JCP.Next Update

Heather reviewed plans to start the JCP.Next working group as discussed in the May JCP EC Meeting. The working group meetings will start next week, time to be decided based on poll. The EC also discussed including input from the Java SE Platform group. Brian Goetz presented items for discussion and feedback from the group, and agreed to participate in future working group meetings (see the presentation for details). Tim commented that he agreed some processes don't make sense in the the new world, and that we should be mindful to ensure we are not missing contributions and continue to allow independent implementations. Leo asked about consideration of embedded features in Java SE and Brian responded that he would come back with an answer. David asked how the EC can be helpful to the Java SE team and about adoption and if the JCP EC needed to assist with polls on Java developer adoption. Brian thinks the integrity and implementability of the specifications have been crucial to the success of Java. EC Members should get involved in OpenJDK projects and contribute. Survey involvement may also be helpful and Heather agreed to add for future discussion. In addition, Brian reviewed a blog post on adoption and invited EC members to attend the OpenJDK committers workshop in August - the technical roadmap will be discussed, and some of the content will be recorded and made public for those who cannot attend in person. Martijn also commented that the LJC efforts detailed in his presentation also relates to these topics (see June public meeting for this agenda item). Heather will forward details for the working group meeting to be held next week.

Other Business

Heather reviewed the plans for our public EC meeting starting in the next hour, and encouraged EC members to participate in the poll for selecting our Spring 2019 face to face meeting location (either China, Japan or India).
