Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] Transitioning Jakarta EE to the jakarta namespace

The more I think about this the more I'm in favor of the Big Bang over Incremental. I think the only way forward is to move absolutely everything over with no exceptions at one time and then identify what will be deprecated. Starting in Jakarta EE 10 we can begin to remove stuff.ÂÂ

In the github proposal for Incremental, it says over and over again that the result would be mixed namespaces. But the Big Bang never says that yet it does say "Any packages not moved from javax to jakarta could be included in Jakarta EE, but would be forever frozen and never move to the jakarta namespace." Âwhich is exactly the same thing, right?

Here's where they're the same:

 Jakarta EE 9 comes out and it is some mix of javax and jakarta. You must learn the mix.

Here's where they're different:

 Big Bang: Jakarta EE 10 comes out. You already learned the mix, you're good.

 Incremental: Jakarta EE 10 comes out. Forget the old mix, learn the new one. Also update your source code again.


And worse case...

 Big Bang: Jakarta EE 11 comes out. You already learned the mix, you're good.

 Incremental: Jakarta EE 11 comes out. Forget the old mix, learn the new one. Hope you have any chance of keeping it straight. Hope your boss doesn't get mad when you tell her you have to migrate source again to use a new feature.
