Spec Lead Guide
This Guide is designed to answer common questions from the Spec Leads, familiarize current and future Spec Leads with the Java Specification Request (JSR) process, and provide step-by-step instructions for reaching each milestone in the process..
The success of the Java Community Process (JCP) program is dependent on the success of its Specification Leads. This guide is a living document based on experiences of current Spec Leads and will be expanded as new suggestions and helpful hints are submitted. Whenever the PMO improves the process the Spec Lead Guide will be updated with the latest information.
A typical JCP 2.8 JSR follows a predictable timeline, as shown below.
Specification Leads may also find it useful to review the JCP milestone Gantt chart.
The PMO welcomes suggestions and requests from the Spec Leads for improvements of this guide and the process: pmo@
