Jakarta EE 9 changed its package namespace from javax.* to jakarta.*. This may sound like a trivial change that mostly affects Jakarta EE. So, why should Spring developers care?
As it turns out, the namespace changes ripple throughout the entire Java ecosystem. And Spring is no exception. Spring Framework 6 and Spring Boot 3 raised their baseline to Jakarta EE 9 API level which is supported by Tomcat 10 and Jetty 11 for example.
Attending this session will teach you how to make this migration as smooth as possible. A live coding demo will take you through the steps involved, and point out where to pay special attention.
We will also briefly examine some of the changes planned for Jakarta EE 11 that will prepare you for what to expect in future versions of Spring. All done with Java 21!
Jakarta EE 11 will be the first release of Jakarta EE after the new release cadence was introduced.
The goal is to release a version of Jakarta EE around six months after an LTS release of Java.
With Java 21 released in September 2023, Jakarta EE 11 is scheduled to be released around March 2024.
What are the updates? Are there any new specifications introduced? What about removals? Will there be another namespace change? How will the impact of this release be on other frameworks and technologies, such as Spring, Apache Tomcat, Hibernate, and more?
Come to this session to get all these questions and more answered to be prepared for Jakarta EE 11.
In this BOF, we will go shortly through the status of Jakarta EE, where it came from, and where it goes. You will learn how you can participate in the evolution of Jakarta EE. Look at it as an informal Jakarta EE community gathering where you can meet and interact with many of the Jakarta EE participants in the industry.
