Welcome to the sixty-third issue of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
We have tried to keep the overhead to a minimum with the Eclipse Foundation Specification Process (EFSP). Compared to other specification processes, it is pretty lightweight. Both the Jakarta EE Specification Process (JESP) and the MicroProfile Specification Process (MPSP) adopts the EFSP with a couple of additions that are so similar that they are barely distinguishable.
While knowing the process is good, every developer does not need to know the nitty-gritty details. That is why we have created a step-by-step guide to help developers on Jakarta EE specification projects with the steps of the JESP. Take a look at the JESP Guide to check it out!
JavaLand 2021 is happening this week! We have a lot of great content and community activities to look forward to. Here is a pointer to some of the talks on Wednesday, March 16 by Emily Jiang, Ondrej Mihalyi, and yours truly.
On Wednesday, March 17, I have a joint talk with Werner Keil where we use Jakarta MVC in one of the demos. Directly after, Emily Jiang and Ed Burns show how to port an application from Spring Boot to MicroProfile.
At the end, I want to point you to the article Don’t replace Spring Boot with Quarkus, replace it with Wildfly by Hélio Bessoni Rodrigues. This is an excellent write-up comparing microservices with modular monoliths that encourages developers to build software that lasts rather than being led by hypes and trends..
