This should principally fit in perfectly with Java EE 8. The JSR has
"Alignment with Java SE 8" as one of the major topics. See

I think each constituent spec has to be addresses separately. As you've
signed the OCA, then if I'm not mistaken you can do PRs or send patches to
all the RI projects this concerns. E.g. for JSF you can send me (or another
Mojarra committer) the patch or send a PR to my Github working repo.

One problem may be that not all specs are active at the moment (don't have
an EG at the moment), so if any of those are affected I think at least a MR
for them should be started then.

Wonder what the thoughts of others and specifically the spec leads are
about this.

Kind regards,
Arjan Tijms
