How to use Jersey version from previous releases in WLS 12c (Doc ID 1626341.1)

Last updated on JUNE 09, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.1.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Default version of Jersey that the WLS 12.1.1 version onwards provides is Jersey 1.9.x.

In earlier Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 (10.3.x) environment Jersey version which was supported is Jersey 1.1.5.x.

So sometimes we need to upgrade a RESTful Web service that was built in the Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 (10.3.x) environment to run in the Oracle WebLogic Server 12c Release 1 (12.1.x) environment. For detailed steps, see "Upgrading a 10.3.x RESTful Web Service (JAX-RS) to 12.1.x" in Upgrade Guide for Oracle WebLogic Server from below link:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24329_01/web.1211/e24497/upgrade_ws.htm#WLUPG331

Now sometimes customer still want to use the Jersey version from previous releases and they don't want to upgrade their RESTful Web service to use the newer Jersey version.

This documents helps in achieving this requirement of not using the default version of Jersey 1.9.x that the server provides in WLS 12.1.1.
