Patrick Curran Session-Keynote at DOAG 2012

Patrick Curran, Chair of the  Java Community Process (JCP) and Director of the JCP Program Management Office, will be speaking this week at the DOAG 2012 event in Nuremberg Germany.

Keynote Java: Restructuring the Java Community Process
November, 22nd | 09:00-09:45 am

The Java Community Process (JCP) plays a critical role in the evolution of Java.  This keynote will explain how the JCP is organized and how interested members of the Java community - commercial organizations, non-profits, Java user-groups, and individual developers - work together to advance the Java language and platforms. It will then discuss recent and upcoming changes to the JCP's structure and operating processes, and will explain how these changes ('JCP.next') will make the organization more efficient and will ensure that its work is carried out in a more open and more transparent manner.

JCP 2.9 & Transparency Spec Lead Call material is available

The JCP 2.9 & Transparency Spec Lead Call materials and recording from 9 November are now available on the JCP.org multimedia page.  Learn about changes introduced with JCP 2.9, effective Tuesday, 13 November, and a review of the JCP.Next reform efforts. Plus, a progress report on JCP 2.8, specifically around the areas of transparency, participation and agility, as well as suggestions for how you can get more involved in supporting these efforts with the current JCP program JSRs. 

Friday Nov 09, 2012

Welcome to the newly merged JCP EC!

As part of the JCP.Next effort, the second JSR as part of the JCP program reforms, JSR 355, Executive Committee (EC) Merge, will take effect on Tuesday as JCP 2.9. The first in the effort was JSR 348, which took effect as JCP 2.8 in October 2011. EC members guide the evolution of the Java technologies by approving and voting on all technology proposals (Java Specification Requests, or JSRs). They are also responsible for defining the JCP's rules of governance and the legal agreement between members and the organization. They provide guidance to the Program Management Office (PMO) and they represent the interests of the JCP to the broader community.

Starting on Tuesday, 13 November, JCP 2.9 is in effect, and the EC is merged from two ECs -- one representing Java SE/EE and one representing Java ME -- to one merged EC. IBM and Oracle each gave up one of their two seats (one per EC) and the terms expired for four members who did not run for re-election: AT&T, Deutsch Telekom, Siemens and Vodafone. All four remain JCP members. In addition, the seat occupied by RIM was forfeited due to lack of participation in October 2012. The JCP values the organizations and representatives for their contribution to the JCP EC, and looks forward to their continued participation in the JCP Program. The complete listing of the EC, 24 members total at the moment, is now available.

We asked the two newcomers to the EC, Cinterion and CloudBees, and the re-elected London Java Community, to comment on their plans for their term in the EC. Read about their plans in the article published on JCP.org, "JCP 2.9 with a Merged EC Takes Effect 13 November". Also, plan to attend the public (open to all community members) EC Meeting planned for 20 November at 15:00 PST.  Details will be posted here and on the JCP.org home page next week.

Meet the Spec Leads & Active JSRs

For your Monday reading pleasure, the JCP has published Spec Lead Profiles of In Progress/Active JSRs--there are 35 of these Spec Leads!  Find out more about these dedicated community leaders.  In preparing these profiles, the PMO also asked Specification Leads to tell about their experiences  as Spec Leads.  There were many themes that emerged around transparency, openness, agility and participation.  This led to a related article for those interested in learning about the experience of participating in the development of a Java Specification through the JCP program, see: "Active Specification Leads Offer Best Practices and Tips for Success".

In Progress/Active JSRs were also reported on in the PMO Presentation during the last JCP EC Face-to-Face meeting in September 2012.  

Now is a good time to start thinking about nominations for Star Spec Leads.  Nominations for 2012 are now open.  Anyone can submit a nomination for Star Spec Lead; however, we ask that you nominate an active JSR Spec Lead, operating a JSR under JCP program version 2.8 (introduced October 2011) or above.  Nominations close 31 December 2012.

JSR Updates and Inactive JSRs

 The following Java EE JSRs have made progress in the JCP program this week:

JSR 342, Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 7 (Java EE 7) Specification, has posted an Early Draft 2 Review.  This review closes 30 November.

JSR 338, Java Persistence 2.1, has posted an Early Draft 2 Review.  This review closes 30 November.

 JSR 346, Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java, EE 1.1, has posted a Public Review.  This review closes 3 December.

 JSR 352, Batch Applications for the Java Platform, has posted a Public Review.  This review closes 3 December.

 Also see the java.net schedule update for Java EE 7.

Inactive JSRs: In 2008, we initiated an effort to identify JSRs that had not continued to make progress in the JCP program, with the goal of increasing agility and also transparency.  We have reported on this topic since that time at JCP Executive Committee Meetings. The term 'Inactive JSRs' was introduced, and a process was developed with the guidance of the EC to reduce the number of Inactive JSRs  (reduced from over 60 to 2 JSRs) through either moving to the next JSR stage or being Withdrawn or declared Dormant.  This process has been formalized in JCP 2.8 and above, with the introduction of JSR deadlines.  The JSRs which were put to a Dormancy Ballot in September 2012  have been approved by the EC and are now declared Dormant.  You can view the results of the JSR Voting on JCP.org.  The latest Inactive JSRs report is available as part of the September 2012 JCP EC Face-to-Face Meeting Materials.
