“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.
Java EE 8 is one step closer to reality. The drafts of the Java EE 8 Platform and Web Profile specification docs that should be submitted to the JCP for Proposed Final Draft have been published. Read on to find out what’s new.
NetBeans Dream Team member Nebrass Lamouchi wrote a tutorial on how to write a Java EE application using Spring Boot and Docker in NetBeans IDE but now it’s time to dive deeper into the topic and experiment with NetBeans IDE 8.2.
It’s safe to say that 2016 was not the best year for Java EE but 2017 looks promising already. Only two months have passed but we can see the finish line: the ownership of the MVC JSR has been transferred to the community, we have a schedule and we know what’s going on in Oracle’s “kitchen.”
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.
