Felipe Leme

Felipe Leme has worked professionally with Java since 1996, and in the last years had became an active enthusiastic of the technology: he is a frequent speaker in the main Brazilian Java conferences, presented at JavaOne for 3 years in a row, is a developer of a few Java-based open-source projects (like DbUnit and Jakarta Cactus), and is an individual member of the Java Community Process, where he took part of the JSP 2.1 and Java EE 5.0 expert groups.

He is a father of two, and in his spare time likes to assemble jigsaw puzzles and collect Marvel comic books with his older son, Thomas. He used to scuba dive as well, but have not dove yet in this new millennium.

Currently, he works as an independent consultant and Java instructor in Brazil, but is planning to move back to the US, where he worked from 1999 to 2002.

As a subscriber to the jcp-interest mailing lists, I receive many JCP/JSR announcements. In particular, everytime a JSR changes its status, I got an email about that change.

It's time to move on

Posted by felipeal on October 5, 2003 at 8:16 PM PDT

There's been a lot of talk lately about how Tiger (J2SE 1.5) is going to make Java easier to develop with, bringing it to the masses (or as Sun call it, to the "corporate developers"). I have no doubt that this promise *will* be fullfilled. My question is: *when* will that happen?

The new JCP 2.6 is almost there. Do you have anything to say?

Posted by felipeal on September 2, 2003 at 9:18 PM PDT

The Java Community Process (or JCP) is the main responsible for Java being open and "democratic". Everything that is incorporated to the Java platform - from specific APIs to full J2SE versions - is created through Java Specification Requests (or JSRs), and everyone can propose a new JSR or participate in existing ones.
