|Re: [jakarta.ee-community] Fork Eclipse MicroProfile Configuration as Jakarta Configuration.|
Secondly, do you acknowledge that MicroProfile is not an open standard today?
I don’t think the EF is a formal standards body (at least yet)?
I want to reply clearly to this, because I have seen the same confusion elsewhere in this thread.
It is correct to say that the "EF is not a formal standards
body". That is *completely* irrelevant to these discussions. The
Java Community Process (JCP) is also not a formal standards body
and never will be. It produced open specifications, not open
standards. That doesn't mean that it was not successful for many
years in driving industry open specifications that multiple
vendors implemented, supported, and created a hugely successful
Jakarta EE is absolutely an "open specification", and meets all
of the industry expectations of such, including having properly
governed IP flows and management. And it was specifically designed
to overcome many of the perceived shortcomings of the JCP,
including a lack of vendor neutrality.
It is the stated intent of all of the stakeholders to get
MicroProfile to the same level.
