CRest (Client REST) is a lightweight library that simplifies the integration of third party RESTful services into Java applications. CRest is mainly annotation-driven, allowing the developer to focus on the essential aspects of the integration of a REST service, such as the definition of the Java interface that maps the remote REST methods and the data model the interface will deal with. The rest is achieved by annotating a plain Java interface with the relevant information such as the service end-point, the desired timeouts, URL formats, etc. CRest will handle everything else, including HTTP request generation, auto marshalling of the response, and more.
Funcito is a Java library which simplifies access to your favorite functional programming APIs by wrapping Java methods as the function-type objects defined in those libraries. Rather than creating another functional programming API, Funcito makes it easy to define function-type objects which wrap existing methods. As a result, your code has less noise and clutter of anonymous inner classes, annotations, etc. Your code remains safe for automated refactoring, since there are no String-based reflection or forced naming conventions. The supported frameworks are Google Guava, Jedi, Functional Java, Play! Framework 2, and collections-generic.
