This issue of JAXmag is dedicated to the latest industry standard for enterprise Java computing: Java EE 6. The previous release, Java EE 5, had set the foundations for reducing complexity, through its adoption of annotations and POJO programming, but Java EE 6 continued this streamlining process by removing outdated APIs. Java EE 6 also introduced sub-sets of Java EE APIs, 'Pro les,' in response to the criticism that Java EE was too large, especially for developers working with small to medium Java web applications. Despite some critics' complaints that Java EE 6 wasn't lightweight enough, Java EE 6 has seen increasing adoption rates since its initial release. However, this latest version of the Java EE 6 platform had a controversial (and rather familiar) start, with JSR-316 being at the centre of two years of discussions and debate. When it was  nally approved in December 2009, some of the JCP members (IBM, Intel, Red Hat) who voted in favour of the JSR registered that they were voting for the technology, and not the technology's licensing terms. Java Enterprise Computing But, after its controversial beginnings, Java EE 6 has been successfully adopted by a list of application servers. JBoss Application Server 6.0 of cially supports the Java EE 6 Web Pro le, and Oracle WebLogic Application Server, IBM Web- Sphere Application Server v8 and JEUS 7 are currently in development for full Java EE 6 certi cation. In this issue of JAXmag, we introduce readers to the various technologies that comprise Java EE 6, with the 'Java EE 6 Overview' article by Caucho Technology engineer Reza Rahman. We'll examine some of the technologies that occupy the Java EE 6 space, with articles on JBoss' Arquillian integration testing tool, and the Siwpas application server, and look ahead to the relationship between enterprise Java and the cloud in Ales Justin's 'Java EE inside GAE' article. If this issue leaves you hungry for more Java EE-related knowledge, be sure to check out JAX London's dedicated Java EE track, moderated by Oracle's Arun Gupta. Hope you enjoy the issue!
