Welcome to issue number one hundred and twenty of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
Last week was dominated by Devnexus 2022 in Atlanta. If you haven’t done so already, check out my short summary from the conference. The work with Jakarta EE 10 continues even if many of the active participants were speaking at, or attending Devnexus.
Jakarta Activation 2.1, Jakarta Annotations 2.1, Jakarta Batch 2.1, Jakarta Context and Dependency Injection 4.0, Jakarta Interceptors 2.1, Jakarta JSON Binding 3.0, Jakarta JSON Processing 2.1, Jakarta Mail 2.1, Jakarta Persistence 3.1, Jakarta RESTful Web Services 3.1, Jakarta XML Binding 4.0, and Jakarta SOAP with Attachments 3.0, and Jakarta XML Web Services 4.0 have completed their ballots and are ready for Jakarta EE 10.
There are currently twelve specifications that haven’t started their release review ballot yet. Most of these are specifications that are part of Jakarta EE 10 Web Profile. The status is listed in the minutes from the April 12 Platform Call. Take a look there, and see if you can help with getting any of these over the finishing line.
On Wednesday, April 20, 2022, Tanja and I will join Steve Millidge in a webinar hosted by Payara to talk about why Jakarta EE 10 is the biggest thing to happen to Java in 20 years. A pretty bold statement, so do register and join us to see if we can pull it off…
The Call-for-paper for EclipseCon 2022 is now open. Here are the important dates to pay attention to:
– June 1: early-bird submission deadline
– June 15: final submission deadline
– July 1 (approximately): the program is chosen, and submitters notified
EclipseCon 2022 will be in person in Ludwigsburg, Germany, October 24-27, 2022.
I encourage YOU to submit as many Jakarta EE talks as possible, so we are sure to make an impression at the conference. There will also, as usual, be a community day with an entire track dedicated to Jakarta EE, so submit early and often!
