For a while now, I have been thinking of posting more regular updates about stuff going on in the Jakarta EE community. Kind of what Josh Long does with his “This Week in Spring” series. Being a big fan of Josh and the work he is doing in the community, I am not ashamed of copying him.
The goal is weekly updates, but being realistic I leave out the cadence from the title. So welcome to the first issue of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
The year 2020 is still young and pristine, most members enjoying a well-deserved vacation after a busy 2019.
Worth mentioning, though, is the ongoing discussion regarding the establishment of a Working Group for MicroProfile. There are currently two proposals on the table, the MicroProfile Working Group Proposal and the Cloud Native for Java Working Group Proposal.
At the end of last year, a release plan for Jakarta EE 9 was made available by the Jakarta EE Platform Project. The work with this release will start up again next week with weekly calls. These calls are open for anyone. The details can be found in the EE4J PMC Calendar.
Hope you enjoyed this short update!
