As I wrote in Hashtag Jakarta EE #186, I am very much in favor of including Jakarta Data 1.0. It will move the platform forward by providing a proven technology that the developer community is in favor of. Please make your voice heard on the mailing list by casting your vote today!
The three plan reviews for Jakarta EE Platform, Jakarta EE Web Profile, and Jakarta EE Core Profile are being worked on and will be submitted for plan review shortly.
