Introducing RestExpress: Instant, High-Performance, RESTful Services in Java

Posted by Todd

Powered by RestExpress

RestExpress is the easiest way to create RESTful web services in Java. An extremely Lightweight, Fast, REST Engine and API for Java. Supports JSON and XML serialization automagically as well as ISO 8601 date formats. A thin wrapper on Netty IO HTTP handling, RestExpress lets you create extremely scalable, stand-alone REST web services rapidly.

It takes 5 minutes to get your first services up and running using the kickstart application and we've seen 15,000+ requests per second and 10,000 simultaneous connections on a single desktop box. Try accomplishing that with the competition!

Inspired by Ruby on Rails and Sinatra, RestExpress is designed as a micro-framework with sub-projects, Syntaxe, RepoExpress and OAuthExpress to provide domain/DTO validation, MongoDB persistence storage and OAuth authentication simply and easily.
