Let’s celebrate Java – three times!
It’s that time again: A new Java version is here! Java 13 was launched as planned, six months after the release of Java 12, and again it has some interesting features on board. In this issue of Jax Magazine, we’ve covered them for you in detail.
The good news doesn’t end there, as JavaFX 13 has also been released. The UI toolkit is no longer included in the JDK but has adjusted its new version releases to the new Java release cadence. Find out what’s new here!
Last but not least: Jakarta EE, the follow-up project of Java EE, has announced its first release under the umbrella of the Eclipse Foundation. We got hold of the executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, Mike Milinkovich, and asked him about the current status of Jakarta EE.
