The Java Community Process (JCP) plays a critical role in Java by developing the Java SE and Java EE specifications. Unfortunately most developers have very little understanding about how the JCP works let alone how they can contribute to it. In fact there are numerous misconceptions about the JCP.
This session takes an in-depth look into the JCP including its purpose, structure, governance, operations as well as how you can participate, observe or comment on the development of Java industry standards as an individual, company or JUG.
We will also discuss an innovative new program named Adopt-a-JSR and major initiatives such as Java EE 8.
