Java EE 8 - May recap

Here is a short recap covering some recent Java EE 8 updates. In May, JSON-P 1.1 (JSR 374) has passed its Final Approval Ballot. Next to this, CDI 2.0 (JSR 365) has also successfully passed the Final Approval Ballot. Given the importance of CDI across the Java EE platform, this is a key milestone towards Java EE 8!  Make sure to check this CDI 2 – Weld 3 Tour. Last month, JSON-B (JSR 367) has entered in the Final Approval ballot period. In the meantime, you can get Yasson, the...

JSON-P 1.1/Java EE 8 Webinar at Istanbul JUG

The Istanbul JUG has been spinning up it's participation in Java EE 8 through Adopt-a-JSR. They have already taken an interest in JSON-P 1.1, MVC and JMS 2.1 with many more Java EE 8 JSRs on their radar. The Istanbul JUG is the first Turkish JUG to engage with Adopt-a-JSR and Java EE 8. Towards this end the JUG is hosting an online webinar on the proposed changes in JSON-P 1.1 to better involve JUG members. These changes include support for JSON Pointer, JSON Patch and...

A new CDI scope in Java EE 8 ?

At this stage, it is probably safe to say that a new CDI scope will be introduced in Java EE 8 as the MVC Expert Group (JSR 371) is in the process of introducing a new CDI custom scope (@RedirectScoped) to support redirect.  The idea is simple; an MCV controller can decide to redirect a client to a specific URL, to a specific controller method. A typical example would be that an anonymous user hits a page that required to be logged; the controller will then redirect the...

Help Recognize Java Community Process (JCP) Heroes!

An open standard like Java/EE involves a lot of hard work from a lot of different groups of people. The hard work of these people, largely selflessly, benefit countless developers. For specification leads the work in the JCP is often far beyond just a job. I have seen the same to be true of many vendor experts on a specification. Especially admirable are the independents that contribute to specifications largely on their own time as well as Adopt-a-JSR participants. The...
