JCP EC Meeting and IOUC last week

Last week was a busy week for the JCP program!  Along with many JSR updates and the Adopt-a-JSR meeting blogged about earlier this week, the JCP participated in the IOUC in Redwood Shores, held the first EC face to face meeting of 2013 in Santa Clara, and hosted a JCP dinner in Santa Clara for the JUG leaders attending the IOUC and JCP EC Members at The Fish Market.

The JCP session slides --with Patrick Curran, Heather VanCura, Bruno Souza and Ben Evans-- at the IOUC are available.  The agenda, meeting materials and minutes will be published from the January EC Meeting will be published on JCP.org soon (the December 2012 EC materials are available now).  We had several Spec Lead presentations at the EC Meeting in January--JSR status updates (15 minutes each) from JSR 339: JAX-RS 2.0: The Java API for RESTful Web Services (Santiago Pericas-Geertsen), JSR 352: Batch Applications for the Java Platform (Chris Vignola), JSR 354: Money and Currency API (Susanne Cech, Werner Keil); and three Spec Lead presentations (~1 hour each) from JSR 342: Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 7 (Java EE 7) Specification (Linda DeMichiel), JSR 236: Concurrency Utilities for Java EE (Anthony Lai), and JSR 335: Lambda Expressions for the Java Programming Language (Brian Goetz).   The agenda also included the annual year end report and summary, and a JSR 358 A major revision to the Java Community Process, Expert Group discussion.  Stay tuned for the full agenda, minutes and materials.

Adopt-a-JSR Transparency Project Needs You!

We are introducing a Transparency sub-project as part of the Adopt-a-JSR program. As discussed in the entry earlier this week, many JUGs are joining and contributing to the Adopt-a-JSR program, with new JUGs coming on board recently, such as JUG Mbale in Africa adopting JSR 353.  There are 20 JUGs adopting 23 JSRs (out of 29 total Active JSRs).  As we discussed in the online meeting we held last week, we encourage JUGs to update the wiki page to help with coordination and collaboration between the JUGs; you can update the wiki page and communicate on twitter #adoptajsr to start.

We also need JUGs or individuals to complete surveys that are transparency check ups on Active JSRs. This will provide qualitative data to the community, Spec Leads and Program Office on the compliance to JCP 2.8/2.9 transparency and participation requirements.  Each Active JSR has a transparency survey and corresponding Transparency project on java.net.  If you are adopting a JSR, this is a great starting point to gather and report on the transparency and participation of the JSR. If you are thinking about adopting a JSR or are just interested in observing and following the JSR, this is a helpful way to start engaging with the JSR and the Expert Group.  Your input will go into the Adopt-a-JSR Transparency sub-project with a matrix of results for each JSR actively operating under JCP 2.8/2.9. 

  • JUGs participating in Adopt-a-JSR: Campinas JUG (Brazil), ceJUG (Brazil), GOJava (Brazil), SouJava (Brazil), Peru JUG, SV JUG (USA), Houston JUG (USA), Toronto JUG (Canada), London Java Community (UK),  BeJUG (Belgium), Madrid JUG (Spain),  JUG Cologne (Germany), Indonesia JUG, Hyderabad JUG (India), JUG Chennai (India), Morocco JUG, Mbale (Uganda), Faso JUG (Africa), Jozi JUG (South Africa). 
  • JSRs 'adopted': 107, 299, 308, 310, 321, 331, 335, 338, 339, 342, 343, 344, 345, 346, 347, 348, 349, 352, 353, 354, 355, 356, 358.  

Your participation in the transparency check ups by completing the surveys for active JSRs will help us do a better job of determining the transparency and participation practices.
