The first JCP Executive Committee public meeting of 2012 took place on Tuesday, June 26. The meeting was open to any Java developer who wanted to attend, via Oracle's international phone network and the JCP's Webex account. I called in. I also tried the Webex option, but couldn't fully connect (I think due to my own system, which isn't yet fully operable after a recent disk crash).
Most of the...

I was surprised to read the JCP Program Office's recent announcement that AT&T, Samsung, and SK Telecom have all lost their Executive Committee (EC) voting rights. The reason? Well, the JCP EC meeting held earlier this month was the second held under the new JCP 2.8 EC Standing Rules. Under those rules, if an Executive Committee member misses two consecutive meetings, they lose their voting...

I have three talks scheduled at the beginning of this year.
The first one at FOSDEM in the Free Java Devroom is titled Java Lambdas for Hackers. It will explore the details of what can be the implementation of the lambda in Java 8
The agenda of the Free Java sessions this year is great, a kind of perfect mix between old friends and newcomers.

After the Monday keynote at JavaOne 2011, I attended a panel session titled "JCP and the Developer Community." I noted a simple statistic at the time, and this still signifies for me how the relationship of the JCP to the broader Java community is changing. The stat? The first 19 minutes of the one-hour session consisted of a brief presentation by JCP Chair Patrick Curran and introductory...

JSON JSR(pre JCP filed draft)
As announced earlier, Oracle wants to include a Java API for JSON in the Java EE platform. I have circulated the Java API for JSON JSR draft internally in Oracle. If you have any feedback, let me know. I will also reach out to few people(who worked on Java implementations for JSON) to support this JSR. The planned scope for this API is:

I have a Google Alert that searches for "JUG Java" -- it works pretty well. A few days ago, it pointed me to the Adopt-a-JSR presentation that's now available on Java.net in the Java User Groups JUG Collateral Pack 1_ 2012 folder. The 17-slide presentation is authored by Martijn Verburg and James Gough of the London Java Community ("with lots of extra valuable input" from SouJava).

This week, Oracle officially nominated SouJava for an Executive Commitee seat on the Java Community Process (JCP), to each I have been indicated as the group's representative. Since then, I have received many e-mails, and started writing this lines several times but couldn't get too far... There is no simple messaging in regards to the JCP those days, and to even start, it means touching...

In my previous blog post, I have asked to many of you this question: "What JSF should become?". And since then, I was quite silent. And the reason behind it is that I was working on a concrete implementation of this vision and my vision is to create a JSF application with a set of UI components that can render themselves on the client side and in this way :
