In this article we will see some of the differences between Jersey 1.x and Jersey 2.x . here I am going to explain what is the main web.xml configuration change in Jersey 1.x and Jersey 2.x frameworks .


In Jersey 1.x Framework we configure com.sun.jersey.spi.container.servlet.ServletContainer as servlet in web.xml , where as in  Jersey 2.0 on wards we are using org.glassfish.jersey.servlet.ServletContainer  to configure in web.xml.

And also <init-param> configurations changed in both Jersey 1.x and Jersey 2.x frameworks , see the below sample web.xml configurations for both versions.
