Welcome to the seventy-first issue of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
Let’s look at Jakarta EE 10! By filtering on the
EE10 label in our GitHub issue tracker, you will find the list of topics currently under discussion. I would like to highlight a couple of the issues.
Jakarta EE 10 Direction Statement (#352) lists focus areas that we are working on in order to come up with a proper roadmap for the platform. The platform team has been tasked by the Jakarta EE Steering Committee to produce a statement of direction for the steering committee meeting on May 11, 2021. I think we are in pretty good shape, but it will most certainly be refined more in the platform call a couple of hours before the steering committee gathers.
Create a new core profile specification (#353) collects the discussion around creating a new Jakarta EE Core Profile. We have created the plan review record and expect the ballot for creation- and plan reviews to be started pretty soon. Check out the JESP Guide for information about what these review steps actually means.
Speaking about plan reviews, we have a lot of them going on right now. Just check out the list of pull requests for plans. The Jakarta EE 10 Plan Reviews project board shows the current status of the reviews as they flow through our process.
In addition to this, a project proposal for Jakarta Config is being drafted. I expect it to be made public for community review within short.
If you haven’t filled out the 2021 Jakarta EE Developer Survey yet, I hope you will take a couple of minutes required to provide us with valuable input in shaping the direction of Jakarta EE!
