For many years, Java EE has been the de facto standard for delivering secure, robust, scalable multi-platform applications and services. The world’s leading innovators in Java are collaborating at the open source Eclipse Foundation to advance enterprise Java technologies to support the migration of mission-critical workloads to the cloud. Jakarta EE is taking over the relay baton from Java EE as a community effort in the Eclipse Foundation with the focus on enabling community-driven collaboration and open innovation for the cloud. The transfer of the Java EE technologies to the Eclipse Foundation also opens up for very interesting synergies and collaboration with other open source technologies for Cloud Native Java such as Eclipse MicroProfile. This session will give you an update on the current state of Jakarta EE and look ahead at how the continued development of the platform will look like.
