Danny,

In Java EE 6, javax.servlet.annotation and javax.xml.bind.annotation are the only two packaged that have annotations separated out. All other technologies (JAX-RS, CDI, EJB, JAX-WS, etc) have them in the same packages. It makes sense to flatten out javax.websocket.annotations to javax.websocket package.

As Mark mentioned, splitting the APIs in two packages does create cyclic dependency. OTOH, do you expect only APIs in the client package to be bundled for rich client applications ? IMHO the names are intuitive and its only 5 classes. I'd rather keep a flat structure with everything in javax.websocket.* package.

Thanks,
Arun

This is what the API would look like in this (final?) package structure:-

javax.websocket.server.*
- DefaultServerEndpointConfiguration
- ServerEndpointConfiguration
- ServerContainer
- WebSocketEndpoint
- WebSocketPathParam

javax.websocket.*
-<everything else>

Let me know if anyone sees any issues with this arrangement.
One very minor nit is that it creates a circular dependency between the
two packages. It could be broken by having separate ContainerProviders
for client and server. I'm on the fence as to whether this is worth doing.
