Okay, thanks - so how do I do that?  I see Chapter 21 (2.3.5) talks about Maven 
but we aren't using maven.  Do  I just need to include the jar or is there 
something in the web.xml that I need to add to include this 'provider?

Also could someone please address my last question:

"Are we using the Response object incorrectly?  What's really the difference 
between returning List<Customer> vs Response with the List<Customer> in the 
generic entity?"

collections in json

Switch to Jackson on the server side.  We will be deprecating Jettison in the 
near future as it is buggy and not being well maintained. 
Jackson has all of what Jettison has and more...

But you are right, Jettison produces different JSON.
