Specification Draft Available
26 May 2011.Draft spec submitted and JSR107 is officially active againThe spec is once again marked as active. We have been working for a few months now but the spec could not be marked as active until we submitted a draft.
Specification Draft AvailableYannis Cosmadopoulos (Oracle rep) and I have been working steadily on = the spec. It is now 34 pages long. See https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YZ-lrH6nW871Vd9Z34Og_EqbX_kxxJi55UrSn4= yL2Ak/edit?hl=3Den Note that this is the spec as it has been drafted. Still there is enough there now to give an idea of scope.
1 February 2011The JSR is now underway again, this time with resource committments from Oracle and Terracotta. Stay tuned.
26 January 2010This JSR was marked inactive due to a lack of progress. That lack of progress was due to a lack of resources being applied. Google's recent adoption of the draft specfication for Google App Engine, the emergence of a new standardised REST API for caching (rest-*) and the healthy marketplace of open source and commercial Java caching vendors shows that there is still widespread need and interest in creating a completed standard around Java caching. Terracotta is prepared to sponsor the development and completion of this specification. Greg Luck is now with Terracotta full-time and he will be able to work on JSR. Facilities such as conference call facilities and webex will also be made available. With that in mind the new timetable is proposed, subject to confirmation from the Expert Group in a meeting 11 February 2010.

To help facilitate the expert group and provide admin support Greg Luck was added as co spec lead with Cameron Purdy. (The community process has many procedures that can only be executed by the spec lead). Other membership changes which are pending:
