JCP votes are in, work on JPA 2.1 and JAX-RS 2.0 JSRs can start
By alexismp on Jan 25, 2011
The voting period for the newly proposed JPA 2.1 and JAX-RS 2.0 JSRs (both tentatively scheduled for inclusion in Java EE 7) has now ended and the results are identical for both JSRs - 11 YES votes, 0 NO vote, and two EC members not casting in their vote.
The expert groups will now be forming and each JSR page has a link (JAX-RS 2.0 / JPA) to join them if you are interested. This earlier post has good background on the process (and of course there's news from the source).
