Java News from Wednesday, November 5, 2003

New Atlanta has released ServletExec 5.0, a payware servlet engine that supports the Java Servlet API 2.4, JavaServer Pages (JSP) 2.0, JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL) 1.1, annd JavaServer Faces (JSF) 1.0. It runs opn top of Apache, IIS, and several other web servers. Pricing starts at $695 per CPU. Upgrades are cheaper.

The polls are open for Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE) executive committee positions in the Java Community Process (JCP). Doug Lea knows what he's up to, and deserves to be elected. I have no particular endorsements among the remaining candidates. For myself, I stay out of the Java Community Process and will continue to do so as long as it remains closed and secretive.
