No Java EE Configuration for EE8
I apologize to have really disappointing news about the configuration JSR. Though we had basically setup everything, and I was really working hard to get the config JSR up and running, no suitable agreement on the long term support for the TCK/RI could finally be found. Also my last trials to find alternative ways/partners was not successful. Since Credit Suisse is not able/willing to lead such an important JSR on its own, I must inform you that, if not something significant happens, there will be NO CONFIGURATION JSR.
I am personally very disappointed on that and also think that a good chance to improve our Java EE eco-system will be missed.
I will still try to push forward the topic, but since my current employer does not support OSS projects outside of the JCP, I will not be able to contribute any code in the next time.
If you have any questions you still may get in contact with me, or talk to me at JavaOne.
