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).
