[] [BALLOT] Progress Review for Jakarta EE 11

Greetings Jakarta EE Specification Committee,

I request your vote to approve and ratify the updated plan for Jakarta EE 11. This is a joint progress review for the Jakarta EE 11 Platform, Jakarta EE 11 Web Profile, and Jakarta EE 11 Core Profile specifications.

The JESP/EFSP requires a successful ballot of the Specification Committee to approve the plan of this release (as defined in the EFSP).

The relevant materials are available here:

The Jakarta EE Platform Project has provided the following motivation for the changes:

This change allows for several things while not restricting anything.
  •  It allows compatible runtimes to certify on Java SE 17 OR 21, while simultaneously allowing Concurrency to provide Java SE version runtime-aware support for Virtual Threads.
  • It allows users who are not at liberty to run Java SE 21 to adopt Jakarta EE 11.
  • It allows us to keep our delivery schedule of June/July 2024 to complete Jakarta EE 11.
Per the process, this will be a fourteen-day ballot, ending on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, that requires a Super-majority positive vote of the Specification Committee members (note that there is no veto). Community input is welcome, but only votes cast by Specification Committee Representatives will be counted. According to the process, the ballot will conclude at the earliest on Tuesday, February 6 when all members have cast their vote.

The Specification Committee is composed of representatives of the Jakarta EE Working Group Member Companies (Fujitsu, IBM, Oracle, Payara, Tomitribe, Primeton Information Technologies, and Shandong Cvicse Middleware Co.), along with individuals who represent the EE4J PMC, Participant Members, and Committer Members.

Specification Committee representatives, your vote is hereby requested. Please respond with +1 (positive), 0 (abstain), or -1 (reject). Any feedback that you can provide to support your vote will be appreciated.
