Re: What will be the effect of active participation by Java ...

 Whilst I understand the reluctance to simply add more developers.  It's not a case of simply throwing numbers of JUG users at a JSR.  There are genuine domain experts in JUGs that can server as EG members, skilled developers that can help with RI and TCK implementations and enthusiastic hordes that can help test early versions, give feedback and help deal with project overheads such as mailing lists and issue trackers as well as promoting hte JSR in general.
