Notice that JSF 2.0 is almost done.
JSF 2.0 Public Review Ballot Starts Tomorrow
Schedule as of 20090105
The public review draft ballot for JSF 2.0 starts tomorrow and voting
continues until close of business Monday 12 January 2008. This means
Executive Committee members are able to cast their votes on whether
or not the spec can proceed from its current
Review Draft status to being revised into a Proposed Final Draft.
The meaning of this ballot is described in section
href="http://jcp.org/en/procedures/jcp2#3.2">3.2 of the JCP Process
Document which I excerpt here.
If the Public Draft Specification Ballot fails, the Expert Group will
have 30 days to update the draft in response to the concerns raised by
the EC and submit a revised version to the PMO. When the revised draft
is submitted, there's another ballot called the "reconsideration
ballot". If this ballot fails, the JSR will be closed and the Expert
Group will disband.
If the Public Draft Specification Approval Ballot (or reconsideration
ballot) is successful, the Expert Group will prepare the Proposed Final
Draft of the Specification by completing any revisions it deems
necessary in response to comments received.
EC Members may cast two types of votes: "yes" and "no". Alternatively, a
Member may explicitly abstain or, in the extreme and undesirable case,
not vote at all.
If you happen to have some kind of channel to one or more of the
individuals on the
href="http://jcp.org/en/participation/committee#SEEE">Java EE Executive
Committee, please share your thoughts with them to help inform their
ballot vote. We've received a few comments to
firstname.lastname@example.org and also to
discussion thread but more input is always welcome. You can simply post a reply to this blog entry if you want!
On the right is a snapshot of our latest spec schedule. You can see
that we're nearly done!
