Re: Final Approval Ballot passes! :)

Yes, congratulations indeed!

Thanks to all the experts and contributors, and especially to Arjan, for all your efforts, and for your patience with me coming up to speed mid-stream.

I'd also like to thank Alex for his work getting this JSR off the ground -- putting together the original proposal, forming the expert group, and leading the initial rounds of specification work. We would not have a spec today without him, either!

It was a unique experience to be involved in an EG and I learned a lot.

And Thanks to Arjan for the huge amount of work he has put into the spec. Without his work, there would be no vote at all if you ask me :)

I hope we can soon start with the security.NEXT version so that we can define all the initial ideas to make Java EE Security complete.

Best regards

Hi all,

Today we passed our Final Approval Ballot:

The result is an unanimous yes, with only Intel not having voted.

Thanks to everybody involved :) Without all of your help this would not have been possible!

As mentioned before, the JSR is *much* smaller than what we initially set out for, but it's an enormous step in the right direction as far as I'm concerned. Being so small may have its advantages even, as instead of getting an enormous framework dropped into their laps, users can now more gradually discover Java EE security.

The spec document can be found here, extra thanks to Will for taking care of that part so much:

For now there's a few tiny bugs left in the implementation (Soteria), but nothing preventing a 1.0 release. Of course, as happens for each and every RI out there, incremental updates (Soteria 1.0.1, 1.1 etc) should be released with some frequency to address whatever is going to be found and raised by the community.

Kind regards,
Arjan Tijms
