Welcome to the thirty-eighth issue of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
Time for this week’s cake, or pie (chart) to be specific…
The current status for Jakarta EE 9 is that ten specifications have been approved, two ballots are ongoing and five are almost ready for ballot.
The only specifications that have not created a Pull Request yet are:
Jakarta Server Pages
Jakarta Standard Tag Library
Jakarta Server Faces
The list is getting shorter! If you are involved in any of these, please do go forward with creating the pull requests. They can be created as draft PRs and be updated along the way up to being ready for ballot. There is absolutely no reason to wait until everything is ready!
