Nigel Deakin has been in touch with an update on the progress of Java Message Service (JMS) 2.0, which as JSR 343 is one of several new JSRs that will form part of Java EE 7. Nigel's first task as spec lead is to set up the expert group, so he would like to invite experienced and active practitioners in JMS, who can allocate enough time to contribute to this specification, to apply to join the expert group. Since JMS is a mature technology he's particularly keen to make sure that all the principal JMS 1.1 implementations are represented.
Nigel also tells me that he's keen that JMS 2.0 be developed as transparently as possible. There'll be a public email list that interested observers can use to contribute and discuss ideas. The expert group discussions will also be made public as much as possible. There'll also be a JIRA issue tracker which anyone can use to submit proposals. To find out how to get involved, visit the new JMS 2.0 website: jms-spec.java.net.
