> This is an informal "press release" to let you know that JDOM was
> accepted yesterday by the Java Community Process (JCP) as a Java
> Specification Request (JSR-102).  Members of the JCP Executive Committee
> supporting the effort include Apache, Borland, Caldera, Cisco, HP, IBM,

> JDOM is an API for easy and efficient reading, manipulation, and writing
> of XML documents and XML data.  JDOM is already a popular open source
> product in beta release at http://jdom.org, and this JSR will be the
> process to define its "release 1.0" form.
> Putting JDOM under the oversight of the JCP as a JSR will facilitate
> JDOM's corporate adoption and open the door for JDOM to be incorporated
> into the core Java Platform.  JDOM will still be released as open source
> software, and technical discussion will continue to take place on public
> mailing lists.  I am the Specification Lead for the JDOM JSR and am
> working now to set up a formal Expert Group.
