Yasson and EclipseLink go to EE4J

I am happy to announce that we are planning to transfer Yasson and EclipseLink projects to EE4J. These will be one of the first projects transferred because they are a part of Eclipse Foundation already. I already posted announcement in EE4J community mailing list here:

https://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/ee4j-community/msg00341.html

The transfer will not affect any committer rights, but it may introduce some changes in web site URL, mailing lists, etc.
I’ll keep you updated about the progress.

JSON Support in Java EE 8

JSON support is an important part of Java EE. This session provides a deep dive into JSON-P and JSON-B APIs, explains how they are connected and can be used together. I will introduce and demonstrate new JSON-P features such as JSON Patch, JSON Pointer, and JSON Merge Patch as well as JSON-B features such as default and customized mapping, adapters, and serializers.

Samples repository is located here.

Introducing Yasson

I am glad to inform you JSON-B RI and EclipseLink projects have been successfully separated. It was not a union of heart, but more marriage of convenience. Both projects had the same committers. Therefore, JSON-B RI was started in a directory inside EclipseLink project. But when JSON-B RI project started to be more and more mature we started to realize that the idea of hosting it inside EclipseLink project was not so good. These projects have different release cycles and different committers. Currently all JSON-B RI committers are EclipseLink committers, but not vice versa. Also, it can change in future, when more JSONB-RI committers are added.
