How to submit your executed Java Specification Participation Agreement (JSPA)

You may execute the JSPA via fax, soft-copy or hard-copy. Below are the instructions for all. Please be cautioned that a hard-copy only submission will take significantly more time to process. Preferred method of submission is via soft-copy or fax. If you or your organization would like to keep an original of the executed agreement, we suggest that you first send us your agreement via soft-copy or fax, and then send us a hard-copy via post.
