Step by Step: How to bring JAX-RS and OSGi together


Most of the server-side Java systems I built over the last years had the following requirements: They should be modular to be highly extendable and of course they should have a REST API to lower the integration barrier for other systems. If you have similar requirements you probably choose two standards/technologies. For the modular part [...]
