JAX Magazine — August 2016 — Quo vadis Java EE?
Discussions about the future of Java EE are starting to intensify as we get closer to the moment of truth. In this issue you’ll find everything you need to know about the current state of Java EE, but that’s not all! The cloud, the marriage between software development and banking, Bitcoin and TrumpScript are all in. Take a look!
The Java EE dispute is still much like a smoldering fire even though Oracle tried to put negligence rumors to rest when it revealed that it has not given up on enterprise Java. JAXenter has closely followed the Java EE narrative, but the climax is still not upon us. Who will win? And more importantly, is there enough room for more than one winner?
It appears that all roads lead to the cloud and this issue is no exception. While Oracle indicates that it will move Java EE to the cloud, we promise to teach you how to move your business to a private cloud and openly talk about the problems of cloud storage services. But enough about that! Don’t miss the second part of our microservices checklist and make sure to read about the needs and expectations of mobile users and how to meet them. We’ve got you covered if you want to know where Bitcoin stands post-halving and if you want to learn more about software development in banking or dive into the Eclipse plugin for named queries.
On a funnier note, we have all the details on the (in)famous TrumpScript. Curious yet?
