Project Lambda to be Discussed in Open
Brian Goetz Posts Details of Project Lambda JSR
Brian Goetz has posted about Project Lambda's possible inclusion in Java SE 8. He reveals that the Expert Group will take the State of the Lambda documents as a starting point, validate and explore the design, and then work towards producing a specification, RI and TCK. Alex Buckley, Maurizio Cimadamore, Fredrik Ohrstrom, and Robert Field will aid the Expert Group in their endeavour. Brian Goetz also reveals that this JSR will use both a public mailing list and a public discussion list for the Expert Group discussion, with the possibility of mail from the Expert Group list being automatically forwarded to the public discussion list. "Oracle is committed to developing Java in the open," he states. The existing OpenJDK repository will be used for developing the RI.
