It was originally intended that the httpserver API would be part of the
(actually in the package suggested above) but some members of the
umbrella JSR for
jdk 6 didn't agree with including a http server API in Java SE. So, it
was dropped from the platform.
And that is why we put it in com.sun.
Personally, I wouldn't have any problem with putting it back in the
platform, though presumably
this question of whether it blurs the line between Java SE and EE would
have to be addressed.
(I suggest we continue the conversation exlcusively on net-dev)
