Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] [jsp-dev] Splitting JSP-API IMPL off to a separate project


I agree with both points, this is definitely not something to even try to cram into the Jakarta EE 9 compatible implementation GlassFish. Furthermore the name should not make any claims to be RI related. I hope the proposed WaSP would not have any such associations.

Kind regards,

First of all my opinion is that splitting off the implementation is work that should be done but is very low priority for Jakarta EE 9.  If there's nothing else you can do to help Jakarta EE 9 meet its release date, then working on this might be reasonable.

Choosing a new name for the implementation is a complicated process.  A simple, obvious, boring name such as "jsp-impl" is probably the easiest.  I definitely would recommend against a name with any concept of "reference" since we're trying hard to purge the idea of a "reference implementation".

Not sure renaming to WaSP will actually mean much.

Sorry, but there's no renaming going on. The Jakarta Server Pages will remain to be called Jakarta Server Pages.

This just concerns the name for an implementation.


Spec: Jakarta Faces  
Impl: Mojarra, MyFaces

Spec: Jakarta Security
Impl: Soteria

Spec: Jakarta Server Pages
Impl: Jasper (part of Tomcat), WaSP (new name for previously unnamed impl folder)
