Oracle announced in the Java EE community survey results that, in addition to withdrawing the JSRs for Management 2.0 (JSR 373), and JMS 2.1 (JSR 368), they are also “investigating a possible transfer of MVC to another community member or organization in order to complete JSR 371 as a stand-alone component.” Now it seems that its fate will be sealed on January 31.
In this video, Ondrej Mihalyi explores what has happened in the world of enterprise Java recently, including the progress of the Java EE 8 specifications and the features already provided by some interesting open-source projects. He also zooms in on the MicroProfile.io initiative and how its future direction can be formed with your contribution.
Oracle is officially withdrawing Management 2.0 (JSR 373) and JMS 2.1 (JSR 368). These changes reflect the importance ranking of these technologies in the Java EE 8 community survey.
I couldn’t attend this year’s JavaOne opening keynote because my schedule didn’t allow me to travel to San Francisco this time. What a pity. Luckily, the keynote was broadcasted via live-stream. Therefore I made myself comfortable in front of my home office screen — after all, 2.5 hours of news from the Java World were waiting for me…
Last week was the annual JavaOne conference in San Francisco. I had the opportunity to attend the conference and even had a chance to speak in a session — my session was titled “Java EE, Beyond the Basics.” This article summarizes what was presented at JavaOne regarding what’s coming in Java EE 8 and 9. Every single speaker made it a point to state that Java EE’s 8 and 9 plans are in early stages and this is all subject to change.
At the keynote of this JavaOne Oracle presented a long-awaited reaction to the progress of Java EE in form of a surprisingly extensive update to the future roadmap.
MicroProfile 1.0 is intentionally feature-constrained so that a broader community can define its roadmap. The parties involved (Red Hat, IBM, TomiTribe, Payara, LJC and now SouJava) have agreed on a base set of features that defines solid and stable roots on which to grow and have added multiple member organizations and contributors. But that’s not all.
It’s that time of the year again! JavaOne is up and running and we are making sure you get the latest scoop from Oracle’s finest. Find out everything you need to know about Java 9 and Java EE.
Java 9 is likely to receive a four-month extension, which means it may be launched in July 2017 and Java EE 8 may see the light of day at the end of next year. Now that Oracle is donating NetBeans to the Apache Foundation, they may have time on their hands but as Oracle spokesman Mike Moeller told The Register a couple of months ago, the plans for Java EE will be unveiled at the JavaOne conference. The countdown has begun.
The conclusions drawn at Java Community Process’ most recent Executive Committee Meeting did not help shed too much light on the future of Java EE or the (hopefully) upcoming Java EE 8, but we learned that Oracle is talking to large Java EE vendors, and will soon consult with community members such as Java Champions and Java User Groups.
Each Monday we take a step back and analyze what has happened in the previous week. Last week we presented the fifth release candidate of Angular 2, we shed some light on what Java Champion Jeff Genender thinks of Java EE 8 and we launched a microservices checklist. Our first interviewee was Viktor Farcic, Senior Consultant at CloudBees. But that’s not all.
Where does the future of Java EE lie? In the cloud? In the hands of Java EE Guardians or MicroProfile? We invited Jeff Genender, Java Champion and Apache Member, to talk about Java EE 8, the latest news and the initiatives that may or may not make a real change.
After Oracle’s president of product development Thomas Kurian told InfoWorld that the company has not abandoned Java EE and that it is planning to move it to the cloud, we asked Lukas Eder, a Java and SQL aficionado, to comment on the latest revelations about the battle for enterprise Java.
