      Description

      When writing a real web application the client is likely going to be written in JavaScript in a web-browser and if the server uses CXF then it's in Java. I think it's the case for a vast majority of CXF users.

      1) QUESTION: Can we write a synchronous web service using CXF JAX-RS (REST) in Java and invoke it from JavaScript? Are there any features that are not supported by JavaScript?

      2) QUESTION: Can we write an asynchronous web service using CXF JAX-RS (REST) in Java and invoke it from JavaScript? Are there any features that are not supported by JavaScript?

      I think many of us would appreciate a chapter in the documentation that talks about scenarios when using different languages as clients, JavaScript is one, but the client could as well be in Python, Ruby, Perl. You should recommend frameworks from other languages that have been tested to work with CXF. Please, cover both the synchronous and asynchronous case. A compatibility table should be given to out all client frameworks that have been tested to work with CXF.
