On the first ever DevoXX US in San Jose, California, Leo and Otavio presented JSR 363.
After DevoXX UK and Belgium in 2015 and a related session Werner gave while DevoXX Morocco was still called JMaghreb, this marked 4 out of currently 6 DevoXX venues with a session on JSR 363. Although at Geecon and not DevoXX Poland, Werner also presented Standards for Java Embedded in Krakow, so that way it's actually 5 out of 6 with only Paris missing ;-)
We hope, over time some of those users will migrate to JSR 363 where can get support for an official standard. A very large number of those 100k plus downloads seems related to GeoAPI and various products or projects implementing and extending it. An upcoming version of GeoAPI should migrate to JSR 363, so where those downstream projects started using new versions, we shall sooner or later see those numbers shift towards JSR 363.
After meeting for a JCP EC F2F / EG F2F for the last time (because the EG officially no longer exists after JSR 363 went final), Leonardo, Otavio and Werner presented JSR 363 during a JavaOne BOF (BOF5981) on Sep 19th, right before the annual JCP Party.
Like Adam Bien the year before Werner won a JCP Award but could not receive it right away at the JCP Party because of the BOF.
Following the JCP Award Otavio won as Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant 2014 and the Most Significant JSR Award 2015 this was the 3rd JCP Award in a row either the JSR 363 Expert Group or one of its members had won :-)
Leo gave another presentation on IoT standards at JavaOne 2016
Most other artifacts like unit systems, libraries or uom-demos got corresponding tags like "Final Release" or "Final equivalent" buiding upon 1.0. All of them except demos can also be found either on MavenCentral, Bintray JCenter or both.
Most other artifacts like unit systems, libraries or uom-demos got corresponding tags like "Public Final Draft" or "PFD equivalent" buiding upon the PFD stage JSR. All of them except demos can also be found either on MavenCentral, Bintray JCenter or both.
Leonardo, Werner and Otavio met for an EG F2F in Rio de Janeiro. As the Public Review Ballot of JSR 363 was just about to conclude, Leonardo and Werner gave a Spec Lead presentation to the EC answering questions of EC members prior to their vote.
After the presentation great host TOTVS invited attendees to a ride up Sugarloaf Montain with the cable car, many probably know from the James Bond movie "Moonraker".
Although some EC members had to travel back a bit longer or later than expected due to Blizzard Jason causing major traffic disruption, all but 2 members were able to vote on the Public Review of JSR 363 the following Monday and it passed with only "Yes" votes by all who voted.
Most other artifacts like unit systems, libraries or uom-demos got corresponding tags like "Public Review equivalent" buiding upon the PR stage JSR. All of them except demos can also be found either on MavenCentral or Bintray JCenter.
On the last day of DevoXX BE 2015 in Antwerp, after many had already seen cutting edge QS and Embedded technologies in James Bond Spectre and a literal hands-on IoT session by Yara and Vinicius, Werner presented The First IoT JSR: Units of Measurement. Unfortunately, JSR 363 EG members and co-speakers Mohamed and Otavio could not make it due to travel budget constraints. While two Cloud/Big Data sessions by both Google and Microsoft as well as a "CSI: Cyber" style security talk by highly acclaimed Security consultant and Hacker Dan Tentler drew many attendees to the other 3 rooms, it still ended up with a decent crowd, exceeding all other JSR 363 related talks of 2015, including a similar DevoXX UK session in London.
For everyone who did not attend the session or wants to watch it again, here's the YouTube recording:
After some EG members met at the end of the previous week for the JCP EC F2F Otavio, Leonardo and Werner demonstrated JSR 363 in two Hackergarten sessions at JavaOne 2015. Running on Java SE 8 on Intel Edison as well as Java ME 8 Embedded on a Freescale board.
