Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] Oracle's position on Jakarta EE 9

I imagine he just meant Java EE 8, for which Jakarta EE 8 is a drop-in replacement.

Jakarta EE 8 is definitely NOT an Oracle brand.  I'm not sure what legal issue there would be for a Jakarta EE 9 product to support applications written for Jakarta EE 8.

Hello bill

Regarding your comment "I won't be surprised if the community decides not to specify backward compatibility."

For me make sense, and just support backward compatibility only from Jakarta EE 9 and beyond, due Jakarta EE 8 still been oracle brand and can be tricky from the legal side handle the support.

I agree with Bill's perspective here. Carlos, I am not sure why you think that Jakarta EE 8 is an Oracle brand, but that's simply incorrect.
