Welcome to the December 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. This time around I'll cover the recent elections for the Executive Committees and four new J2ME-related JSRs. The Envelope Please! During October and November the annual elections for the two Executive Committees take place. Each year the elections are managed by PriceWaterhouseCoopers to ensure an impartial execution of the proceedings. In October the JCP membership ratified the nominations that Sun had put forward, resulting in the appointments of Apache, Borland, and Nortel to the SE/EE EC, and NTT DoCoMo, RIM, and Samsung to the ME EC. The main criteria that Sun uses in selecting JCP members for nomination are concentrated on maintaining (and sometimes impro... (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)

JSR Watch: JCP Recognizes the Best Member, Spec Leads, and Specifications

Last month at the 2005 JavaOne Conference, members of the Java Community Process (JCP) program got together with the other Java communities for our traditional annual Java Communities in Action event. We mixed, mingled, and celebrated our ongoing efforts to extend Java technology on all fronts. On behalf of the JCP Executive Committees I handed out awards for JCP program achievements over the past year. The Executive Committees (ECs) had selected the honorees, which were easier to pick out since last year's migration to JCP version 2.6 encouraged the Expert Groups to work more tr... (more)

From Within the Java Community Process Program

Welcome to the July edition of JSR Watch! Each month this column provides information about the JCP program: newly submitted JSRs, new draft specs, Java APIs that were finalized, and other news from the JCP program. This month's column discusses a set of new J2EE technology JSRs, and a scripting JSR, but I'll start off with the J2ME environment. Two J2ME JSRs Are Nearly Final JSR 179, Location API for J2ME technology, specifies how to write mobile location-based applications for devices with limited resources, producing information to an application about the device's physical loc...

From Within the Java Community Process Program

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 ... (more)
