    Java EE 7 in general

    • 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

     

    Java in General

     

    JSR 310 (Date and Time)

    • 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.

     

    JSR 335 (Lambdas)

    • 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.

     

    JSR 348, 355, 358 and 364 (JCP.next)

    • The requirements from the Adopt a JSR programme in order to allow developers to participate helped shape the new openness and transparency rules.
