Apache Wink is an open source framework that enables development and consumption of REST style web services. It is composed of a Server module and a Client module. The Server module is an implementation of the JAX-RS (JSR-311) specification along with additional features to facilitate the development of RESTful Web services. The Client module is a Java based framework that provides functionality for communicating with RESTful Web services.



The project was initiated back in 2007 as an HP internal REST SDK called Symphony. At the beginning of 2009 HP and IBM joined forces to deliver the Apache Wink project [1], HP contributed the SDK and IBM contributed a lot of integration tests.

Today the Apache Wink is part of the Apache Incubator project.
