[jax-rs-spec users] Re: Client proxy framework

This is an interesting feature, which shortens development time for clients, and prevents hard-to-find typos. But I have two questions:

(1) If I write a resource class that implements that interface, will it inherit the annotations?

(2) How does the framework handle MIME types?

Resteasy's client proxy frameork has been a very popular feature and in use for 6+ years. Basically it allows you to use JAX-RS annotations on the client side to create a typed client proxy. i.e.

public interface MyService {

     MyData getData(@QueryParam("param") String param);

     Response postData(@FormParam("param") int param);


Then, you can take this interface and generate a client proxy:

Client client = ClientBuilder.newClient(); MyService service = client.proxy(MyService.class);

MyData data = service.getData("value");

There's other minor details involved, but do you get the gist? Again, this is a very popular feature and IMO, a very natural extension to the client api.
