JCP News

This year marks the 15 years of the Java Community Process! This is probably a good occasion to start a JCP update on The Aquarium. So from now on, we will summarize, on a regular basis, the JCP news around Java on the server and obviously on the JCP itself too.

So welcome to the first installement of this regular JCP update...

Two of the APIs introduced in Java EE 7 are currently going through the Maintenance Review process:

  • Java API for WebSocket (JSR356) posted a Maintenance Review. The maintenance draft is open for review and comments until July 24. Make sure to check this draft and raise any comments you might have.
  • Batch Applications for the Java Platform (JSR 352) passed the Maintenance Review ballot with 19 yes votes. The Specification Lead should post a Maintenance Release soon.

SIP Servlet 2.0 (JSR 359) is an API that is not part of the Java EE platform but it is nevertheless important as this API leverages some Java EE technologies to a great extent. SIP Servlet 2.0 has passed the Public Review ballot last month. The previous version of the SIP Servlet API was still based on Java EE 5! The scope of this update is to realign the specification with Java EE to let it uses some of the new features provided by the platform such as Servlet 3.x, CDI, etc. This update will also track the recent evolutions of the Telco standards relevant to the SIP space.


You can find here the recording and minutes of the June JCP public Executive Committee meeting and teleconference. You can also find the materials (presentations, minutes) of the last face-to-face JCP Executive Committee meeting that was held in London in May.

Finally, make sure to cast your vote in the different categories (JCP Member/Participant Of The Year, Most Significant JSR, Outstanding Spec Lead, Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant) for the 2014 JCP Annual Awards!
