The draft specification for JSR 197, Generic Connection Framework Optional Package for the J2SE Platform, is available for public review. This JSR is to extend the JMX 1.0 specification, by adding client APIs. This package will permit applications that rely on the GCF in J2ME to migrate to J2SE.

This Public Review closes on April 25, 2003.

Here's an overview of the JSR:

The GCF Optional Package will soley consist of the package as defined in the J2ME Foundation Profile (JSR-46) specification. As defined in the Foundation Profile, this package is a superset of the same package as defined in the J2ME Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP, JSR-37) and the J2ME Connected, Limited Device Configuration (CLDC, JSR-30). Therefore, the GCF Optional Package will enable applications written to the APIs in any existing J2ME Profile to use these APIs in an identical manner in J2SE when the optional package is present.

Since the purpose of the GCF Optional Package is to enable compatibility from J2ME to J2SE, this JSR does not propose the addition of any functionality not already provided by the J2ME Foundation Profile in the package. However, specification improvements have been added to the GCF APIs in CLDC 1.1 (JSR-139), so these will be included in the proposed optional package specification as appropriate.

What do you think of this JSR?
