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 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.
