The first batch of MVC expert group members have been determined. For the ones that were added to the EG, welcome aboard! For the ones that were declined, please be aware there are multiple ways to stay involved with the MVC specification, so please don't despair!
In case you didn't know starting a specification takes a bit of time. All kinds of infrastructure needs to be setup. So please bear with us.
I had a great time at JavaOne this year. I met up with a lot of old friends, made a number of new friends, but above all learned a lot. And I am excited to start hacking on both the JSF and the MVC specifications!
For all you Glassfish users out there Glassfish 4.1 has been released. See https://blogs.oracle.com/java/entry/glassfish_server_open_source_edition for more information
The ballot for MVC 1.0 has passed and we have approval. So now it is time to move forward with EG formation and from there it is off to work!
Since we are a new JSR we do not have all our infrastructure setup yet.
Please be patient we will get everything setup soon.
Note as I am attending JavaOne it might not happen until after JavaOne ;)
And we are on our way for JSF 2.3 now.
The kick off email to the JSF 2.3 EG has been sent! You can see the publicly available announcement on the spec users list, see https://java.net/projects/javaserverfaces-spec-public/lists/users/archiv...

Yes, it is actually happening, a bit late to the game but I am in full swing in preparing for JavaOne. You might wonder why a bit late. Well at the time of the call for papers for JavaOne the MVC JSR was still in a large state of flux. Since then a lot has happened, it is currently waiting for its final approval (yes the ballot closes Sept 22, 2014, which is today).
Now that both JSRs have been filed what is the next step? Well, we are waiting for the ballots to be done.
Once the ballots are done and the results are in (and assuming they are positive, which I assume they will be), then the next part in the process is to form the EG and get started for real.
For both JSRs the approval ballot needs to be done September 22nd, 2014. So stay tuned!
As part of the JavaEE 8 survey the question was asked if the community wanted a simple action-based MVC framework. Since the answer was a clear yes, we are now going working towards it. The MVC 1.0 JSR has been filed!
