Description
JSR 255 is planning to use "//" in the domain part of an ObjectName as a separator for "cascading".  This is scheduled for Dolphin (Java SE 7), but the ObjectName spec should already be updated in Mustang to anticipate it.  It should say, e.g., "the domain part of the ObjectName should not contain the string "//", which is reserved for future use."

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

Spec change only, does not affect existing behavior or require new tests.

EVALUATION

Proposed change is now: "It is recommended that the domain part of the ObjectName should not contain the string "//", which is reserved for future use."  This makes it clearer that it is legal but inadvisable to use "//" in the domain name.
