Oracle Introduces New Java Specification Requests to Evolve Java Community Process

To further its commitment to the Java Community Process (JCP), Oracle has submitted the first of two Java Specification Requests (JSRs) to update and revitalize the JCP.

The two new "JCP.next" JSRs, which will go through the same JSR development process that is used for Java technologies, will define the next iteration of the JCP and involve changes to help broaden transparency of Java technology development, improve procedures, increase agility, and encourage new community participation.

JCP.next JSR 1 will produce a new version of the JCP Process document and a formalized Executive Committee Members' Guide and is expected to be completed and approved within about six months. Some changes include:

  • Requiring all Expert Group (EG) operations to be carried out in public forums
  • Increasing the transparency of the recruiting process for Expert Group members to ensure that all applications are fairly considered
  • Exploring ways to enable all JCP members to participate in EC activities through public teleconferences, meetings, e-mail aliases and discussion forums
  • Determining how to disclose TCK testing process results, for example publishing lists of compatible implementations on jcp.org and by removing any barriers to the disclosure of test results

 See more details in the press release.

Great ! Oracle is more open then Sun on core Java initiatives. To bad this type of news has less noise than things like OO.org
