Do you know that many famous people were born at the end of April? I’ll give you some samples. April 21 is the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II; Vladimir Lenin was born on April 22, William Shakespeare on April 21, and Adolf Hitler on April 20. Maybe I shouldn’t include Hitler here, but he had a huge influence on 20th century history. Why do I mention this? Because on April 24, 2018, Jakarta EE was born. Using mathematical induction, we can predict that this newborn child will have a great influence on the Java world.

This document is a product of my discussion with Oracle Prague development team consisting of engineers actively working on EclipseLink, Yasson. JSON-P, JPA, Metro, Jersey and other projects about technical directions each EE4J project should follow to make Jakarta EE successful.
Some people were complained that it’s difficult to find information about all Jakarta EE projects and their transfer status. I collected this information in the table below. For today it’s the most complete and accurate data. Links points to a project home page if the project is created and to a proposal if the project has not been created yet.
