Welcome to the August edition of the JCP column! This month I'll cover a few J2ME-related JSRs and two new JSRs in the J2SE/J2EE environment, but first out of the block is the program office's own JSR, number 215. Further Evolving Rules of the Community JSR 215 aims to deliver several changes to the rules of the JCP to make the process more open and transparent, both to members and to the general public. These changes should make it easier to determine how a JSR is doing and what the expert group is working on. The plan is to make all draft reviews publicly visible, including the Community Review. The JSR may also introduce the spec lead's choice to have its JSR assigned to both ECs instead of the ME EC or the SE/EE EC. And finally, JSR 215 outlines default requirements for TCKs at the Final Approval Ballot. If all goes well from the time of my writing, JSR 215 shoul... (more)

JSR 913 modified the JSR ballot voting rules, JSRs 99 and 171 led to JCP 2.5, and JSR 215 is creating JCP 2.6. This JSR just completed the Community Review and ballot. The Program Office t... (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)

From Within the Java Community Process Program

Welcome to the February edition of the JCP program column. Each month you can read about the Java Community Process program: newly submitted JSRs, new draft specs, Java APIs that were finalized, and other news from the JCP. JCP members have been busy since my last column, submitting over six new JSRs! This time around I'll cover some new JSRs recently submitted in the Web services area, and some JSRs from the telecommunications community and from the Micro Edition folks. Web Tier In the past month or so four new JSRs have been submitted to the JCP program that focus on Java tech... (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)
