I have ensured all parts of REST are adopted at VSP, most specifically, HATEOAS.

Expert Group member of JSR 339 / JAX-RS 2.0 Vendor of "WebDAV Support for JAX-RS" Actively contributed the community's view on JAX-RS in comparison to some others who mainly contributed a vendor's view on their own product, or who did not contribute anything to any discussion on the EG's list at all! ;-) Contributed ideas particularly in the field of filters, async, HTTP transparency, and extensibility, which are now found in JAX-RS 2.0 but possibly would not exist to the extent needed to fulfil JAX-RS's key role in future Java EE 8 without being persistent sometimes. ;-) Oct 15, 2014 Y Y
