I have created a CustomRestAuthenticator because for the moment I do not want authentication.


import org.restlet.Request;

public class CustomRestAuthenticator implements RestAuthenticator {

   public boolean requestRequiresAuthentication(Request request) {
       return false;

   public boolean isRequestAuthorized(Request request) {
       return false;


public class NoAuthenticationActivitiRestServicesApplication extends ActivitiRestServicesApplication {
   public NoAuthenticationActivitiRestServicesApplication() {
      this.setRestAuthenticator(new CustomRestAuthenticator());

   public String authenticate(Request request, Response response) {
      if (!request.getClientInfo().isAuthenticated()) {
         authenticator.challenge(response, false);
         return null;
      return "KERMIT!";

If I do not override the method authenticate throws a nullpointerexception.
