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!
