- Several projects have been donated to GitHub in which users can run test applications against new specifications. This has helped:
- Fix bugs and tweak APIs to be more developer friendly
- Raised awareness of Java EE 7
- Some projects are part of the RI sample kit
- There have been a multitude of Java EE 7 related presentations made at JUG meetings and major conferences
- See the Adopt OpenJDK programme.
- A couple of workshops / hack sessions have been run for JSR-310 - Feedback from these sessions prompted bug fixes as well as API changes to make the new Date and Time API easier to use.
- Adopt a JSR members have been involved in the full design / code / test lifecycle of JSR-310 helping ensure it makes it in time for Java 8.
- Multiple talks have been given to prepare developers for Lambdas at JUG meetings and major conferences
- Several workshops / hack sessions have been run for JSR-335 (Lambdas) - Feedback from the labs prompted bug fixes as well as API changes to make Lambdas and Collections easier to use.
- This includes a hack day on other 3rd party collections libraries (Goldman Sachs, Guava, Trove) to get a fresh perspective
- A Hands on Tutorial for developers learning about Lambdas.
- The requirements from the Adopt a JSR programme in order to allow developers to participate helped shape the new openness and transparency rules.
