Hello Volunteers,

You may have seen my colleague John Clingan's blog post updating the
community on the roadmap for Java EE 8 [1]. The most important sentence
has been helpfully bold-faced, and I repeat it here for convenience.

  We are therefore publicly announcing that we are now changing our
  target time frame for the completion of this work to the first half of

I'd like to take the opportunity presented by this blog post to sketch
out a plan to have an Early Draft Review (EDR) of the specification
available in time for JavaOne 2015. In my opinion, we need to specify
the following features in order to have something worth calling an EDR:

* HTTP/2 Server Push

* Inclusion or intentional ignoring of Reactive Streams

And in addition to that, we need to close out open issues on the mailing

As you know, I am also co-leading the JSF specification and supporting
JSF in Oracle products, and Shing-wai is also supporting Servlet in
Oracle products so our time will be split between Servlet and those
other efforts. I plan to take each of the above issues in turn and make
steady progress on them as time permits.
