The CJUG has adopted JSR 366 as part of the Adopt-a-JSR program. The Adopt-a-JSR initiative provides options for community members to help build the future of Java by contributing to the JSRs in a number of different ways. JSR 366 is the all encompassing JSR for the development of Java EE 8, the next release of the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition. In this session, we will briefly cover the overall status of the different JSRs that are part of Java EE 8, and we will then discuss a number of different ways in which the CJUG members can help contribute. Lastly, you will learn how to obtain the sources for the Java EE 8 JSRs so that you can begin testing the milestone releases to provide feedback, which is one of the most useful contributions toward the future of Java EE!
