Jump Start for using java.net to host your EG

Posted by edburns on June 15, 2005 at 2:11 PM PDT

In case you need it, here's a jumpstart on using java.net for your JSR.

1. get a java.net id (duh)

2. Create a project called something like

NAME-spec-public

in the JSR community. We try to keep all
the java.net projects that correspond to JSRs in that project. For
NAME, I recommend jsf-metadata. The -spec-public part is a practice
we've been following thus far. Use this project's issue tracker as
your main issue tracker.

3. Once your project is approved, create a private sub-project, called

NAME-spec-eg

This will hold the CVS repository and any other artifacts you don't
want to share with the general public, as per JCP guidelines. We
generally don't use the issue tracker on the private sub-project.

4. I recommend against using the java.net mailing lists for EG
correspondence. Their search engine is sucky compared to the one you
get by using the jcp.org mailing list.

5. Make all your EG members get java.net ids, and add them as members to
NAME-spec-eg.

Generally, I hate attachments so I like to use the documents and files
section of the NAME-spec-eg project as much as possible, sending
URLs around instead.
