Welcome to Apache WINK

Apache Wink is an Apache Incubator project. The Apache Wink proposal contains the basic information pertaining the project. In short:

Apache Wink is a project that enables development and consumption of REST style web services. The core server runtime is based on the JAX-RS (JSR 311) standard. The project also introduces a client runtime which can leverage certain components of the server-side runtime. Apache Wink will deliver component technology that can be easily integrated into a variety of environments.
