I have some feedback that I would like to share about the JPA 2.2
process (see email [1]). While, I enjoyed
listening to Lukas Jungmann's presentation [2], I am disappointed to not
yet be able to participate in the discussion of what changes should be
in JPA 2.2. I think it is very important that we follow the JCP 2.9
1.1.1 [3] guidance. I think that the easiest way to ensure that the
substantial development of the JPA 2.2 MR specification is observable,
is to immediately start a mailing list.

I also would like to congratulate Lukas Jungmann, on being the new JPA
specification lead! :-)




[3] Section 1.1.1 from

Expert Groups may choose to keep purely administrative matters private,
but all substantive business must be performed in a manner that allows
the public to observe their work and to respond to it. All proceedings,
discussions, and working documents must be published, and a mechanism
must be established to allow the public to provide feedback. One common
way of meeting these requirements is through the use of mailing lists,
but other alternatives such as blogs, Wikis, and discussion forums may
be preferred. Whatever communication mechanisms are chosen, these must
include an archiving function so that a record of all communications is
preserved. Archives must be readable by the public. 3
