Encourage All to Adopt New jakarta.* Namespace
If you have migrated your custom application to Jakarta EE 9 and adopted new jakarta.* namespace or you are a vendor that is adopting the new jakarta.* namespace, please let us know. You can tweet about it and use #embraceJakarta and we’ll be happy to promote you!
To help vendors make the transition, the Jakarta EE community has developed a data sheet summarizing the namespace migration challenge and opportunity. You can download the datasheet here.
