The moment we've all been waiting for ever since Oracle announced their decision to contribute Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation is almost upon us. A lot of work and dedication has been put into delivering the Jakarta EE 8 release, but the most important accomplishment so far has been the collaboration between the members of the Jakarta EE Working Group.
It's been six years since the Eclipse Foundation became involved in several publicly funded research projects, with the goal to share its DNA with the research world and help them create an open source community to foster dissemination and make the results available for commercial and public use.
For many years, the Eclipse Foundation has offered an MQTT sandbox to the IoT developer community. That sandbox was maintained by Foundation staff and was running on Foundation infrastructure. The goal was to encourage and facilitate the evaluation of Eclipse Paho and Eclipse Mosquitto, and to foster interoperability among MQTT implementations. Today, I have the pleasure to announce the deployment of a new community-run MQTT sandbox to replace it.
