Jakarta Community Acceptance Testing (JCAT)

Today the Jakarta EE Ambassadors are announcing the start of the Jakarta EE Community Acceptance (JCAT) Testing initiative. The purpose of this initiative is to test Jakarta EE 9/9.1 implementations testing using your code and/or applications. Although Jakarta EE is extensively tested by the TCK, container specific tests, and QA, the purpose of JCAT is for developers to test the implementations.

Jakarta EE 9/9.1 did not introduce any new features. In Jakarta EE 9 the APIs changed from javax to jakarta. Jakarta EE 9.1 raised the supported floor to Java 11 for compatible implementations. So what are we testing?

  • Testing individual spec implementations standalone with the new namespace. 
  • Deploying existing Java EE/Jakarta EE applications to EE 9/9.1.
  • Converting Java EE/Jakarta EE applications to the new namespace.
  • Running applications on Java 11 (Jakarta EE 9.1)

Participating in this initiative is easy:

  1. Download a Jakarta EE implementation:
    1. Java 8 / Jakarta EE 9 Containers
    2. Java 11+ / Jakarta EE 9.1 Containers
  2. Deploy code:
    1. Port or run your existing Jakarta EE application
    2. Test out a feature using a starter template
