|[jakartaee-platform-dev] RMI-IIOP and CORBA|
I just realized that the Jakarta EE 9 Release Plan doesn't say anything explicit about RMI-IIOP or CORBA. They are both removed from JDK 11, and Jakarta EE 9 explicitly removes EJB interoperability, which depends on RMI-IIOP, but nothing is said about RMI-IIOP or CORBA themselves. My original Jakarta EE 9 proposal was explicit that RMI-IIOP and CORBA would not be included. I think we should update the current plan to make this explicit as well. Note that this means any product providing backwards compatibility will need to provide a complete ORB and RMI-IIOP support, including the javax.rmi APIs. (The javax.rmi APIs would not be migrated to the jakarta namespace.) Comments?
