The EE.next brand name saga —which started in late 2017— is slowly coming to an end. The community was invited to suggest a new name for Java EE and now it’s time to pick the winner: Jakarta EE or Enterprise Profile. What will it be?
The draft of the EE.next Working Group charter is now available for community review. You have at least 30 days to give your comments and feedback on the firstname.lastname@example.org mail list but you are advised to read the FAQ first.
The great Java EE migration is hitting its stride as various bits and bobs begin the shuffle from Oracle to the Eclipse Foundation. Since there’s so much happening right now, we’re checking in to see how things are going on and what’s next for EE4J, including a quick look at Grizzly NIO.
Oracle’s Will Lyons has responded to the Java EE Guardians’ open letter asking the company to allow the use of “Java EE” and “javax” packages for EE4J. Although Oracle will not allow the new platform to retain the Java EE name, they seem to have agreed to one of the requests.
EclipseLink and Eclipse Yasson are officially the first two EE4J projects. That’s not all, though: there’s a new project called Eclipse Ozark which will (also) fall under EE4J.
Hazelcast has officially joined the Eclipse Foundation. Given their work on Eclipse MicroProfile and the fact that Oracle has moved stewardship of Java EE technologies to the Foundation, Hazelcast felt it was the right time to become even more involved. We talked with Greg Luck, the CEO of Hazelcast about their primary focus, the future of the open source Enterprise Java and more.
The merry migration from Java EE into the Eclipse Foundation continues with the announcement of nine new project proposals for the still-unnamed collaboration.
A lot has happened lately in the Eclipse MicroProfile world: they revamped the logo, released 1.2 and welcomed Oracle to its community. JAXenter editor Gabriela Motroc caught up with Graham Charters and Katherine Stanley at JAX London 2017 to talk about the benefits Java EE brings to a microservices architecture, Java EE 8 and the future of both EE4J and Eclipse MicroProfile.
If you want to hear more about Eclipse and Java 9, Eclipse MicroProfile, EE4J or OpenJ9, you’ve come to the right place. We’re summarizing some of the sessions and keynotes happening as we speak at EclipseCon Europe 2017.
IBM and Red Hat have recently expressed their support for Eclipse Enterprise for Java —we’re still getting used to EE4J but the good news is that there’s now a FAQ which answers all the right questions — what, why, who and where it’s going. Let’s have a look at this new top-level Eclipse project.
