JCP Heartbeat Monitor

  1. 1. New JSRs submitted. 80 60 40 20 0 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010
  2. 2. Potential reasons. - J2SE & Java Language is complete, not much more to add - J2EE as a broader spec became increasingly irrelevant, usable pieces like Servlet et al. are complete. - J2ME is in a tough spot since the release of the iPhone.
  3. 3. Unlikely reasons. - The Oracle acquisition was after the drop. - The Oracle/Google lawsuit was even later. - JCP process changes and open-source licensing disputes.
  4. 4. Anyway... - Numerous valuable specs came out of the JCP and will remain relevant for a long time. - All politics aside, the JCP was and still remains a very effective standardization body with a great working model.
