As Oracle is actively involved here beside other JCP (and EG) Members, this will certainly play a role for Java EE 8 and beyond:
A lot of it uses JSON, thus both JSON-P and for the EE 8 Release Train there should also be JSON-B make great sense here for the Java Platform.
Especially the notion of State also relates to JSRs like State Management (350) which is likely to play a vital role for EE 8 and other parts of the Java Ecosystem, too.
