Re: [] Jakarta EE 8 Specs in PDF

Last but not least Microprofile spawned off a REST Client Spec that at least partly competes with Jakarta REST outside Jakarta EE which adds even more confusion and places people have to look if they write an app that uses both. 

 Writing any MP application would require looking in multiple places. MP’s foundation is CDI, JAX-RS, JSON-[BP], an these specs exist there only by reference.

 To be clear, the MP REST Client spec (like OpenAPI) builds on top of JAX-RS and provides a declarative approach to building clients (and no support at all for building actual services).

 Thus, I don’t think compete is the correct verb here. There is an overlap, yes, in that JAX-RS provides a non-declarative approach for clients as well, but the two can co-exist perfectly fine, with developers choosing their preferred flavor. 

 FYI, the idea of aligning these efforts has been discussed [1].
