Welcome to the Java Community Process!
Welcome to jcp.org, home of the Java Community ProcessSM (JCPSM) Program. The JCP is the mechanism for developing standard technical specifications for Java technology. Anyone can register for the site and participate in reviewing and providing feedback for the Java Specification Requests (JSRs), and anyone can sign up to become a JCP Member and then participate on the Expert Group of a JSR or even submit their own JSR Proposals.
 
To get the most out of the site, register now.

For more information about the JCP Program, refer to our overview page.

Another Wave Washes Through the JCP.org Site
The JCP community continues to revise itself, with progress lapping forward in a series of gentle waves. Read the article here.

JCP.Next Progress Update
JSR 358, A major revision of the Java Community Process,has been submitted and is in JSR Review. JSR 355, JCP Executive Committee Merge, is currently nearing the end of the Public Review Ballot. The ballot closes on 26 June 2012.

The JCP Executive Committee met face to face in Sao Paulo, Brazil earlier in May, and has published a revision (version 2.1) of the EC Standing Rules. The EC Standing Rules were introduced in October 2011 with the launch of JCP version 2.8 (JSR 348). Version 2.1 of the EC Standing Rules will modify rules for attendance at EC face-to-face meetings. Remote observers will be permitted in "read-only" mode but unless a member attends in person they will be counted as absent. The review period for these changes will close on June 30 2012. Please comment on the proposed changes by logging an issue in the JCP EC issue tracker.

EC Meetings
The latest EC meeting summaries have been posted. There are now four EC Members that have lost their voting privileges--AT&T, RIM, SK Telecom and Samsung. In order to regain their privileges, these EC Members must attend two EC meeting in a row, as detailed in the EC Standing Rules.
