JSR 310, Date & Time API and 335, Lambda Expressions for the Java Programming Language were the most popular Java 8 JSRs adopted by members of the Java Community. JSR 310 was adopted by Guadalajara JUG, Jozi JUG, London Java Community and SouJava. JSR 335 was adopted by Jozi JUG, London Java Community, and SouJava.
There is also a large group of developers participating in OpenJDK through the Adopt OpenJDK program.
The 'Test Java 8 program' is another project initiated by the London Java Community, as part of the Adopt-a-JSR program. The aim is for various individuals from JUGs to help out with Testing Java 8 on several OSS projects before the launch of Java 8.
With the Java 8 launch happening next week, this is a great time to join in the activities! We are organizing activities at the JavaLand Conference in Germany and other locations around the world.
