RESTX is a full lightweight disrupting stack, which includes Swagger-like ui & considers REST specs tests as docs.

It shares similarities with modern frameworks like Play! like hot compile and a very productive experience, but focused on REST and pure Java.

It's licensed under the very commercial friendly Apache License 2, and is actively maintained by a community of developers.

You can get more details from the web site at http://restx.io/

Here you will find the build instructions if you want to build RESTX yourself, and why not contribute to the project.
