Wildfly 8.0 provides seamless JSON support via its JAXRS 2.0 implementation

Its great to see Wildfly 8.0 making it so much easier to work with BOTH XML and JSON representations from a common set of JAXB classes without any extra plumbing or configuration of different JAXB run time implementation

All you need to do is

  • Just return the JAXB objects from your business methods within the JAXRS resource classes
  • Set the HTTP Accept header to application/json

Simple business method returning the JAXB class


 The JSON result
