Vrrrrrooommm: Jersey 0.6 released...with Grizzly 1.7.2!

Today the Jersey community has released version 0.6....with support for Grizzly 1.7.2 and its new Request/Response API. To read the official announcement, see Paul's blog.


Under the hood, Grizzly 1.7.2 is used. 1.7.2 added a new set of API (based on community feedback :-)) that makes much more easier the task of embedding the monster. The new API has also been adopted by JTXA, soon Phobos/Netbeans and GlassFish v3. So what was the problem before? Before, the Grizzly HTTP API wasn't offering useful object like Input/OutputStream, Reader/Writer and high level Request/Response object. So every application that embedded Grizzly has to implement their own, having the same issues and asking the same questions on our user list :-). The new API contains:

With those classes, you no longer have reasons to not embed Grizzly HTTP!!
