JAX-RS is simple and cool, and we wanted to make it even simpler for you Tapestry dudes! Tapestry-resteasy is a drop-in module for making your webapplication RESTful. Follow our tapestry-resteasy-0.0.1 guide to set it up (I promise it's easy ). Note that not all of the JBoss or java.net jars are in Central repo, so if you are one of the poor developers who are running Maven not backed up by a proper repository proxy, you can activate -Prepositories profile to enable downloading directly from the JBoss and java.net repositories. Have fun with it! Oh and if something goes wrong, don't blame me, this module is all Alejandro Scandroli's ingenious work!
