Hi Woonsan,

thanks for contacting me, I appreciate that!

Sorry it took so long to respond - your mail somehow landed in the wrong
folder and I just found it today.

We have a JIRA for the porlet spec - see:
https://java.net/jira/browse/PORTLETSPEC3

I think that we should probably use that one for the spec itself and use
the Pluto Jira for issues concerning Pluto directly. Naturally, there will
be overlap, but I think we should try to manage that, and if it becomes too
unwieldy, we can make the necessary changes when the time comes. You are
highly welcome to follow the spec work on the java.net site. I'm looking
forward to your input when time allows.


Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Kind regards

Hi Martin,

I really like the idea to gather all the efforts to develop Portlet
Specification 3.0 together under Apache Portals Pluto.
I'm not really sure if PLUTO JIRA is good enough or we need another JIRA
project for the portlet spec itself (PORTLET?).
Anyway, I hope to see ideas/discussions with Apache Portals JIRA issues as
soon as possible.
It is difficult for me to join you more actively now, but I hope to join in
sharing ideas and discussions.

Cheers,

Woonsan

 Hi,

 I would like to announce the Portlet Specification 3.0 development effort
 to the Apache Pluto project.

 In the way of introduction - my name is Scott Nicklous, and I work for IBM
 in the WebSphere Portal development group. Late last year, there was
 thought about an effort to create the next version of the portlet
 specification. I submitted a proposal to the JCP organization, it got
 accepted, and now we have a JSR 362 Portlet Specification 3.0 effort up
 and
 running.

 The specification effort is at in an early stage. Actually, the JSR 362 EG
 is currently talking about errata for the JSR 286 specification that need
 to be addressed. We haven't yet begun discussion of new topics, so now
 would still be a good time to get involved. We have several web sites that
 you can visit to get an overview of what we want to accomplish and what we
 have done so far.

 * The JCP organization main page for JSR 362:
 http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=362

 * On the JSR 362 project page, you can find high-level bullet items of
 proposed topics: https://java.net/projects/portletspec3.

 * For now, at least, we will be developing the Portlet Specification 3
 interfaces using Github as a source repository:
 https://github.com/msnicklous/portletspec3 . We want to start with the
 repository for the interface code on github because several of the JSR 362
 EG members (including myself!) have not been active on Apache and in
 particular are not committers to the Apache Portals project , but are
 active on github. Being hosted on github will make it easier for all EG
 members to make contributions.

 With the Apache Portals project hosting the Pluto Reference Implementation
 and interface code for the previous JSR 286 & JSR 168 versions of the
 portlet specification, I think it would be very good if members of the
 Apache Portals project would participate in the development of the Portlet
 Specification Version 3.0.

 I would also like to address hosting for the JSR 362 work. There is a
 near-term and longer-term component to this question.

 In the near term there is need for hosting the evolving interface code
 that
 will eventually become the Portlet Specification 3.0 interface. To begin
 with, there are changes to be made that involve clarifications and
 corrections to the JSR 286 specification.  Later, changes and additions
 will need be made to address new technical themes. The interface code for
 the current JSR 286 specification is hosted in the Apache Portals project
 SVN repository under portlet_spec/portlet-api_2.0_spec. The JSR 362
 interface code is currently hosted on github, but eventually I think it
 should be hosted under the Apache Portals project, since versions 1.0 &
 2.0
 of the spec are already hosted here. I would be interested in your ideas
 about when & how the interface code should be hosted on Apache.

 In the longer term, I would like to explore the possibility of hosting the
 JSR 362 Portlet Specification 3.0 reference implementation and TCK under
 the Pluto project. Would you be interested in hosting this and
 participating in the development of the JSR 362 RI & TCK?  Since the JSR
 362 effort is at an early stage, it will probably be some time before any
 work would start, but I wanted get your ideas on this early on.

 There would be several ways of getting involved:

 1) You can follow the deliberations of the JSR 362 EG by keeping up to
 date
 with the project website and subscribing to the JSR 362 Observers mailing
 list at: https://java.net/projects/portletspec3/lists . The
 jsr362-observers list is open to all, and all posts to the jsr362-experts
 list are automatically mirrored to the observers list, so you won't miss
 anything by subscribing to that list. The project site also hosts the
 current version of the spec itself along with accompanying documentation
 (have alook at the wiki and download pages on that site).

 2) You may wish to become members of the JSR 362 Expert group. There are
 certain formalities involved, since JCP processes have to be followed, but
 if you are interested, I would be happy to explore this possibility with
 you.

 3) You can post your ideas for new features here, or send them to me. I
 see
 that there is an issue tracker for Pluto, but I have to admit that I
 haven't examined the items to determine whether it contains new feature
 requests or potential spec corrections that the JSR 362 EG needs to take
 into account (I'm new to Apache, so please bear with me).

 I would be very interested in your ideas for improvements and new features
 for the Portlet Specification 3.0 and also  in your views on the
 organizational topics mentioned above.

 I hope this mail finds your interest, and I look forward to working with
 you.
