      Description

      One of the problems with the JSR specifications is that application developers often do not read them or consult them as reference material.

      I believe one of the reasons for this is that the specifications aren't directly available on the web as HTML. Today, reading a specification usually requires one to accept the license agreement before downloading the specification as a PDF file.

      Contrast this to how easily available the HTTP RFC is at http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616.

      I wish we had a similar web site for reading JSRs. The Servlet specification could for instance be available as HTML at http://jcp.org/html/jsr315.

      By having predictable URLs parametrized by the JSR number we could have IDEs make the specifications instantly available to developers by right clicking a class and then choose "Open specification".
