Today a new community service was launched on the java.sun.com site, called Ask the Experts. It allows you to post questions on a particular topic and get answers from Sun experts on that topic. Questions that you post are collected daily and sent to the experts. The Q&As are then shown in a transcript on the java.sun.com site. The first Ask the Experts session is on the Java Business Integration Specification (JSR 208). The experts are the spec co-leads, Peter Walker and Ron Ten-Hove. If you have a question about the JBI spec, go to the Ask the Experts page (http://java.sun.com/developer/community/askxprt/index.html), and click on the "Submit your question" link at the bottom of the page. You can submit questions to Peter and Ron through August 17.
