Planning and Timeline
Second Public Review (version 0.8) has been passed successfully.
In the mean time we decided to base the API on Java 8 instead of Java 7 (currently version 0.9-SNAPSHOT). This simplifies the API regarding various aspects and quite probably will simplify/enable a later includion into the JDK (JEP must be filed soon).
Proposed Final Draft is targeted for August /September 2014.
Currently the following areas were great for helping us:
Just playing around with the API/SPI and give feedback, where it can be improved, or things are unclear.
Reading and checking our JavaDoc in the RI/TCK for correctness, typos and comprehensiveness.
The RI may profit well from additional tests to be written.
We have moved our specification from GoogleDoc to Asciidoctor (now contained in src/main/asciidoc in the API module). Whereas HTML output works perfectly, rendering PDF does fail. So if somebody knows well asciidoctor, help in that area would be welcome.
The TCK has also progressed well. Only a few tests are missing. Nevertheless the existing TCK must be checkedm if all possible test failures have well descriptive messages in place.
Additionally our public finance library project, that evolved out of this JSR, should progress further. Hereby all contributions are welcome, from coding, testing, documentation, Wiki, ...
Similarly our JSR Examples may be extended and completed, or adapted to the latest changes.
