The first phase here will be for the ASF to obtain a TCK license from 
Sun for this JSR. Your best contact for this is geirm at as 
he has been through it for many other projects including Geronimo.

Once that has been done, you and other project members will be able to 
run the TCK against a release candidate (or other build) to determine if 
it passes. Once all tests pass, you can release it as a certified binary.

Depending on the TCK license, people who actually use Sun's TCK code may 
need to enter into a non-disclosure agreement that says they will keep 
Sun's code, tests and the test results confidential - this only affects 
Sun's code and not Apache's. It sounds awkward but in practice works 
fairly smoothly.

Congratulations on getting this far and good luck with the certification
