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?
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.
The name Java EE will have to go — we knew that already. Now’s your chance to have a say in this matter: Everyone is invited to help choose a new name for Java EE. Names can be nominated by anyone in the community via this GitHub Issue record.
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.
There’s a lot going on in the Java EE world (or should we say EE4J?!) right now but perhaps we should stop thinking about what’s to come and focus on the Java EE 8 release. We talked with Java Champion Josh Juneau about his favorite features, the features he would have liked to see in Java EE 8, the new name and more.
JavaOne began yesterday, October 1. If you’re not there, you’ll probably want to watch the Java keynote today at 2 p.m. PT. We still have some hours left so let’s see what this year’s JavaOne is all about. We talked with Oracle’s Mike Lehmann and Donald Smith about what to expect from the conference and we got a sneak peek into the future of Java. In short, “it’s all about developer empowerment and simplification.”
Habemus nomen! Java EE has officially taken its first steps into the Eclipse Foundation. EE4J (Eclipse Enterprise for Java) is now a new top-level Eclipse project. But let’s go back to Java EE 8, “a critical release,” according to Reza Rahman, senior Java technologist, author and speaker. We talked about his favorite features, the features he would have liked to see in Java EE 8 and more.
Java EE 8 is here! One of the reasons why this release is special has to do with its future — from now on, it will function under the stewardship of the Eclipse Foundation. We talked with David Heffelfinger about his favorite features, the features he would have liked to see in Java EE 8 and more.
Oracle has just announced the general availability of Java SE 9, Java EE 8 and the Java EE 8 Software Development Kit (SDK). From now on, it’s all about faster releases and more open source engagement.
That was fast! It’s been less than a month since Oracle announced their intention to move Java EE technologies to an open source foundation and now Java EE has a new place to call home: the Eclipse Foundation. We talked with Rich Sharples, Senior Director of Product Management for Middleware at Red Hat about Java EE’s new home and whether it should be merged with Eclipse MicroProfile.
Discussions about Java EE‘s future are more intense than ever. We talked with Ivar Grimstad, Martijn Verburg, Reza Rahman and Josh Juneau about Oracle’s decision to move Java EE to an open source foundation and now it’s time to welcome another group of experts to weigh in on the latest developments.
Discussions about Java EE‘s future are more intense than ever. Was Oracle’s decision to look into moving Java EE technologies “to an open source foundation” a good one? If Java EE is moved to an open source foundation, which one is the most suitable? Should it be renamed? We invited Ivar Grimstad, Martijn Verburg, Reza Rahman and Josh Juneau to weigh in on Oracle’s decision.
