Hashtag Jakarta EE #207

Welcome to issue number two hundred and seven of Hashtag Jakarta EE!

A new thing we are doing with Jakarta EE 11 is to release milestones as we develop the specifications. This is to make the APIs available for implementers at an earlier stage than previously. The planned milestones for Jakarta EE 11 are:

  • M1: December 2023
    Milestones of all specifications
  • M2: February 2024
    Final versions of specifications in waves 1, 2, 3, and 4
    Updated milestones for the rest
  • M3: March 2024
    Final versions of specifications in wave 5
    Updated milestones for the rest
  • M4: April 2024
    Final versions of specifications in waves 6 and 7

Check out the Jakarta EE 11 Release Plan for more details and an overview of the waves.

According to the plan, all specification projects have published M1 releases. The M1 of the Jakarta EE 11 Platform, Web Profile, and Core Profile will be published this week. We are just tying up the last loose ends, so most likely early in the week just in time for the upcoming holidays.

With just a couple of weeks left in 2023, the work with planning events and conferences in 2024 is in full swing. I had the pleasure of speaking at lots of Java User Groups (JUGs) this year, and this is something I hope to continue next year. If you are involved in a JUG, please get in touch with me if you are looking for speakers.

A trick is to check out my list of upcoming conferences if there is a conference in your vicinity. It does not necessarily need to be in the same city, state, or even country. If it is on the same continent, I can plan my travels to stop by on the way to or from.

Another trick is to cooperate with adjacent JUGs so we can set up a small tour.
