Dear specleads and experts,
Good to hear that we can get started now :) Will we get some details about
the hurdles that needed to be overcome ?
Unfortunately my schedule is a bit tight at the moment, so the only day that
would work for me this week is Thursday.
Of course I prefer some central Europe (work-) day time.
A (certainly totally incomplete) list of expectations for me would be:
1.) evolve Java ME into a future proof, up-to-date platform for M2M
applications. This might in some cases mean to include some proprietary APIs
already used in Java ME, in some cases that might mean to include some APIs
or functionality which are today only in Java SE, in some cases that might
also mean that we need to go beyond SE because typical M2M (mostly embedded)
devices do have some needs which are even not covered by SE.
2.) close the gap to Java SE. This is a very complex issue as it probably
also affects SE.
But this gap is often a big hassle for users who work with SE and ME and it's
also often hard to explain why these two java platforms are so different.
3.) a list of expected technical improvements would certainly be long. I
assume Oracle is well aware of most of them and we will start this discussion
as soon as we see the draft.
Looking forward to getting this JSR started and also seeing the first spec

Subject: [jsr361-experts] Kick off - finally!
it has been a long time since the JSR has been officially started and you
have absolved the formalities to join this expert group. Thanks again for
You have probably wondered when we will start. The good news: the time is
now! There had been a couple of hurdles to be overcome, adminsitrative ones,
legal ones, and technical ones during the last months, but now we are ready
I plan to have a (telephone) kickoff meeting with you next week, and this
email is about to clarify two issues:
1. When: With one exception (and this is a colleague of mine at Oracle) all
EG members are located in Europe or Asia, so I guess you would prefer a time
not too late (from CET point of view). Pls. let us know (via this
distribution) your preferences for next week, and also blocked times, when
you could not attend under any circumstances. I'll try to find a slot then
that fits best for all. We are not so many, so this seems to be realistic.
2. What: Of course there is speclead draft under construction, and I intend
to present it to you very soon. But first I would like you to list your
expectations wrt this JSR. So pls. include into your email a list f 2-3
points you would like to have solved/introduced/improved by this profile.
(The list can of course also be longer, if you have more issues to discuss).
I'll consolidate your input and we can use it as a first basis for our
discussion in the kick-off meeting. Also, I would like to check the speclead
draft for things that may not have been taken into account so far.
I'm looking forward to your input and to our collaboration in this expert
Best regards, have a nice weekend -
