“Think of Eclipse MicroProfile as two things: The project and the technology set”

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.

JavaOne 2017: What to expect this week

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.”

“Java EE 8 is a critical release”: Hits and misses, the way forward

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 moves to the Eclipse Foundation: “The Java EE community owns the future of Java EE”

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.

Crucial decision ahead

The future looks good for Java EE — 4 experts weigh in

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.

Post-Java EE 8 plans

Oracle is looking into opening up Java EE

“We believe that moving Java EE technologies to an open source foundation may be the right next step,” Java EE evangelist David Delabassee announced yesterday in a new blog post. Although Oracle is exploring moving Java EE technologies “to an open source foundation” *after* the delivery of Java EE 8, one cannot argue that this is a big step.
