Kicking off Java EE 7 with 2 JSRs: JAX-RS 2.0 / JPA 2.1


The formal work on Java EE 7 has started with the filing of two new JSRs :
JSR 338: Java Persistence 2.1
JSR 339: JAX-RS 2.0: The Java API for RESTful Web Services

This is a follow up to the "It's time to start talking about Java EE 7" entry from last month where themes for Java EE 7, JAX-RS 2.0 and JPA 2.1 were introduced with links to draft documents and conference presentations. Arun also has more details.

Both spec leads Linda DeMichiel (JPA) and Paul Sandoz (a co spec lead on JAX-RS with Roberto Chinnici) have been sharing their thoughts with the community in the past few months at conferences, on mailing lists and blogs. You can now read the JSR proposals and even join the expert group if you feel you have the time and expertise (link to application form is on the respective JSR page).

Both JSRs are now up for voting and the ballot closes on Jan 24, 2011. Now is probably a good time to go back and read this earlier post on voting rules and "How to Read a JSR".

For a broader view of what Java EE 7 is trying to achieve and its timeline, I'd recommend listening to this recent discussion with Roberto Chinnici.
