Hi everybody,

The Dutch Java User Group held a hackathon about MVC/JSR-371 and gave some
feedback on the mvc-users list:

A question was why follwoing MVC features are not part of JAX-RS also:

* Handling Validation Exceptions in a resource/controller method rather
then a central ExceptionMapper
* CSRF Protection

I think they are not so important for JAX-RS as for MVC but there may be
use cases in JAX-RS also.

What do you think?

best regards
Florian Hirsch
