I started to fill out a table of all of the Java Specification Requests that are supposed to go into Java EE 7. Because the platform edition is still being decided, some of the details are rather hard to pin down.

I am on the Java EE 7, EJB 3.2 and JMS 2.0 EGs. You have the numbers right for those. Personally, I am worried about adding too many new APIs to Java EE (full and web profile) too quickly. For example, I hope batch proccessing stays a one-off API. I believe we will need to be making decisions on these in the Java EE EG shortly, so its hard to say anything definitive...

I think it's JAX-WS 2.3, as jee6 already includes 2.2 spec.

Bummer, I was hoping for JMX 2.0. Still a nice list though

Hey, a followup... JAAS is listed above, anyone know what JSR that is? Security definitely needs some enhancement, I'm just curious to know what's in store.

Feel free to suggest specifics to the Java EE EG directly (http://java.net/projects/javaee-spec/pages/Home) or perhaps a project like Seam Security (http://seamframework.org/Seam3/SecurityModule).

As a developer, I hope JEE7 can remove some duplication and inconsistency among the specs in JEE6. for example:

1. the @Singleton, one from EJB and anther is from JSR330.

2. the Scope, JSR299 and JSR 330 include Sope concept, and I noticed there was a new "state" related specs proposed in JEE7, what is it for? I am very glad in JEE7 the JSF scope will move to CDI.  

3. ManagedBean, introduced in JEE6, but all beans in JEE are not refined from this concept, right? what is it ? If we need this concept, I hope all EG of JEE7 could seat together and discuss how to refine the existing beans to  ManagedBean,  such as general POJO, EJB, WebService, CDI Bean etc.

I'v got much pain in the last two years when I used JSF2 Ajax and CDI Bean together in my project, I hope this can be disappeared.

As a end user of JEE, I would like use JEE smoothly as Spring ecosystem, no conflict, no insistency, no gap between different specs, no war between different EG.
