We're now really close to releasing a Community Review Draft for Web Beans. The purpose of the draft is to gather feedback on the component model, dependency management model and extensible context model that we've defined, and hopefully get people excited about Web Beans. We also need to get our work in front of the other EE6-related expert groups, so that they can start thinking about how they can possibly re-use and integrate with some of the mechanisms we have defined. However, the specification is by nature written in highly technical language, so this blog entry is the first in a serious of articles giving a friendly, introductory guide to Web Beans. When the Community Review Draft is released, please take the time to download and review it. But please read this series /first/.
No, I really didn't get one. I think I deserve it, I'd even buy glasses and send my picture in for the ad. Actually, not interested if it's not a 3G iPhone.

Over the last year or so, we've been thinking hard about what kind of new functionality we want to see in the next rev of the EE platform, and feeding our ideas to Sun to incorporate into the JSR proposals for the next round of EE specifications. These JSRs should become public fairly soon now, but I wanted to give a rundown on the things that are important to me, and why I think they're important. A lot of these items have come out of our experience with Seam, others have been things that have been missing from the platform for a long time. My wishlist is pretty long, so I'm going to spread it over several posts. First up, I'll talk about session beans.
