Improved JCP Process... Building on Best Practices from JDOM to JAX-RS

Guest Author


In a recursive manner, the JCP Process
(latest version is
is used to change the JCP process.
The latest set of changes are a relatively small Maintenance Release on the original
JSR 215.
Check the
Formal ChangeLog
or see this
Summary by Heather.

The changes are emphasizing transparency and reflect best practices followed by
different EGs through the years.
IIRC, the first EG that followed transparency at this level was
JDOM (JSR-102), led by Jason Hunter.
In more recent times,
I think that Paul and Marc have done an excellent job with
JAX-RS (JSR-311).
I hope the improved rules will encourage many more good examples.
