It is truly heartwarming to see Adopt-a-JSR moving forward! Although it is still the early days a number of JUGs worldwide have already adopted Java EE 8 JSRs. One of the most active of these groups in the Chicago JUG. The JUG is hosting periodic meetups to work on contributing towards various Java EE 8 JSRs. Their first meetup in this vein was focused JSF 2.3. The meetup had two tracks - one for beginners and one for advanced users. Both were well received.

Bob Paulin, Chicago JUG President, led the beginners track through a tutorial that focused on building a simple JSF application using NetBeans 8, JSF 2, EJB 3, JPA 2 and the rest of the Java EE stack. The advanced track was led by key Java EE advocate Josh Juneau. Led by Josh, attendees checked out, setup (in an IDE), built and debugged the latest JSF 2.3/Mojarra code. Josh blogged the details on the meetup, including some great resources.

We can expect to see great things from the Chicago JUG on Adopt-a-JSR and Java EE 8! One of the earliest Adopt-a-JSR groups, the Morocco JUG also had a similar meetup recently that we will highlight next very soon.

Is your JUG adopting a Java EE 8 JSR yet :-)?
