Welcome to issue number one hundred and eighty-nine of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
For the first time in a while, I won’t list specifications with plans approved, or under review. They are all done! Well, almost…the Jakarta EE Platform (PR), Jakarta EE Web Profile (PR), and Jakarta EE Core Profile (PR) specifications still have to pass their respective plan reviews. The release plan for Jakarta EE 11 is almost done. Ed Burns, the release coordinator for Jakarta EE 11 will present the plan to the Jakarta EE Steering Committee in their meeting in the upcoming week.
Among the topics for Jakarta EE 11 is whether to include new specifications. The specifications in discussion are Jakarta Data 1.0, Jakarta MVC 3.0, and JakartaNoSQL 1.0. Cast your vote today on the respective voting thread (Data, MVC, NoSQL)on the Jakarta EE Platform Project Mailing List.
The fall conference season is shaping up. It looks like September and October will be pretty busy for me with trips currently planned to eight countries (Belgium, Canada, Germany, Israel, Morocco, Netherlands, United States, and Sweden) on four continents (Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America). It is a nice mix of Java User Groups and developer conferences. There are still some conferences that haven’t finalized their schedule yet, so the list may be longer.
I have freshened up the list of conferences on my Developer Advocate page by using flags rather than spelling out the countries. Adds a little color to the page. This list is always kept up-to-date with future, current, and past conferences, so you will know where to find me.
