contexts and servlets are registered.


The integrations folder contains OSGi enabled integrations for a variety of useful libraries that you might want to use with JAX-RS. In many cases these are just adding OSGi lifecycle and configuration to existing JAX-RS enabled libraries.


Execute the maven tasks mvn clean install.
