Will future versions of Spring Data - REST implement JAX-RS?
The description of the Spring Data-REST project implies that future versions will steer away from using the Spring MVC framework.
-"Future implementations will allow you to export your repositories in non-Servlet HTTP environments using high-throughput non-blocking IO, and will provide enhanced HTML5 capabilities."
Does this mean it will be rewritten to the JAX-RS specification?

The long-term goal still remains to adapt Spring Data REST to high-throughput containers (Netty, Grizzly, et al) for deployment to non-servlet environments. The code does not actually rely on servlet components for the core functionality, so a JAX-RS component could conceivably be created that simply called the methods on the RepositoryRestController. But AFAIK there are no plans to replace Spring MVC with JAX-RS.
