Hello all,


Kicked off after it was pointed out that there was a desire for change to the Backwards Compatibility Requirements for Jakarta EE specifications, along with some calls to define a versioning system (semantic or otherwise), the Specification Committee has been working on an updated process to define all of this.

The draft proposal we’ve produced covers how versioning for the Platform and Component specifications will be done, and how features can be deprecated or changed in a breaking manner.


We would like to invite you to review and provide feedback against the draft proposal which can be found here:
