Java EE 6 Approved - Glassfish v3 released on Dec. 10
I've blogged about Java EE 6 and Sun's reference implementation, Glassfish V3, a few times now so I thought I'd close the loop with the latest news. It was approved late last night, along with the accompanying JSRs: Servlet 3.0, JPA 2.0, EJB 3.1, Connector 1.6, CDI 1.0
The remaining component JSRs wrapped into the Java EE 6 specification had already been voted on and approved. There are many new features and APIs in key areas: JAX-RS, Dependency Injection, CDI, Bean Validation, and so on. Read my past blogs on the subject here:
Also, you should read Roberto Chinicci's blog, as he updates it with more pointers and information.
