Re: [] Jakarta EE in the future

Hi Aislan,

There is a lot of Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt starting to surface around Java but I would not be concerned. Both the Java and JavaEE/JakartaEE platforms are in transition right now with both becoming stronger more competitive platforms.  Java is the most widely used programming language today and is therefore unlikely to go away in the foreseeable future. There are other language and platform options, but Java continues to dominate.  The new changes to JavaSE and JavaEE/JakartaEE are only going to increase adoption and improve the platform, so right now would be a poor time to move to something else.

In fact, it's the best time to be adopting JavaSE and JakartaEE because you are on the bottom floor of big changes that will have an important impact on the future of both platforms for the next 20 years.  Web development with Java is not in doubt or going away, it may evolve but understanding Servlets, Java ServerPages, and Java ServerFaces are still important and necessary skills moving forward.  Master them and you will be able to evolve with the platform and never want for work.

All the best,

Richard Monson-Haefel

I’m not sure if here is the right place to ask this question but maybe you can help me.

I’m a user of the Java SE and I really like this platform/language. In recent months I decided to study web things using Java, so: Java EE and now Jakarta EE.

When Oracle announced the Java SE support roadmap I started to hear from people of other communities (other platforms/languages) that with this roadmap the future of the Java for web is uncertain.


How do you see the future of the developer that uses Jakarta EE in 3 years? This thing of changing the release each 6 months can really reduce the use of Java for web?


Kind regards,
