The results of the 2019 Jakarta EE Developer Survey are out. Almost 1,800 Java developers from around the world have spoken. Taken together with the engagement and response to my recent posts on the future of Jakarta EE (see my latest blog here), the survey makes clear the developer community is focused on charting a new course for a cloud native future, beginning with delivering Jakarta EE 8.
I’d like to thank the community for the level of engagement we’ve seen in response to my post from last week. This post, which again represents the consensus view of the Jakarta EE Steering Committee, answers some questions about Jakarta EE 8, which is planned as the initial release of Jakarta EE, and is intended to be fully compatible with Java EE 8, including use of the javax namespace. We thought it would be useful to reiterate the messages we have been delivering about this release.
The Eclipse Contributor Agreement (ECA) is an agreement made by contributors certifying the work they are contributing was authored by them and/or they have the legal authority to contribute as open source under the terms of the project license.
Summary of progress to date and implications of the agreement between Eclipse and Oracle on Jakarta EE and use of Java trademarks and the javax namespace.
The migration of Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation has been an enormous effort on behalf of the Eclipse Foundation staff and the many contributors, committers, members, and stakeholders that are participating.
This post was reviewed and represents the consensus view of the Jakarta EE Steering Committee.
After 15 years at 102 Centrepointe Drive in Ottawa, the Eclipse Foundation is on the move. We will now be located at 2934 Baseline Road, Suite 202, Ottawa, ON, K2H 1B2.
Back in 2004, when we took the space current space on Centrepointe, there were only three of us on staff. Fifteen years later we have been joined by over 20 more staff in the Ottawa office, where we now occupy all three floors of our building. With this growth, we have simply outgrown our existing space.
We are proud to announce that our 2019 IoT Developer Survey results are now available! In February & March 2019, we conducted the fifth annual IoT Developer Survey and 1,717 responses were received. Thank you all for contributing to this initiative and helping us gain insight into IoT developer communities worldwide! This yearly survey is intended for the Eclipse Foundation to continuously learn key trends that are happening in this ever-changing world we call the Internet of Things.
After months of hard work, the 2019 IoT Developer Survey results are live today. This year marks the fifth year the Eclipse IoT Working Group has asked the global IoT developer community to share their perceptions, requirements, and priorities. The survey has proven to be an influential assessment of the IoT market as viewed from the development front lines. Access the full findings of the 2019 IoT Developer Survey here.
With the Eclipse Foundation Specification Process (EFSP) a single open source specification project has a dedicated project team of committers to create and maintain one or more specifications. The cycle of creation and maintenance extends across multiple versions of the specification, and so while individual members may come and go, the team remains and it is that team that is responsible for the every version of that specification that is created.
