Last September Oracle announced, with the support of IBM and Red Hat, that Java EE was going to move to the Eclipse Foundation. Since then Fujitsu, Payara and Tomitribe have all joined the initiative with strategic-level commitments.
Projects hosted by the Eclipse Foundation will soon benefit from a brand new enterprise-grade continuous integration (CI) infrastructure.
