JMS 2, Bean Validation 1.1, JBatch, JSON-P Go Final!

Java EE 7 is almost to the finish line! The first slew of Java EE 7 JSRs have successfully passed their Final Approval Ballots and are now final. JMS 2 (JSR 343), Bean Validation 1.1 (JSR 349), JBatch (JSR 352), and JSON-P (JSR 353) all passed with near unanimous support from the JCP Executive Committee. Please join me in congratulating spec leads Nigel Deakin of Oracle, Emmanuel Bernard of Red Hat, Chris Vignola of IBM, and Jitendra Kotamraju of Oracle on the fruition of all their hard, often thankless work.

We expect more Java EE 7 JSRs to follow suit shortly, so stay tuned. This is a great time to read the final specs and start experimenting with them in the GlassFish 4 builds.
