Fellow Java EE Experts,

We've now completed a fairly lengthy process of surveying the
community, evaluating the input we've received, and assessing our own
goals for the next release of the Java EE Platform.

The current draft of the JSR for the Java EE 8 Platform that we plan
to submit to the JCP is attached below. Those of you who have been
tracking our work with our Java EE 8 community survey will likely find
this very consistent with the feedback that we received.

We would like to know if your company would like to be listed as a
supporter of this JSR when we submit it to the JCP. For those of you
who are individual members of this expert group, please let me know if
you would like to be listed as an individual supporting the JSR.

Our plan is to submit this JSR this summer (in advance of the JavaOne
timeframe), so please let me know before the end of June if you wish
to be listed as a supporter.

Please also feel free to send us any suggestions you might have with
regard to the content of the JSR. We may not be able to accommodate
more than minor comments before submission of the JSR. However, the
the final content of Java EE 8 will of course be discussed and decided
as part of the normal Expert Group processes once the new group is

Again, regardless of whether or not you have comments, please let me
know if you'd like to be listed as a supporter of this JSR.
