Members of the community nominate worthy participants, Spec Leads, and Java Specification Requests (JSRs) in order to cheer on the hard work and creativity that produces ground-breaking results for the community and industry in the Java Standard Edition (SE), Java Enterprise Edition (EE), or Java Micro Edition (ME) platforms.

Welcome to the JCP community, a gathering place of those who are involved in JSR projects as well as those interested in work defined by the JCP process. This community is designed to be a place for JCP discussion and collaboration. The development of the outputs of a JSR — the Specification, the Reference Implementation (RI) and the TCK — will take place here on

The JCP projects found here are led by Spec Leads who have decided to leverage's infrastructure for JCP development and collaboration. You will also find other JCP discussions that may or may not be led by Spec Leads or those involved in the JCP. Each hosted JCP Project has a public area where discussions will take place between the community and those involved in the JCP development project.

For more information about the JCP Program, refer to our overview page.

Happy 15th Birthday to the JCP!

JCP 2.9 contains a number of required measures to ensure transparency of the operation of the Expert Group. JCP 2.9 JSR Specification Leads are free to come up with their own implementations of these requirements, but one way of doing them is to create a project on for the JSR. This page explains how to do this.
