I am learning restful webservices and all the tutorials use* package. But with JDK 6 anf JDK 7, my eclipse doesn't seem to recognize package. What am I missing here?

Do you have jsr311-api.jar in your classpath - tenorsax 2012-04-04 03:25
Adding jsr311-api.jar fixed the issue. But the java 6 API mentions these classes. Not sure why I need to add it separately - user238021 2012-04-04 06:03

2 is not a JDK package; it is a server-side API that forms part of the Java EE specification. You would need to include a Java EE runtime on your classpath or source an implementation from a 3rd party if you're going the self-assembly route (e.g. using Tomcat.)

Why is jax-ws (Soap based) shipped with JDK but not jax-rs (Rest based) - Abidi 2014-02-18 16:14
@Abidi I guess it is because it is much easier to write a REST client than a SOAP client but I can't give a definitive answer - McDowell 2014-02-18 16:34
Interesting, jax-rs does come with Metro stack and Metro is shipped with JDK6. This means not full stack of Metro is shipped with JDK. Confused - Abidi 2014-02-18 16:43
@Abidi I do not think Metro is a JAX-RS implementation. I believe Jersey is the JAX-RS reference implementation - McDowell 2014-02-18 16:53


You're may be missing Jersey installation, or something in your environment configuration. Try also installing Eclipse WPT. You can follow this tutorial, it covers prerequisites and basic installation procedures as well.

I added jersey installation to classpath. But Jersey does not have package. shouldn't package be in Java 6 SDK? But it doesn't seem to be - user238021 2012-04-04 06:00
