There's naturally an "I want to go as fast as possible" theme in many of the response. This is good.
There's also a naturally a tendency to view version numbers as dates. This is not accurate. Putting more in a release doesn't make it come sooner.
Using no version numbers whatsoever, here are the most likely potential release windows based on effort:
- Any release of Jakarta EE that is identical to Java EE 8. Achievable this summer or early fall. Low risk.
- Any release of Jakarta EE that contains any form of namespace change. Achievable late fall to winter. Medium risk.
- Any release of Jakarta EE that contains any new features or pruning. Achievable mid to late next year. High risk.
Others can chime in, but I don't believe the rough framing of these dates is way off.
