The Jakarta community has already made great progress this year and work is underway to deliver the Jakarta EE 8 release. But before we dive deeper into this Jakarta newsletter issue, let's take a moment to look at the 2019 Jakarta EE developer survey results, which canvassed nearly 1,800 Java developers about their adoption of Jakarta EE and trends in Java programming. The findings indicate that cloud native is critically important with a third of developers currently building cloud native architectures and another 30 percent planning to within the next year.
Access the full findings of the 2019 Java Community Developer Survey here.
This issue puts a spotlight on the present and future of Jakarta EE, including thoughts on the agreement between the Eclipse Foundation and Oracle on Jakarta EE and the use of Java trademarks and the javax namespace, how the current challenges can be transformed into opportunities, as well as the next steps towards Jakarta EE 8 and beyond.
You'll also have the chance to read about Quarkus, a next-generation Kubernetes native Java framework, learn how to easily migrate from your favorite Java EE server to an Eclipse MicroProfile implementation and discover how MicroProfile Rest Client 1.2 improves integration with other MicroProfile technologies.
