Java EE 8 Compatible Eclipse GlassFish 5.1 Released

Eclipse GlassFish 5.1 is now Java EE 8 certified, which represents a key step to ensuring backward compatibility of Jakarta EE. The completion of Eclipse GlassFish 5.1 was a key accomplishment in allowing work to begin on the release of Jakarta EE 8.  Work is now underway on migrating all of the Java EE specifications to new Eclipse specification projects.  The Eclipse Foundation aims to have Eclipse GlassFish 5.2 be a Jakarta EE 8 compatible implementation. All of the major vendors who have Java EE 8 compatible versions of their commercial products have committed to ensuring their products are Jakarta EE 8 compatible as well.

The release, Eclipse GlassFish, is fully tested under both the open source TCK and proprietary Oracle Java EE 8 TCK and represents more than 13 million lines of code and 95,000 files. Eclipse GlassFish 5.1 is available for download here.
