Charting a Course for the Future of Cloud Native Java

With Jakarta EE 9.1 well underway and Jakarta EE 10 on the horizon, now is the time for everyone with a stake in cloud native Java to get involved in shaping the future of Java infrastructure.
This month, our newsletter highlights three ways you can add your voice and expertise to the effort:
  • Review the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile alignment options, choose your preferred approach, and explain your rationale.
  • Contribute to the Jakarta EE 9.1 Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) testing effort.
  • Have your Jakarta EE-compatible implementation listed on a specification page.
The entire Java ecosystem benefits from your participation, as it helps create a better future for cloud native enterprise Java.

Happy reading!
