Big day on Tuesday! The second edition of JakartaOne Livestream happens on December 8, 2020. Make sure you are registered!
I am really looking forward to hosting this event together with Tanja. We have an amazing lineup of speakers and lots of great Jakarta EE and MicroProfile content prepared for you.
Between each session, we will return to Studio Jakarta EE for lightning talks, interviews, tech demos discussions, and awards. And, of course, there will be cake!
The Jakarta MVC 2.0 release review ballot has started. The ballot period is 14 days, so it will conclude on December 17, 2020. We are extremely happy to be able to embrace the jakarta.* namespace and run on top of Jakarta EE 9 so quickly after its release.
Eclipse GlassFish 6.0.0 is just around the corner. The release candidate (RC2) has been available for a while, and the team is working on wrapping up the last bits and pieces to release the final version. Hopefully, it will be available for download on Tuesday.
Before a Jakarta EE specification can be released under the Jakarta EE Specification Process (JESP), it has to go through a release review. The ballot for Jakarta MVC 2.0 can be followed in this ballot thread.
The release review is initiated by creating a Pull Request to the Jakarta EE Specifications repository and request a release review by sending an email to the Jakarta EE Specification Committee. See the Jakarta MVC 2.0 pull request to check out the details and follow the ballot on the public Jakarta EE Specification Committee mailing list. It took a while from the request-email until the ballot was started for Jakarta MVC 2.0, but the specification committee now has a streamlined process established for assigning a mentor responsible for starting the ballot.
I will use Jakarta MVC as an example for a specification going through the steps involved in the JESP and blog about it here. Follow the Jakarta MVC tag to get them all.
Jakarta EE 9 is out, and with it the namespace change from javax.* to jakarta.*. When we talk about the namespace change, we mostly talk about changing the import statements in your code when migrating to Jakarta EE 9. But there is more to it. I have created a slightly more advanced “Hello, World” application in order to highlight a couple more. I won’t claim that these are all areas, but I hope I have touched most…
While this may seem like slightly overkill for a “Hello, World” application, but it is also a very good example of the different areas of your codebase that are affected by the new namespace: – Maven dependencies – Import statements and fully qualified class names – XML Schema namespaces – Properties – Bootstrapping – Dynamic data
During one of the Studio Jakarta EE 15-minute sessions of JakartaOne Livestream 2020, I will convert Complete Duke from Jakarta EE 8 to Jakarta EE 9 in 15 minutes or less!
The code is available on GitHub where there is a step-by-step guide you can follow to perform the same migration as I will do live during JakartaOne Livestream 2020. This is a session you will want to attend!
On Saturday, I will present Jakarta MVC 2.0 at the Kotlin Hyderabad Community. In this talk, I will go through a bit of the history behind Jakarta MVC, as well as showing it in practice. Be prepared for an intense Live Coding session!
Jakarta MVC 2.0 is planned to be released later in December, so this talk is a preview of what’s coming.
We continue the cupcake success from the Milestone party in June. This time we go even bigger! A final release deserves a proper CAKE! Join us in the celebration, bake a cake, upload a photo of your creation and win big prizes!
The Jakarta EE Virtual Tour continues in 2021. Reach out if you would like us to visit your JUG/Meetup.
Are you still using JDK Internals? Well, then you should probably be aware that these will be encapsulated by default in Java 16. See JEP 396 for the details. Before you blow a fuse and start getting nightmares from your dependence on sun.misc.Unsafe, relax 🙂 It will still be available, at least for now. This applies to all the critical internal APIs for which standard replacements do not exist yet.
I think this lineup deserves some spotlight. JakartaOne Livestream 2020 is packed with quality content. Check out the schedule and make sure you register for the event!
Between the sessions, we return to Studio Jakarta EE where Tanja and I will talk about the sessions, celebrate the Jakarta EE 9 release, do some live demos, and interview community members. We will also feature a lighting talk by Amber Vanderburg where she will talk about the power of performance feedback. Make sure you tune in to these sessions between sessions. There will be some surprises coming up and, of course, there will be cake!
A specification must, according to the Jakarta EE Specification Process (JESP), provide a test suite to verify that an implementation implements the specification correctly. This test suite is called a Test Compatibility Kit (TCK). There must be at least one compatible implementation, i.e. an implementation that passes the TCK, for a spec to be ratified as a final specification.
The Jakarta EE 9 release will be properly celebrated with our JakartaOne Livestream on December 8. Make sure you register to save your spot! This will be a 12-hour event packed with amazing speakers and content!
Jakarta MVC 2.0 passed the plan review ballot this week. We have already done the work adjusting to the jakarta.mvc.* namespace and passed the TCK with Eclipse Krazo. The only thing left is to initiate the final steps for a Jakarta EE specification release, which we will do at the beginning of next week.
I want to thank everyone that voted in the 2020 JCP Executive Committee elections. The Eclipse Foundation keeps its elected seat and will continue to represent the interests of the open-source community there.
