Jakarta EE 9 and Beyond


Editor's Note

As the target mid-year release date for Jakarta EE 9 approaches, we wanted to share some technical insights provided by our community members and get everyone thinking about potential next steps for Jakarta EE.
While Jakarta EE 9 is a tooling release aimed at infrastructure developers, Jakarta EE 10 gives us the opportunity to add new features and functionality that will enhance and extend cloud native technologies for Java.

Spotlight Articles

Our spotlight articles this month are intended to help you fully leverage Jakarta EE technologies today and tomorrow:

  • Steve Millidge shares an update on Jakarta EE 9 progress, provides key considerations for developers wondering whether they should adopt the release, and explains why now is the right time to start thinking about Jakarta EE 10.
  • Sergii Kostenko explains how to process huge volumes of data using Jakarta EE Batch.
  • Otavio Santana provides an overview of Jakarta NoSQL, its benefits, and considerations for converting a Jakarta NoSQL application to cloud native.
