Java News from Tuesday, December 16, 2008

Sun has posted the public review draft of JSR-315, Java Servlet 3.0 Specification (though it seems to be marked as a proposed final draft?). The section on what's new doesn't seem to have been written yet. I do note that query string parsing is still under-specified, and a lot of the javaDoc relies on very old-fashioned, never-quite-specified idea like CGI environment variables. Comments are due by January 12, and I will be sending in a few.
