I'm thrilled of the news and the prospect of the improvements and new
What I'm most excited about, though, is the renewed commitment to openness,
breaking new ground with this dedicated public list to the discussion of cdi
From the proposal:
"We will leverage the collaborative tools provided by the JBoss Community
We have a public issue tracker for tracking most issues at
CDI. We have a public EG discussion list at
which is free for anyone to join and post to. We will have an EG-private
mailing list, and we
will a public wiki. The reference implementation will be developed entirely
in the public Weld
project in the JBoss Community. The TCK will be developed entirely in the
public CDI TCK
in the JBoss Community. We will leverage the Early Draft feature of JCP 2.6
to allow the
public to see the spec in progress."
"The Specification will be licensed via the ASL 2.0 license.
The RI and TCK will be licensed via the ASL 2.0 license."
These choices will no doubt put CDI on the fast track to becoming *the*
programming model of choice for enterprise Java developers, with or without
the Java EE platform.
Great work Pete!
