Welcome to the sixty-second issue of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
One of the major changes introduced with Jakarta EE over how it used to be is that the TCKs are available for free to anyone that wants to certify their implementation. I described how to do this in Compatible Implementations.
In parallel with the work on Jakarta EE 9.1, the individual specifications plans for future releases. Some of the teams are setting up ad-hoc or regular calls in addition to discussing on the mailing lists. In order to have a common calendar to keep track of these calls, we have created the Jakarta EE Specifications Calendar. We encourage the teams to publish their meetings on this calendar. This will make it easier for the community to attend calls they are interested in.
JavaLand 2021 is coming up next week. It will be an online two-day conference happening on March 16 and 17. I have one Jakarta EE talk scheduled. I will also co-speak Mobile Java Web Applications with MVC and OpenDDR with Werner Keil. There is also a Jakarta EE panel scheduled.
That’s it for this week. Hope you enjoyed it, and see you again next week!
