Spec Committee will take the position via a resolution to require this for component specifications in Jakarta EE 10

PROPOSED RESOLUTION: The Specification Committee resolves that no new optional features may will be added in Jakarta EE 10 and beyond in component, Platform, or Profile specifications.

The chair will initiate a 7 day ballot with this resolution on the public Spec Discussion mailing list

  • The Specification Committee chair is unavailable for the meeting scheduled on August, 11th. The chair proposes to cancel the meeting for a summer break for the committee. Next scheduled meeting would therefore be held on August 25th and 1300 UTC.

    • No objections were noted to canceling the meeting on August 11th, our next call will be on August 25th
