Hi Author,

How does Restlet framework compare with JEE JAX-RS? Is Restlet easier to use? Does it have a better performance? What's your opinions to choose a Restful framework?

Thanks,
Qunfeng


To be or not to be. It's a question.

JAX-RS is just a spec and Jersey is Sun's... oops Oracle's reference implementation for the JSR. Restlets have been around for a long time even before the JSR was drafted. It is the most mature framework with an extensive feature list. You can find all about it at
Restlet Feature List

There are many a factors to be considered while choosing a restful framework or as such any framework viz
  • Feature set comparison
  • Extensions that the framework provides.
  • Ease in deployment.
  • Community/Commercial Support.
  • Documentation.
  • Maturity/Stability.
  • Learning curve
