What is the SCA and Why we have one... -- And Signature Drive at JavaOne

Guest Author


One of the responsibilities of the lead of a
Expert Group is to deliver a Specification, a TCK and a Reference Implementation,
which may be just proof-of-concept or production-quality implementations like
As the lead for the Java EE 5 Platform Sun needs to deliver the RI
and to do that we require contributors to Project GlassFish to sign
>Contribution Agreement that gives Sun shared copyright on your bug
fixes, patches, and improvements.

The SCA can be signed in different ways; we usually get them as scanned images
but we are taking advantage of JavaOne to do a signature drive.
If you are attending JavaOne we encourage you to drop by booth 706
or by our
Community Meeting and sign it;
I believe we have appreciation shirts :-)

BTW, I believe this arrangement is quite similar to what Apache asks nowadays from committers.
