"Does Java EE 7 need another data caching specification?
"Red Hat thinks so, and today submitted a new request to the
Java Community Process (JCP) to push their data caching ideas
forward into Java EE 7. The JCP approved JSR 342 last month,
getting the ball rolling for the full creation of the Java EE 7
specifications. "The themes of Java EE 7 are all about continuing
to ease development and making Java cloud ready," Craig Muzilla,
vice president of Red Hat's Middleware Business Unit said.
