A Jakarta EE Foundation for the Future


Editor's Note

We’re approaching the Jakarta EE 9 full release date and Jakarta EE 10 is on the horizon. As we turn our focus to the future of Jakarta EE, it’s a good time for all of us to consider where the technology is today, where we want it to go, and how we can help it get there.

Spotlight Articles

Our spotlight articles this month highlight opportunities to get more involved with Jakarta EE initiatives and technologies.

  • Steve Millidge summarizes everything you need to know about the Jakarta EE 9 full release — how you can help finalize the release, Java release priorities, namespace change roadmaps, and how to start sharing your ideas for Jakarta EE 10.
  • Scott Marlow explains how the Jakarta EE community can get involved in developing Jakarta EE platform Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) tests and why these tests are so important to the future of Jakarta EE.
  • Jean-François James describes a practical way to secure Jakarta RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS) APIs with Eclipse MicroProfile JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) Web Token (JWT).

Committer Profile

Each month, we’ll be introducing you to an Eclipse committer so you can get to know these dedicated Eclipse community members and learn why they became committers.

We start the series with a profile of Lukas Jungmann — committer to 12 Jakarta EE projects, Oracle employee, and most importantly, dad to three children.
