Talk

Beyond Jakarta EE 8, by and for the Jakarta community

Conference
Server Side Java

Since the original 2017 announcement that Java EE was being open-sourced, vendors, along with the community and the Eclipse Foundation, have made that a reality with Jakarta EE 8, which is based on Java EE 8. Therefore, the next logical question is, “What’s next?”

The key aim of Jakarta EE from the outset has been to build a cloud native Java platform for developers today and into the future, addressing technologies such as Kubernetes and Istio as well as improvements in the language itself.

In this session moderated by the Eclipse Foundation, you will hear from some of the key contributors about the effort to define the path of Jakarta EE as well as their views on integrating technologies such as MicroProfile, their own focus areas, and what improvements are already in the works.
