What is the status of standardizing a proxy-based client API in JAX-RS?
The current client API is rather low-level.

The main goal is to reuse the same JAX-RS annotations on an interface
client-side. The implementation creates a stub which a client can use
to call a restful resource. This model brings the same simplicity we
have on the serverside to the client.

All JAX-RS implementations have some kind of proxy-based extension
nowadays and it is also the core idea of frameworks like Square's
Retrofit and Netflix Feign.
