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the number of Inactive JSRs  (reduced from over 60 to 2 JSRs) through either moving to the next JSR stage or being Withdrawn or declared Dormant.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.
