RESTEasy 6.2.0.Final Release

By James R. Perkins | September 23, 2022

We are happy to announce the release of RESTEasy 6.2.0.Final and RESTEasy MicroProfile 2.0.0.Final. Both of these will end up in the up and coming WildFly 27 release.

RESTEasy 6.2.0.Final

As mentioned in a previous post the following two major changes are the reason for a 6.2.0.Final instead of 6.1.1.Final:

  1. RESTEASY-3085 - Upgrade Jackson to 2.13
  2. RESTEASY-3075 - Implement the EntityPart.withName()

There have also been some other bug fixes and component upgrades. The full release notes are available here.

Feel free to join in the discussion about the release.

RESTEasy MicroProfile 2.0.0.Final

This is the first final release which targets the Eclipse MicroProfile 5.0. This version of the Eclipse MicroProfile targets Jakarta EE 9.1.

The release is mostly focused on the namespace change from javax to jakarta. This is the biggest change along with requiring Java 11 at runtime. One of the reasons for this is the SmallRye implementations also require Java 11. The other reason is, itโ€™s probably time to move to Java 11 ๐Ÿ˜€.

Again, feel free to join in the discussion about the release.

Future of RESTEasy

As we continue to move forward with RESTEasy, 6.2 and 5.0 will be the currently maintained versions. The 6.1.x and older versions will longer be maintained.
