JSR 361, Java ME Embedded Profile, Early Draft Review. The review closes 30 June.
JSR 358, A Major Revision of the Java Community Process, has passed its JSR Renewal Ballot. From the Renewal Ballot: The subject-matter of this JSR (licensing, compatibility, intellectual-property) are extremely complex and require a great deal of discussion and negotiation between the lawyers and business representatives of the various EC companies and organizations. We've been working diligently on the JSR and have made significant progress. We held extensive discussions during our recent face-to-face meeting in Zurich (as we have done at each f2f meeting since the JSR was submitted) and during that meeting the Expert Group agreed to move forward with a series of proposals. Nevertheless, it is likely to be several months before we can produce an Early Draft for review.
Attend the first public EC Meeting of 2013 next week, on 11 June, to hear an update on JSR 358 and JCP.Next progress--details to follow later this week.
