Jakarta EE: Present & Future

Java EE has been re-branded to Jakarta EE and moved to truly open source governance under the Eclipse Foundation. This session overviews what this means, offers a brief tour of the initial releases - Jakarta EE 8/Jakarta EE 9, explores current state and looks to what the future might bring including some key challenges. We will also discuss how these challenges can be overcome through active community engagement.

The technical contents of Jakarta EE 8 is mostly the same as Java EE 8. Jakarta EE 9 further brings the platform into the open by decoupling from the javax namespace to the jakarta namespace. Jakarta EE 10 opens the possibilities for many long pending innovations in key technologies like Jakarta Security, Concurrency, Messaging, REST, Persistence, Batch, NoSQL, MVC and Configuration.

You should come to this session with your thinking caps on and your sleeves rolled up. There is much to help move forward together that really matters.
