Hi all,

*Concurrency Utilities for Java EE (JSR 236) : It would be the perfect spec
to have @Startup, @Schedule, @Asynchronous, @Pooled annotations. Any plans
on that ? *
*> We are still evaluating whether there will be a new JSR/MR.*

I think that is one of my biggest concern. I don't know what is the middle
to long time "vision" of Java EE, but I think that what happened with
@Transactional in JTA should be replicated : @TransactionalAttribute in EJB
was fine, but it makes more sense to have this concern going back to JTA.
@Asynchronous, @Startup, @Schedule should "leave" the EJB spec to go back
where it belongs. @Pooled would also make sense. Plus, if we want to
embrace Java SE 8, there are new asynchronous APIs that Java EE should
leverage, and again, going to the Concurrency spec would make sense.

What could we do to work on the process of evaluating if Concurrency should
be updated or not ?
