Well since the time these post were made public I’ve been in touch with people interested in Java Desktop technologies; the same people that have built frameworks to simplify development of such applications.

Just recently I made a short presentation to the JCP EC; to let them about the plans of starting a JSR on this topic. If all goes well, that is, the proposal is accepted and the EC gives the green light then the Expert Group can be formed as early as late January 2015.
