Thanks for the news Ivar.  It is great to see a date being set for the Jakarta EE 9 delivery plan.

Thanks Ivar for this important and timely update. When do you think end users should begin to step up to aid delivery? One of the key things the soon to be newly minted Jakarta EE Ambassadors can do is pledge to help as a community and begin enlisting as many end users as we can to help in whatever way that we can. This effort can work in conjunction with the JUG engagement program I know you had proposed (which is an excellent idea on its own right by the way).

What do you think?

Subject: [jakartaee-platform-dev] Jakarta EE 9 Delivery Plan


We need to propose a delivery plan for Jakarta EE to the Steering Committee by December 9th. 

In this week's steering committee meeting, the Jakarta EE Steering Committee adopted the following resolution regarding Jakarta EE 9. It is recorded in the minutes, but since these will not be published until after they have been approved at the steering committee meeting next week, I include it here:

RESOLVED, the Jakarta EE Steering Committee requests that the Jakarta EE Platform Project leadership deliver a Jakarta EE 9 Delivery Plan to the Steering Committee no later than December 9, 2019, for the Steering Committee to consider adopting as the roadmap for Jakarta EE 9, and that the Jakarta EE 9 Delivery Plan accommodates the following constraints: 
  • implements the “big bang”
  • Includes an explicit means to identify and enable specifications that are unnecessary or unwanted to be deprecated or removed  
  • Moves all remaining specification APIs to the Jakarta namespace
  • States that no new specifications are to be added, apart from specifications pruned from Java SE 8 where appropriate, unless those specifications clearly will not impact the target delivery date
The plan shall define a delivery date, and the team should view meeting the above requirements in as early a timeframe as possible as a higher priority than adding additional functionality to the release.

As a consequence, I have updated our Monthly call to a weekly (you've probably been spammed by this by now...). The first call being November 12th.
