JSR Voting:
355 – JCP Executive Committee Merge Public Review Ballot

  Voted Yes with comment:

The LJC believes strongly that Java is one platform and that a smaller, more focused committee will produce results on more responsive timescales.

358 – A major revision of the Java Community Process

  JSR Review Ballot Vote scheduled for June 28 – July 9th

  Discussed the background and a couple of minor points and agreed to follow-up via e-mail.


  • Successfully migrated to a java.net project – adoptajsr.java.net
  • Now has a much larger communal mailing list ~ 67 members
  • Further discussion on JavaEE JSRs and low level of interest from the LJC. Had one additional expression of interest. Jim to follow-up on EE.


  • Not really a JCP topic, so in future going to move discussion out of this group.
  • Had a Lambdas hack day. Lots of interesting feedback. Trying to organise another one. Planned for 30 June.
