Way to Go! JCP approves final specs for Java EE 5, EJB 3.0, Java Persistence API, and more...

The JCP has approved the final versions of the Java EE 5 Platform (results), Enterprise Java Beans 3.0 and Java Persistence API (results), JSP 2.1 (results), and JSF 1.2 (results). Check the voting records: everybody voted, and everybody voted YES on all (but for one abstention vote on JSF 1.2); this shows wide support for the new specs.

Previously the JCP had approved the WS specifications. Now just waiting for the TCK and RI (GlassFish) to complete.

...or it shows that JavaOne is about to hit town and it would look silly not to have them approved. :-)

Well, there are two parts. One is getting things done by JavaOne. That is true, J1 is an important milestone in the release cycle for the Java Community; similar in a sense to August in Europe :-). But what is less common is to have unanimous YES votes. You usually can count on at least some voters to forget to vote! :-)
