Jersey 1.0 is an open-source, production-ready reference implementation of JAX-RS, the Java API for RESTful Web Services (JSR-311). Jersey makes it easy to create RESTful web services in Java.
In this tip you will build a Jersey-based web application that provides information about printer status. The application returns the information in JSON format. To build the application, you will use the Maven 2 software project management tool. For more information about Maven, see Welcome to Maven and Building Web Applications with Maven 2.
