Re: [] Availability of Jakarta EE 9 within Jelastic PaaS

Ruslan and Jelastic team,

I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for being leaders in the tools/cloud industry in adopting the new jakarta namespace.  We need the entire industry to make the transition and that won't happen if everyone sits and stares at each other waiting for someone else to go first.

I hope people understand 1) the risk to us all if tools/monitoring/cloud vendors do not aggressively support the namespace change and 2) the value to us all when companies like yours decide to lead the way and create market pressure that puts momentum behind the change.

The reality of our industry is that it is usually smaller companies like yours that create change and larger competitors who come later and often reap the biggest benefits.  I hope people decide to make this story different and reward your commitment with their support.

Thank you for being a leader in this industry-wide effort.

Hi Jakarta EE Community,

The Jelastic PaaS Team is in the active process of integrating Jakarta EE 9 within our cloud platform. We have updated certified container images with the following software stacks and already made them available for the customers:
GlassFish and Payara updates are coming soon, a set of technical challenges still have to be solved. But we expect to be totally ready at the moment of a full launch during this fall and make the transition for our users as smooth as possible.

Jelastic PaaS provides an easy way to create environments with new Jakarta EE9-based application servers for deep testing and compatibility checks. It’s also possible to redeploy existing containers with old versions to the newest ones for reducing the amount of migration efforts.

In addition, we plan to migrate our internal services to Jakarta EE 9 during Q3-Q4 2020.

Current namespace migration will open the doors to the upcoming Jakarta EE 10 new features, enhancements and other major updates. And Jelastic fast adoption of the changes will make this functionality available for cloud users without long expectations.

Best regards
Ruslan Synytsky
CEO @ Jelastic Multi-Cloud PaaS
