Overview: The Java Community Process (JCP), introduced in 1998, develops and maintains Java technology specifications, reference implementations, and test suites. Java is a high-end, object oriented programming language. The work of the Java Community under the JCP's procedures helps to ensure Java technology's standard of stability and cross-platform compatibility, enabling it to operate on various devices, from desktop computers to consumer electronics. The JCP also continually grows the platform's specification portfolio to meet the emerging technology needs of developers and organizations globally. The Java Community Process program promotes the Java platform in cooperation with the international Java developer community. All specifications and all proposals for new or revised specifications, and all proposed error corrections and changes to existing specifications, are open to the public for review and comment. Reviews are posted as links from the JSR detail pages.
