Editor's Note

Cloud native Java is top of mind for many of us in the Eclipse Foundation community these days. It was a hot topic at the recent inaugural JakartaOne Livestream event with at least three presentations focusing on Eclipse MicroProfile’s powerful capabilities for designing, building, and deploying enterprise Java microservices.

The ongoing excitement around MicroProfile and its role in bringing microservices to enterprise Java environments is evident in the articles we’re sharing with you in this edition of the newsletter.

In this issue of the newsletter, our community authors explain the pros and cons of different microservice programming models and how to use MicroProfile to incorporate key features, such as observability and fault tolerance, into microservices architectures. They share information about opportunities for Spring Boot developers to leverage Quarkus to access MicroProfile capabilities and to combine MicroProfile and Jakarta EE on the same application server. One author even takes a peek into the future with a look at where MicroProfile is headed. We wrap up the issue with highlights from the JakartaOne Livestream event.

We’re sure you’ll agree we have a stellar line-up of interesting and informative content from some of the leading minds in our community:

Don’t Forget… EclipseCon Is Fast Approaching

EclipseCon Europe is just around the corner (Oct 21-24 in Ludwigsburg, Germany), so if you haven’t already registered, be sure to do that now.

We’re particularly excited about Community Day on October 21. This event is a must for everyone who’s interested in our cloud native projects. You’ll have great opportunities to get together with other community members to share ideas, learn from their experiences, and participate in workshops. This year, we’ll be discussing potential collaboration between Jakarta EE and MicroProfile, among other topics, so you won’t want to miss it. We’ve also planned an evening event so you’re sure to have lots of fun! 

Check the EclipseCon Community Day wiki for more information about what’s planned so far and to add your ideas for additional discussion topics.

Congrats to the Jakarta EE Community

As a final note, I just wanted to emphasize how extremely proud everyone at the Eclipse Foundation was when our executive director, Mike Milinkovich, accepted the Duke’s Choice Award on behalf of the Jakarta EE community at the Oracle Code One conference in mid-September. Read more about the significance of this recognition for our community here.

The Duke’s Choice Awards celebrate invaluable innovation in Java-based technologies and contributions to Java, and our Jakarta EE Working Group was recognized for its outstanding open source contributions to the Java ecosystem. Duke’s Choice Award winners are selected by members of Oracle’s Java Platform Group, which makes this recognition a particularly meaningful achievement.

Enjoy the articles!
