Agenda and Minutes

[IG] Individual Specifications Plan Reviews

  • Deadline for potential inclusion in 9.1: January 31
  • None so far
  • Rumors that Jakarta REST will have a release
  • Others?
    • Activation - No API changes, only minor JavaDocs and “build stuff” -> will mail, jaxb, jaxrs need to update dependencies to the latest version?
    • Do we need a release review for a patch release (service release)? Check with the specification committee. Add this to the agenda for tomorrow’s (01/13/2021) meeting.
      • We want to be able to release bug fixes/errata releases without going through the entire process of releasing a specification version.

Jakarta EE 9.1

  • Proposed 9.1 Release Plan:
  • Discussed the ORB References section in Jakarta Enterprise Beans. Removing this section will require a minor release of this specification. Making it optional will also require an update.
  • Jakarta EE 9.1 TCK needs to allow execution with either Java SE 8 or Java SE 11.
