Editor's Note

This month's newsletter brings exciting news. Starting now, we will dedicate four issues of the Eclipse Newsletter to Jakarta EE each year. They will be spread out quarterly and the remainder of the newsletters will cover various topics as usual. The idea is to keep you updated with the fast pace and various changes happening around Cloud Native Java.

To start, we have eight great pieces to inform you about various parts of Jakarta EE. It starts with what Jakarta EE is and what has happened since the announcement last September (that Java EE technologies were coming to the Eclipse Foundation), to technical articles about Java EE 8 and Reactive Streams.
 ➜ Jakarta EE Progress to Date
 ➜ Jakarta EE Challenges
 ➜ 5 minutes with the PMC Lead of EE4J
 ➜ Jakarta EE - No Turning Back
 ➜ Jakarta EE – The new home for enterprise Java
 ➜ Proprietary to Open: A Sea Change for Jakarta EE
 ➜ Java EE 8: the baseline of Jakarta EE
 ➜ What can Reactive Streams offer EE4J?

Be sure to join us next week at EclipseCon France in Toulouse, on June 13-14, to learn more about Jakarta EE and many other great Eclipse projects. Check out the program!

Can't make it to EclipseCon France? Propose a talk now for EclipseCon Europe, Oct 23-25 in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

Finally, the Eclipse Foundation has updated its privacy policy. We encourage you to check it out. As always, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, and if you do so we will permanently remove your personal information from our subscription list.

Happy reading!
