Eclipse Tyrus

Basics
This proposal is in the Project Proposal Phase (as defined in the Eclipse Development Process) and is written to declare its intent and scope. We solicit additional participation and input from the community. Please login and add your feedback in the comments section.
Background: 

This project is created as part of the process of transitioning Oracle Java EE 8 and GlassFish technologies to the Eclipse Foundation as described in The Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Top Level Project Charter (https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j/charter).

Scope: 

Eclipse Tyrus provides an implementation for Java API for WebSocket, starting from the specification defined by JSR-356.

The API and TCK for WebSocket is part of the Eclipse Project for WebSocket proposal.

Description: 

Eclipse Tyrus is an open source JSR 356 - Java API for WebSocket implementation for easy development of WebSocket applications. WebSocket protocol defined by IETF provides bi-directional communication between the server and the remote host. The pros are mainly the ability to communicate both ways, low latency and small communication overhead. Therefore Tyrus and WebSocket in general are suitable for web applications that require sending a huge volume of relatively small messages like online games or market ticker broadcasting.

Why Here?: 

The top level EE4J project was created consistent with the direction described in The Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Top Level Project Charter (https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j/charter).   This project is created under the top level EE4J project as one of Oracle Java EE 8 and GlassFish technologies being transitioned to the Eclipse Foundation.
