Jakarta EE Survey Report Released


The 2020 Jakarta EE Developer Survey report was published on June 23 and is available for download. 


The objective of this survey is to help Java ecosystem stakeholders better understand the requirements, priorities, and perceptions of enterprise developer communities. Over 2,100 enterprise Java developers worldwide participated in this year’s survey and the results show significantly increased growth in the use of Jakarta EE 8 and interest in cloud native Java overall.


Despite the fact that it was shipped less than a year ago in September 2019, Jakarta EE 8, the first major Jakarta EE release by the Eclipse Foundation, has seen very significant adoption. Usage has skyrocketed with 17% of all developers using this latest iteration, a significant percentage for a relatively new release. Other key findings from this survey include:

  • Java/Jakarta EE 8 hits the mainstream with 55% adoption among the developers surveyed.
  • Spring/Spring Boot continues to be the leading framework for building cloud native applications, but according to this survey, its share dropped from 57% in 2019 to 44% in 2020, a decline of 13%.
  • Since its announcement in early 2019, the adoption of Red Hat’s Quarkus has increased significantly with 16% of developers now using the framework. 
  • The overall usage of the microservices architecture for implementing Java systems in the cloud dropped to 39% in 2020 vs 43% in 2019. This could be due to implementers realizing that microservices are not a “one-size-fits-all” solution, which is further borne out by the use of the monolithic architecture approach doubling since last year with 25% adoption reported in 2020.

Present Your IoT Research at Eclipse SAM IoT


The ever-increasing adoption of IoT technologies in every application domain is leading to the next phase of IoT innovation. 


With that in mind, researchers in next-generation IoT are invited to present their work to participants from the community, industry, and standardization bodies at the Eclipse SAM IoT virtual conference on September 17-18.


The challenge of meeting non-functional requirements with IoT, such as low latency, high reliability, security, and dynamic resource allocation, has led to innovations in a variety of areas, including edge computing, AI and analytics, digital twin, and new security and trust schemes. These innovations are setting the groundwork for the next generation of IoT technologies that will be expressed in new projects such as smart factories, smart cities, critical infrastructures, and cooperative service robotics. 


If you are working in these areas and would like to participate in Eclipse SAM IoT, submit your paper by July 22. Registration is now open, so we hope you will join us for this free event.
