A number of Maven plugins that CXF JAX-RS users could try for generating the initial code they could build upon for creating working applications was close to zero not too long ago, in fact it was actually 0.
Then we added a wadl2java plugin so the numbers started to look better :-).
And now starting from CXF 2.5.1 an archetype plugin for creating Spring-based JAX-RS applications is also available, all thanks to Benson.
Please see this page for more information.
The generated project will get the integration tests running too, so having a simple end-to-end application created and tested in less than a minute is really cool.
