This week Mike Milinkovich announced that Oracle and the Eclipse Foundation agreed that the javax package cannot be evolved by Jakarta EE community and Java trademarks cannot be used in Jakarta EE specifications. How critical is it to Jakarta EE community? Can Jakarta EE survive without javax namespace? Here are my thoughts about it.Continue reading
I am very excited to bring you some great news. Today Eclipse GlassFish 5.1 has finally been released and available
on Maven Central:
or can be downloaded from Eclipse web site:
A huge milestone has been reached. Eclipse GlassFish 5.1 is a pure Eclipse release. All components formerly supplied by Oracle have been transferred to the Eclipse Foundation from Oracle Java EE repositories, have passed the Eclipse release review, and have been released to Maven Central with new licensing terms. Eclipse GlassFish 5.1 has passed all CTS/TCK tests (run on Oracle infrastructure) and has been certified as Java EE 8 compatible.Continue reading
We have a Christmas gift from Oracle Prague team. After weeks of hard work EclipseLink and Jersey project have been integrated to Eclipse GlassFish 5.1. Now we have all EE4J components integrated and integrations project finished: https://github.com/orgs/eclipse-ee4j/projects/6
It’s a huge step forward! We are very close to Eclipse GlassFish final release planned in January 2019. But there is still work to do. Now the goal is to produce a green CTS run. The progress can be tracked here: https://github.com/orgs/eclipse-ee4j/projects/8
The idea of transferring Java EE sources to the Eclipse Foundation was announced at the last Oracle JavaOne conference. The year has passed and in this article I will try to summarize what was done during this year and where we are now.
First of all, I am happy to announce that
Eclipse GlassFish RC1 is released!
It’s available for download here. This release is not final. It’s a milestone release with a purpose of indicating progress and providing developers the preview of the final product to play with, test it and provide feedback.Continue reading
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.
Disclaimer: This is not an official EE4J PMC opinion.
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.Continue reading
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.
