JCP EC Approve JSR 347

The JCP Executive Committee has approved the JSR Review ballot for JSR 347,
Data Grids for the Java Platform
, which proposes an API for
interacting with in-memory and disk-based distributed data grids.
The JSR was passed with eight
yes votes, and one no vote
. VMware voted against the JSR,
stating that:

“VMware has serious concerns around the proposed JSR’s
relationship with JSR-107. While we note that some other EC members
hope that the necessary harmonization can occur after the approval
of this JSR, we would prefer to see such discussions take place
before another potentially competing JSR is approved, and see that
path as less risky.”
