After some analysis, we are convinced that the best place for this work is in In fact, as many of you may recall, this was on our list for JAX-RS 2.0 but we've never got a chance to discuss it in any detail.

I plan to send an e-mail to the JSF alias as a way to establish a liaison between the two groups. I believe their expertise would be of great value for us and will help us design a framework that addresses the requirements of the EE community.
Look forward to JAX-RS supporting MVC and SSE. As far as the future
JAX-RS MVC is concerned, I hope it will not only target EE users though
:-). i.e, it would work even if no JSF is available, but of course the
input from JSF experts will be of great interest.
Using Jersey MVC as a template would be a nice start IMHO, we have a
less involved support for it, but I think it is close enough to the way
Jersey does it in some cases.
