On towards JavaEE 8

Last week I posted a blog entry where I urged people to join the JCP process to further JavaEE. In this blog entry I will list ways you can participate with a specification that could be part of the next JavaEE release (note the table below lists the specifications that were part of JavaEE 7).

Spec Issue tracker
JavaEE https://java.net/jira/browse/JAVAEE_SPEC
EJB https://java.net/jira/browse/EJB_SPEC
JPA https://java.net/jira/browse/JPA_SPEC
JSF https://java.net/jira/browse/JAVASERVERFACES_SPEC_PUBLIC
JSON-P https://java.net/jira/browse/JSON_PROCESSING_SPEC
WebSocket https://java.net/jira/browse/WEBSOCKET_SPEC
EL https://java.net/jira/browse/EL_SPEC
Servlet https://java.net/jira/browse/SERVLET_SPEC
JAX-RS https://java.net/jira/browse/JAX_RS_SPEC
JMS https://java.net/jira/browse/JMS_SPEC
Concurrency https://java.net/jira/browse/CONCURRENCY_EE_SPEC
CDI https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI
JCache https://github.com/jsr107/jsr107spec/issues
Bean Validation https://hibernate.atlassian.net/browse/BVAL
Batch https://java.net/bugzilla/buglist.cgi?product=jbatch

Pick the area you are interested in and start participating. You can join the mailing list and start a discussion about a feature, file a specification issue on the bug trackers or read up on the website.

Remember participation starts with you, after all it is the Java Community Process ;)
