The end of April and the first part of May brought more JSR updates following the Java 8 launch (including the Final Release of JSR 360 & JSR 361 as part of Java 8)! This week the JCP Executive Committee (EC) meets in London for the second Face-to-Face (F2F) meeting of 2014, hosted by EC Member, Goldman Sachs (thank you!).
We will discuss many interesting topics, including JCP.Next Working Group sessions (JSR 364 & JSR 358), JCP membership, some JSR presentations by JSR 343 Spec Lead, Nigel Deakin, and JSR 359 Spec Lead, Binod PG. We will also have a presentation on GS Collections by Donald Raab and a Java EE use case by Mohamed Tamen. The meeting summary and materials will be posted soon.
The next EC Meeting, to be held on 10 June, will be a public meeting. This meeting is open to anyone interested in attending-details will be published on this blog in early June.
