Both the JSON-B and MVC JSRs have received strong support in the
community and have been making good progress. These expert groups
have now produced EDR specifications, and we expect to complete both
JSRs within the Java EE 8 time frame.

JSON-B provides the missing link in our support for JSON technology in
the Platform, and its standardization draws upon years of JSON binding
experience in the industry.

MVC, as an action-based MVC framework, provides a needed complement to
JSF, and is another technology for which related implementations have
well proven their usefulness for developers.

We believe that both of these JSRs obviously add significant value to
the Java EE Platform, and that they should therefore be included as
required technologies in the Java EE 8 Platform.

Further, since the Web Profile includes both JSON-P and JSF, we
believe that it is also appropriate for us to include JSON-B and MVC
in the Java EE 8 Web Profile as well.

Please let us know if for some reason you object.
