Java EE was not advancing fast enough. Enterprise Java was being left in the dust in the microservices development environment. Customers were wondering when Java EE 8 was going to complete and what it was going to contain. And, what comes after Java EE? The answer is the Eclipse MicroProfile and Eclipse Jakarta EE projects.
In this session we will discuss and demonstrate the MicroProfile programming model for developing microservice applications. Although MicroProfile is currently based on Java EE technologies, the expectation is that this will evolve to using the corresponding Jakarta EE technologies. Thus, the synergy between these two Eclipse projects is already starting.
We will also discuss the current state of the Jakarta EE effort. Demonstrating the building and testing of various Jakarta EE (EE4J) projects is also on the agenda (the exact content to be determined based on the state of the transition efforts).
Jakarta EE is taking over the relay baton from Java EE as a community effort in the Eclipse Foundation with the focus on enabling community-driven collaboration and open innovation for the cloud. The transfer of the Java EE technologies to Eclipse Foundation also opens up for very interesting synergies and collaboration with the Eclipse MicroProfile projects. This session will give you an update on the current state of Jakarta EE and look ahead at how the continued development of the platform will look like.
In this session, you will be able to ask questions to a panel consisting of a number of participants in the Jakarta EE Working Group.
The informal Jakarta EE community gathering of like minded developers, spec. leads and Jakarta EE representatives from different companies. Come to our session to discuss the new home of Cloud Native Java!
