I've just uploaded to our project documents area
( the drafts of the
Java EE 8 Platform and Web Profile specification documents that we
plan to submit to the JCP for Early Draft 2 review.

Changes to the specs are listed in the "Revision History" sections of
the documents. Changebars in the documents reflect changes since the
Early Draft 1.

Changes include the move of CORBA-related technologies such as IIOP to
"Proposed Optional" status, as we decided last December. Changes also
reflect Oracle's proposal to withdraw the JMS 2.1 JSR, and instead
include JMS 2.0 in Java EE 8. We have also removed MVC 1.0 from the
list of required technologies, given Oracle's proposed plan to not
continue with this JSR in Java EE 8. Please see also
