Adopt a JSR Program

Version 7



         This program is intended to encourage JUG members, individuals and other organizations to get involved in Java Specification Requests (JSRs). This means more grass roots, developer level participation in existing and emerging Java standards. JSRs cover all aspects of the Java ecosystem such as the new Date and Time API that came into Java 8, the existing JavaEE 7 APIS and the upcoming JavaEE 8 APIs for the cloud and more!  For example:

    1. Spring & Java EE Developers : Servlet 4.0 coming out for support for HTTP 2. JAX-RS 2.1 with support for Server-Sent Events (SSE) from HTML 5. Maintenance release Java API for WebSocket and much more
    2. Clojure, Scala Developers and Java SE developers: Modularised Java (Jigsaw), Collection Literals and more!

         We try to have a Laser-like Focus  on what we do!


    Also see Benefits of joining the program.
