Welcome to issue number one hundred and nineteen of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
First of all, I want to give provide the latest status for Jakarta EE 10. You are probably getting used to this section by now, so no surprises here. The release reviews for Jakarta Persistence 3.1, Jakarta RESTful Web Services 3.1, Jakarta XML Binding 4.0, and Jakarta XML Web Services 4.0 all concluded this week. This means that these four specifications join Jakarta Activation 2.1, Jakarta Annotations 2.1, Jakarta Batch 2.1, Jakarta Interceptors 2.1, Jakarta JSON Binding 3.0, Jakarta JSON Processing 2.1, Jakarta Mail 2.1, and Jakarta SOAP with Attachments 3.0 in the list of specifications that are ready for Jakarta EE 10.
The ballot for the release review of Jakarta Context and Dependency Injection 4.0 is still ongoing and will conclude on Wednesday next week.
This means that about half of the specifications have completed their reviews. The remaining half has three weeks to get their release reviews started in order for the end-of-May release date for Jakarta EE 10 to be possible.
Those of you that follow me on Twitter, may have noticed that I am now on my way to Devnexus. The conference is happening from April 12 to 14 at Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Devnexus 2022 has an amazing lineup of speakers, promising a couple of days packed with extremely high-quality content. And, a lot of fun as well.
Don’t miss out on the Jakarta EE reception at 5 pm, Tuesday, April 12 (Room 411). All are invited. Join IBM and Eclipse Foundation for this reception at the end of workshop day at 5 pm for snacks and drinks!
I also hope to meet as many as possible there, so make sure you pop by the Eclipse Foundation (Booth 28) in the exhibition hall.
