Hi,

A suggestion was made some time ago that we solicit help from the
Adopt-a-JSR program for  our work. I had actually followed up on that and
had obtained information from the JCP folks on the program, but until now,
I didn't have time to compose text for be sent out on the adopt-a-jsr
mailing list or posted on their wiki. I finally got around to doing that
today.

Here is my proposed solicitation - I would be very interested in your
comments and suggestions.

thanks,
Scott

The JSR 362 EG is still in an early stage of deliberations about the
Portlet Specification Version 3.0. Information about what we have done so
far and what we intend to accomplish can be obtained from several
locations:

* The JCP organization main page for JSR 362:
http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=362
* On the JSR 362 project page, you can find high-level bullet items of
proposed topics: https://java.net/projects/portletspec3.
** You can subscribe to the project mailing list on this site to stay
informed about our progress.
* We are developing the next version of the portlet 3 interfaces using
Github as a source repository: https://github.com/msnicklous/portletspec3 ;.

We want the Portlet Specification 3.0 to provide great functionality that
can be efficiently used by Java EE developers. Developers should be able to
easily understand portlet concepts and be able to quickly come up to speed
in developing portlet code.  Portlets should optimally leverage Java EE
features as modern web applications that support mobile devices and provide
great client-side support.

To assure that we reach these goals, we would be very interested in
obtaining feedback from Java User Groups about your experience with the
current JSR 286 specification and about your ideas and desires for new
features for the upcoming Portlet Specification Version 3.0.

In particular, you could help us in the following ways:

* Provide feedback about the current portlet specification
** Would there be any clarifications / changes needed to make it easier to
use?
** In your experience with portlets, have you noted any "gotchas",
programming problems that you run into again and again, that maybe we could
alleviate through a change in the specification?

* Send us your ideas for new functions / features for version 3
** What are the main Java EE features that you would like to see portlets
support?
** What new features would you like to see adopted by the portlet
specification?

* Get involved with the portlet reference implementation.
** The Portlet 2.0 Reference Implementation is hosted on the Apache Pluto
project, see: http://portals.apache.org/pluto/
** We haven't started work on the Version 3 RI yet, but we will probably
begin work before too long.
** If you would be interested in helping with the RI, now would be the time
to start becoming active at the Apache Pluto project.
