Thanks for all the input on, and support of, Oracle's proposed plan for Jakarta EE 9. Given the widespread overall support, I've recast this as the proposed plan from the Jakarta EE platform project. After further review and feedback, I'll ask the platform committers to vote on this plan. I made the following significant changes to the plan: - pruned Jakarta Management - backwards compatibility NOT included - no new profiles - Microprofile APIs NOT included - release in 12 months or less Some of the changes above were motivated by the desire to release sooner rather than later, which seemed to be the consensus. The most feedback was probably around the removal of SOAP support. I think we've adequately explained that products can continue to provide SOAP support based on the Jakarta versions of the corresponding specifications, which will have no changes to their APIs and will continue to use the javax namespace. If platform project committers believe SOAP support MUST be included, now is the time to speak up. Note that this would have a significant impact on the amount of work to be done for Jakarta EE 9. Every detail in the plan will have someone who objects. What I'm trying to achieve is consensus on a plan that most people can support, even if no one thinks it's perfect. As usual, I'm looking forward to your continued feedback, especially if you think I'm moving in the wrong direction. Thanks.
