Will the existing JIRA issues be considered for the
next release or do we have to make sure to re-engage?

We are interested
in continuing with Java Batch in the Jakarta EE
space. I've been talking with our spec lead
here at IBM and we're working through the
details. Currently, Java Batch is maintained in
github under Apache v2 license. Here's a
pointer to the project's wiki: https://github.com/WASdev/standards.jsr352.batch-spec/wiki.
Since the Batch Spec
352) was first introduced in Java EE
7, it has been well received by the community
and greatly helped standardize modern batch
processing applications. There was plan to
include a next release of batch spec into Java
EE 8, but unfortunately was left out. Now under
the new Jakarta EE umbrella, what is the plan
for batch spec?
I would love to see
continued support for batch spec in Jakarta EE,
as well as further evolution of the spec to add
more features. Some important features (e.g.,
job definition inheritance, etc) had to be
deferred to batch.next at the last minute of
batch spec 1.0. So it would be nice to carry
forward these deferred tasks.
What do you think
about batch.next in Jakarta EE? I appreciate
your thoughts and comments.
