Jersey, from Android to Mainframe
Jersey has a large, active and involved community. For example, there was a bug in Jersey when used on z/OS (who doesn’t use Jersey on z/OS?). A community member raised this particular issue along with a suggested fix, fix which has been integrated in 2.16.
Jersey 2.16 is also solving some of the issues related to running the Jersey client stack on Android. Supporting Android is more a side project and Jersey 2.16 clearly shows some initial success. But more work needs to be done. The Jersey Team is looking for concrete feedback on real uses-cases and why not, community contributions too.
So with 2.16, you can finally run a Jersey client on an Android phone connecting to a Jersey server running on Z/OS! Yeah!
And it’s not because the Jersey community is already large and active that you cannot participate, contributions are always welcome! See here on the different ways to contribute to Jersey.
