It’s been a while since the last major Java release and expectations were naturally high for the upcoming release. The Java 7 release initially included many JSRs with exciting features, like support for closures, which were later deferred to Java 8 in order to release JSRs that are already done. This effectively diluted what is now offered in Java 7 and has left some disappointed. The Java language has undergone major changes since I started using it in 1998. Most of the changes were driven by the Java Community Process (JCP) which was established in 1998 as a formal and transparent process to let interested individuals and entities participate and influence how the language should evolve. This is done through the submission of a change request, known as Java Specification Request (JSR), followed by a review and a voting process. Changes or enhancements made to the language can be usually tracked back to a JSR where they were originally put forward for review. For example, the addition of Generics in Java 5 was done via JSR 14.
