Hashtag Jakarta EE #76

Welcome to the seventy-sixth issue of Hashtag Jakarta EE!

One of the goals for the Jakarta EE Platform project is to define a predictable way the Jakarta EE specifications are aligned with Java SE. For example: Which Java SE version should Jakarta EE 10 require? This is one of the questions currently being discussed on the weekly Jakarta EE Platform calls. We have narrowed it down to three options that are currently being voted on:

Option 1: source=Java SE 11, bin=Java SE 11, TCK=Java SE 11+
Java SE 11 as source/language level and binary level for all API JARs. Compatible Implementations are free to pass TCKs using any Java SE version at 11 or higher.

Option 2: source=Java SE 11, bin=Java SE 17, TCK=Java SE 17+
Java SE 11 as source/language level and Java SE 17 as the binary level for all API JARs. Compatible Implementations are free to pass TCKs using any Java SE version at 17 or higher.

Option 3: source=Java SE 17, bin=Java SE 17, TCK=Java SE 17+
Java SE 17 as source/language level and binary level for all API JARs. Compatible Implementations are free to pass TCKs using any Java SE version at 17 or higher.

Everyone is encouraged to chime in on the mailing list with their opinion. Remember to mark the committer flag in your vote to true only if you are a committer on the Jakarta EE Platform project.

The intention of the Jakarta EE Core Profile specification is to target smaller runtimes and allow them to be certified as Jakarta EE compatible products. The set of Jakarta EE specifications that will be included in the profile has not been defined yet, but here is the latest suggestion for how it could potentially look like.

Do check out the Dismiss the Myths: Get to know Jakarta EE (Java EE) webinar series from Payara to get some common myths dismissed. Among other things, you will experience that Java is highly relevant, and keeps up-to-date with the changes in the IT world. And that there is a bright future for Jakarta EE!

The Call for Proposals for EclipseCon 2021 ends on Tuesday, June 15, so there is still time for you to submit your Jakarta EE talk to have a chance of being a speaker!
