Java News from Thursday, November 13, 2008

Sun has posted the early draft review of JSR-316, Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 (Java EE 6) Specification , to the Java Community Process. The download site seems to be acting up at the moment, and won't let me read the draft, but according to the JSR,

This JSR will not itself define any new APIs, rather it will enumerate APIs defined in other JSRs or through the JCP maintenance process.

Java EE 6 is the Enterprise Edition of version 6 of the Java platform, and thus will be built on Java SE 6.

We propose to include the following new JSRs in Java EE 6:

In addition, we expect to update the following existing technologies for Java EE 6:

The exact set of technologies to be included will be determined by the expert group and will be based on partner and customer requirements.

Comments are due by November 22.
