Concurrency Utilities for Java EE 6: JSR 236 Rebooting

JSR 166 added support for concurrency utilities in the Java platform. The JSR 236's, a.k.a Concurrency Utilities for Java EE, goal was to extend that support to the Java EE platform by adding asynchronous abilities to different application components. The EG was however stagnant since Dec 2003.

Its coming back to life with the co-spec lead Anthony Lai's message to the JSR 236 EG (archived here).

Concurrent Lanes

The JSR will be operating under JCP 2.8's transparency rules and can be tracked at concurrency-spec.java.net. All the mailing lists are archived here. The final release is expected in Q1 2013 and the APIs will live in the javax.enterprise.concurrent package.

Please submit your nomination if you would like to join this EG.
