Java EE 7 Platform Completes the JCP Final Approval Ballot

I'm happy to announce that the Java EE 7 Platform and Web Profile JSR
has just passed the JCP Executive Committee Final Approval Ballot,
with the support of an overwhelming majority of the committee members.
This completes the JCP approval process for all of the JSRs under the
Java EE 7 umbrella.

This Java EE 7 Platform release — the first under Oracle's
stewardship — comprises the following 14 JSRs and 9 Maintenance
Releases (MRs), including the JSRs led by our partners in this effort,
Red Hat (CDI and Bean Validation) and IBM (Batch). Of these JSRs, the
WebSocket, JSON, Concurrency, and Batch JSRs are new to the Java EE
Platform with this release.

We'd like to thank all of the community members who have contributed
to this process — in particular the members of our Expert Groups,
members of our JSR projects on java.net (operating in the open under the JCP
transparency program),
members of the JUGs participating in the
Adopt-a-JSR program, and
participants in
our outreach surveys.

Stay tuned for our Java EE 7 GlassFish Reference Implementation
release, coming shortly within the next couple of weeks.
