Feedback on Java EE Documentation

 Hi All,

To expand on Reza's email last month, the Oracle *Java SE* documentation
team is seeking to build relationships with users who would like to provide
feedback about the Oracle JDK related product documentation on an on-going
basis.  If you have feedback about docs, this is the perfect opportunity.

The goal is to meet with users regularly (over webex) to understand what
documentation is used, usage patterns, what works, areas where
documentation / UA can be enhanced, and review improvements for future

If you are interested in providing ongoing feedback about documentation, or
know someone who is, please fill out this survey (or pass it on to them) by
April 18 to help the Java SE Documentation team frame future discussions
with you.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, contact
Sowmya Kannan at sowmya.kannan at oracle.com. The documentation team
appreciates your time.

 - Don

The Java EE documentation team is looking to identify a group of volunteers
who are willing to provide direct, ongoing feedback on Java EE
documentation (http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/7/index.html). The
documentation team will set up regular meetings with participants to:

* Measure the effectiveness of our current documentation and measure
improvement of effectiveness over time.
* Understand each participant’s top 10 requirements for improving product
documentation and user assistance.
* Review and evaluate early documentation design prototypes in development
for future releases (e.g., search improvements, library user interface
design updates, in-line documentation feedback models, and so forth).

In general, the documentation feedback sessions will be conducted in 1-hour
web conferences with our documentation team members.  No travel is
required.  Calls will be scheduled a few times a year at the convenience of
the participants.  There will also be follow-up email and surveys from the
documentation group as needed.

To participate in this effort to improve the effectiveness of Java EE
documentation, please respond this survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/
JavaEEdocumentation-CustomerSurvey) by March 17th.

P.S.: Just to be absolutely clear, you don't need to be an Oracle
"customer" to do this, just someone that cares enough about Java EE to help
improve it for the community :-).
