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. The Morocco JUG had been at the forefront of Adopt-a-JSR from the very start. In fact the JUG was awarded as an "Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant" for their contributions to Java EE 7. It should be no surprise the JUG is committed to helping Java EE 8 move forward through Adopt-a-JSR as well. In JUG leader Badr El Houari's own words - "Our goal is helping to shape the best Java enterprise platform ever!".
With that ambitious goal in mind the Morocco JUG started their year with a meeting on Adopt-a-JSR and Java EE 8. Held at the IBM Innovation Center in Casablanca the meeting was a full house with over ninety developers participating. Badr explained the Adopt-a-JSR program to JUG members and shared what JSRs he was hoping to support:
- CDI 2
- JMS 2.1
- JSF 2.3
- JAX-RS 2.1
We are sure to see great things from the Morocco JUG on Adopt-a-JSR and Java EE 8. Is your JUG adopting a Java EE 8 JSR yet :-)?
