This page details the proposed, accepted and deferred changes to JSR 172, documenting the changes that will go into the next revision, per Section 4.2 of the JCP 2.5 document.
The following changes were accepted on 11 October 2011: Since the finalization of JSR 172 in 2004, some technologies this JSR relies upon have evolved. This is particularly the case for JAX-RPC: since then, some parts of that technology have been fully integrated in other platforms like Java SE or Java EE. In this process and over time, some minor but yet relevant changes have occurred.
Market feedback has shown that JSR 172 applications and implementations are being reused heterogeneously across various Java platforms allowing a variety of valid use cases but are potentially hindered by limitations imposed in this aging specification.
This maintenance release proposes aligning those changes in JSR 172 to offer a consistent experience for the developers across platforms.
