Java News from Monday, August 21, 2006

Sun has posted the early draft review of JSR-291 Dynamic Component Support for Java SE to the Java Community Process. "The OSGi Service Platform Core Specification defines dynamic component technology for Java. JSR 291 introduces this into the Java Community Process (JCP) for Java SE. JSR 232 does the same for Java ME. The result is a consistent dynamic component technology across Java SE and Java ME. The requirements of JSR 291 are targeted at Version 4.1 of the Core Specification". Comments are due by September 1

Sun has also posted the early draft review of JSR-286 Java Portlet Specification 2.0 . "This first draft does not contain all the functionality that the JSR 286 EG considers for this JSR, but mainly supports the features introduced with Web Service for Remote Portlets (WSRP) V 2.0 defined at OASIS and thus the JSR 286 EG seeks feedback these features. Additional features will be introduced with a second early draft." Comments are due by September 1
