JAX-RS is a framework designed to help you write RESTful applications both on the client and server side. Jersey 2.0 provides Reference Implementation for JAX-RS 2.0.

Jersey 2.0 provides support for Java SE HTTP Server, Grizzly 2 HTTP server, Servlet 2.5 or higher containers as well as OSGi containers on the server side and HTTPURLConnection - based or Grizzly asynchronous client transport connectors. To leverage JAX-RS/Jersey server-side async features in a Servlet container, you need a container that supports Servlet 3.0 at least. Jersey supports asynchronous resource invocations on Grizzly 2 HTTP server too.
