Hi Sergey,

 You’re still on the list ;) The overall schedule for Java EE 8 has been revised [1], so we have a bit more time. We have been doing some work internally that we’ll be sharing shortly. Marek is on vacation now and will be in the few weeks; I hope to resume discussions towards the end of July. The plan is to have an EDR ready in time for JavaOne.

Hi All

I'm a bit concerned that 6 months after the group started its work I've no idea what is happening, what the plans are.
I actually was concerned I got unsubscribed :-), any chance some update can be posted ? I'm concerned that at some point we will just see the proposals coming in with the little time and scope left for doing the reasonable discussion

Thanks, Sergey

Basically, it does not matter for CXF, as we won;t start a 2.1 work in
the short term either way. But as I said, perhaps one should think about
users who won't be able to move to Java 8 in the short or medium term

Of course if all the 2.1 features will absolutely need Java 8 then so
be it,
my point basically is that if we start from Java 8 and yet some 2.1
won't actually depend on Java 8 then I reckon the adoption of
2.1 will be prolonged...
That said - may be some people still considering migrating from 1.1 to
2.0 :-), so I don;t know...

This might lead to worse API choices as it constraints us to not use

As I've suggested earlier, it might make sense to start from working
on JAX-RS 2.1 features that can still run with JDK 1.7 - simply to
make the adoption of 2.1 faster for the existing JDK 1.7 users and
get the features depending on Java 8 language features in the
end/second half of the 2.1 development life-cycle. Not sure how
realistic it is though

   I will, once I get a chance to review it with Marek.

Also I'd like to ask for clarification on Java 8: Will the new API
support Lambdas and Streams, hence make the use of Java SE 8

   Possibly. We certainly want to take advantage of SE 8 features,
but we also feel that by the time EE 8 is out, SE 8 will be the
mainstream version. As a data point, I believe Oracle will not
provide any more public updates of SE 7 after this month.
