Welcome to the fourteenth issue of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
It has been an interesting week in the Jakarta EE community. The work with Jakarta EE 9 makes progress, but we still need any help we can get from the community. Make sure you tune in to the Jakarta EE Update Call on Wednesday for more information about how you can help!
The ongoing thread on the Jakarta EE Community mailing list regarding creating a fork of MicroProfile Config as a basis for a Jakarta Config specification goes on. Please make sure to chime in with your opinion there.
I think this discussion shows that it is important that Jakarta EE states how the technical alignment with MicroProfile (as well as other potential candidates for standardization) should be from a Jakarta EE standpoint. The MicroProfile community selected a Pull approach, which in plain words means that they will not initiate any standardization efforts with Jakarta EE, or anywhere else. The Jakarta EE working group should come up with a similar strategy, or statement, for how the technical alignment should be from the Jakarta EE side in order to end this confusion.
In the end, a reminder that the nomination period for the Jakarta EE Working Group election ends on April 10, 2020.
