Is there a better way than the JCP?

[ via Don Park ]:

Elliotte Rusty Harold is asking if there’s a better way than the JCP:

On reviewing this, I think I’m struck by a fundamental flaw in the JCP for the first time. Sun is still mired in a 20th century, waterfall, big bang approach to development. There are at least three, probably more, different things going on in this process that could certainly be separated and developed independently.

Still I wonder if there’s a better way (and perhaps the open sourcing of the JDK might enable it).

It’s good to see people asking the right questions.
