Java EE 8 is under active development, and there are many areas in which the community can contribute. Adopt-a-JSR is a grassroots initiative by JUG leaders to encourage JUG members to get involved in a JSR. The CJUG has adopted JSR 366: Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 8 (Java EE 8) Specification, and we plan to help make a difference in the future of Java EE!
In this ONLINE ONLY session, we will contribute to the future of Java EE by targeting some specific issues and working them against GlassFish 4.1 Application Server. This will be a hands on session in which you can participate from your own living room. We will dig into the JIRA for one or more of the Java EE 8 JSRs, discuss issues, and possibly contribute via means of documentation, feedback, or code!
