Java API for XML Signature
At the time of writing this chapter (March 2003), there exists no JCP-approved Java API for XML Signature. A Java Specification Request, JSR-105 titled XML Digital Signature APIs, was accepted by JCP members as early as March 2001, but the specification work is still incomplete. This JSR is currently under community review, meaning it is being reviewed by JCP member organizations. One hopes that by the time this book comes to market, the final specification will be ready and available for download.
 In June 2003, as this book goes to press, JSR 105 specification has become available for public review. Please visit the book's companion Web site, http://www.j2ee-security.net for more information.
