Welcome to the November edition of the JCP column! Each month you can read about the Java Community Process: newly submitted JSRs, new draft specs, Java APIs that were finalized, and other news from the JCP. For November I'll be covering a handful of new JSRs, several final JSRs including one rather longrunning one that has now reached the finish line, a plug for ApacheCon, and a report on the first phase of this year's EC elections. New JSRs Since the writing of last month's column, four new JSRs were submitted by JCP members. The first new JSR of this year was number 203, and the JSR count is now at 232; thus the community keeps running like clockwork and is on schedule to again hit the average of 40 to 45 new JSRs per year. This month Siemens has submitted two JSRs. JSR 229, Payment API for J2ME environment, will be developing an API to initiate payment transaction... (more)

From Within the Java Community Process Program

Welcome to the January edition of the JCP column. In the time-honored New Year's tradition of offering a perspective of the past year, I have written a different column on the JCP than in other months. Driven partly by the fifth anniversary milestone and partly by some interesting trends happening around us, I'm taking this opportunity to chat with you about this past year and about what may lie ahead for the Java community in 2004. A Look Back To start with the technology side of things: 2003 saw the J2EE 1.4 JSRs go final. The Executive Committee voted unanimously in favor, thus... (more)

JSR Update: A Web Services and XML Special Round-Up

If you're reading this at the Web Services Edge 2005 East Conference, you're probably having a great time. If, on the other hand, it's before February 15th, you might still have time to get to Boston and attend. For anyone interested in Web services or XML, this conference will be big. Whether you're at the conference or not, I want to highlight several of the newest JCP Program Java Specification Requests (JSRs) that promise to improve Web ser-vices development and deployment. Of the 20 or so JSRs that offer benefits for Web services, I've described what's happening on several th... (more)

2006 JavaOne JSR Itineraries

It's JavaOne show time again. The Java Community Process (JCP) Program and its members have a lot to share from the latest Java specification (JSR) accomplishments showcased in a diversity of forms at the conference, including technical sessions (TS), birds-of-a-feather meetings (BOF), industry panels, training sessions, round tables, and community events. Let me give you a mini tour of some of the JSRs on the conference agenda this year. I'll start with the Technical General Session featuring Graham Hamilton and Bill Shannon, Sun Microsystems. Their talk will present key direct... (more)
