Subject: [torontojug] Adopt-a-JSR Hack Day
At this month's meeting, I asked for a show of hands to see who's interested in spending part of a day trying out a JSR that's still in its non-final stages of development and therefore open to change in response to constructive criticism, bug reports, etc.
This event will be part of Adopt-A-JSR , a global effort by an increasing number of JUGs to get involved in shaping changes to the Java SE and Java EE libraries while there is still a chance to make a difference.
Some JSRs that TJUG members have already expressed interest in trying out:
* JSR-353 (JSON API)  - there are many less-than-awesome JSON processors out there. Let's not carve one in stone! :)
* JSR-310 (Date & Time)  - Strongly based on JodaTime, so probably awesome, but why wait to find out?
* JSR-236 (Concurrency Utilities for Java EE)  - Legalizing java.util.concurrent.* in Java EE containers
If you want to give this a try, please take a second to let us know when you're available over the next few weekends:
(fill in ALL the times you're available)
Also let us know which JSRs you're interested in (they don't have to be from the above short list) either here on the mailing list, or on the comments section on When is Good.
