In the Java EE 8 survey JCache came out as one of the top prioritised
features. See

If I'm not mistaken JCache would originally have been included in Java EE
7, but just missed the boat and went final a little while after EE 7. So
you could perhaps say that for EE 8 the spec had all the time in the world,
since it was mostly ready before EE 8 even started.

Yet, I don't see much activity regarding JCache and Java EE 8.

If I understood correctly what mostly needs to be done still is the EE
integration. But that too actually seems largely done already.

For the RI and CDI see:

More specifically for Payara:

So I wonder, what are the current plans for JCache and Java EE 8?

Kind regards,
