Use Apache Wink with the Jackson JSON processor

See the original posting on IBM developerWorks – Java

Apache Wink is fast becoming one of the de facto implementations of the
JAX-RS 1.0 specification. The providers included with the standard Apache
Wink distribution for JSON
marshalling and unmarshalling, such as JSON.org and Jettison, have some
problems with array representation and limited return types. Coding JAX-RS
services and their client Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) applications can be difficult.
In this article, learn a method for configuring an existing Apache
Wink-enabled Web application to use the Jackson JSON provider to solve
some of the problems. An example, with sample code for a simple
Jackson-enabled JAX-RS Web service, illustrates the advantages of this provider.
