Liferay's Stewardship of JSR 378

Company Blogs September 8, 2015 By Neil Griffin Staff

On August 3, 2015 the JCP Executive Committee approved the ballot for starting JSR 378: Portlet 3.0 Bridge for JavaServer™ Faces 2.2. This is the first time that Liferay will be leading a JSR and as the Spec Lead I will be heading up the stewardship role. Liferay will also be represented by Vernon Singleton, Juan Gonzalez, and Kyle Stiemann as members of the Expert Group.
First and foremost I would like to thank Michael Freedman for the work he did representing Oracle as the Spec Lead for JSR 329 (the predecessor of JSR 378). His mastery of the subject matter and his attention to detail are second-to-none, and I will be standing on the shoulders of a giant. I would also like to thank Ed Burns, Manfred Riem, and Ross Clewley of Oracle for their kindness in helping to make JSR 378 a reality.

Open Standards + Open Source = Confidence

Open standards like those from the JCP are important to Liferay's customers and community because they instill confidence in the staying power of a technology. Since the JCP expert groups do their work in an open manner, anyone can follow the progress of these technologies. In addition, many of the Reference Implementations (RIs) are developed as open source. Liferay Faces Bridge will be the RI for JSR 378 and will be made available under the Apache License, Version 2.0.
Over the years Liferay has served on JSR 362 (Portlet 3.0), JSR 372 (JSF 2.3), JSR 344 (JSF 2.2), JSR 314 (JSF 2.0/2.1), and JSR 286 (Portlet 2.0). By taking a leadership role with JSR 378 and developing the RI as open source, Liferay customers and community members can be confident that their technology investment in JSF portlets will be supported for years to come.
