Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we published a new double issue of JAX Magazine, interviewed Red Hat’s Martin Klaus, learned about Jakarta EE 8’s release date, and lots more. Let’s have a look.


New JAX Mag issue: Exploring the IoT universe

We’ve prepared a double dose of goodness for you with this special double issue! We’ve dedicated one half to talking about the IoT universe’s growth and dominance, and the other half to JAX London, bringing together features from experts innovating in the fields of Java, microservices, continuous delivery and DevOps.

Check out the latest issue of JAX Magazine here.

OpenShift 4 interview: “Operators are a very powerful construct”

We caught up with Martin Klaus, Senior Director Red Hat Cloud Platforms, and asked what’s new in the latest version of the enterprise Kubernetes platform and how it differs from other solutions.

 Jakarta EE 8 got a release date

It’s been almost two years since it was announced that Java EE would be moving to the Eclipse Foundation with a new name: Jakarta EE. And now, at last, we have an expected release date for the first version under the Eclipse Foundation’s banner, Jakarta EE 8.

“Expect serverless to become more mainstream”

Serverless is a hotly discussed topic right now. We caught up with Lee Atchison, Senior Director, Cloud Architecture at New Relic to discuss what serverless means to him, how it’s changing the way applications are developed and what implications serverless could have for infrastructure in the future.

Java goes Git: Proposal to migrate OpenJDK

Project Skara’s goal in July last year was to look into the viable SCM alternatives to Mercurial. It looks like Git is to be OpenJDK’s new home, at least following JEP 357’s proposal.

Take a closer look at the JEP 357 proposal here.
