Hi Khiem,

 This portable Client API is being defined as part of this JSR (339). The JSR isn't final yet and implementation work has only just started. The final API and implementations will be available as part of Java EE 7 (end of 2012).

Just looked at a few articles from Santiago Pericas-Geertsen ( about JAX-RS 2.0 Client API and thatís exactly what I am looking for but I donít want to have another dependency on another framework such as Resteasy or Jersey. Can I just use JAX-RS 2.0 alone? Does the library contain implementation as well?
