Jakarta EE/MicroProfile Alignment Survey Results!
The results of the Jakarta EE/MicroProfile alignment survey are summarized here.
Your Input Needed to Determine Path for Jakarta EE/MicroProfile Alignment
The Cloud Native for Java (CN4J) Alliance has recently been formed to promote better alignment between Jakarta EE and MicroProfile. One of the key issues to sort out is how Jakarta EE can consume MicroProfile specifications (such as MicroProfile Configuration). There are several alternatives as to how this could be done. The following is aContinue reading “Your Input Needed to Determine Path for Jakarta EE/MicroProfile Alignment”

EE4J: An Opportunity for Reconciliation in the Java Ecosystem?
This post was written by Jean-François James, a Java EE Guardian . I have a dream: that one day the whole Java community would join forces to strengthen its position on server-side applications where movements such as containerization, microservices, cloud-native or serverless are challenging its paradigms. As explained in my previous post, Java EE (Enterprise Edition) won’t go beyondContinue reading “EE4J: An Opportunity for Reconciliation in the Java Ecosystem?”
