This program will realise the following benefits:
- Standards get earlier feedback, leading to more developer friendly APIs
- Standards get 'end user/developer' expert input
- Standards get developed faster as we can help with some of the heavy lifting of building Reference Implementations (RI) and Technical Compatibility Kits (TCK)
- JUGs can help with the management of the open source project that springs up around a JSR (managing mailing lists, triaging issues etc)
The benefits to JUGs and individual members adopting a JSR are hopefully obvious. It looks great on the CV, gives you new technical and community skills and much more!
With JSR-348 and JSR-355 bringing openness and transparency to the way in which JSRs are run, this is a great opportunity for all of us to help the Java ecosystem thrive.
