Today we celebrate the one year anniversary of the Eclipse IDE Working Group. A year ago, the Eclipse Foundation launched this Working Group focused on the Eclipse IDE and the Eclipse Simultaneous Release (SimRel). We would like to share some of our successes since the launch of the Working Group in April 2021.
CodeMash is a conference I always enjoy very much coming back to, so I was extremely pleased when they decided to have a conference this year despite all that is going on. It really shows that it is possible to arrange in-person events in a safe way.
Surveys often seem to come around when we’re busiest and feel we can’t afford to take time to answer questions. However, a few minutes of your time can have important benefits down the road to everyone in the Java ecosystem. Now in its fourth year, the Jakarta EE Developer Survey is open until May 31.
Today we announced the creation of the Adoptium Working Group, whose mission is to bring high-quality, open source Java runtimes to millions of developers building the next generation of enterprise applications.
25 years and still going strong! Java is everywhere. It is the #1 programming language in the World. And it continues to evolve! Java has been a part of my entire professional career. Let’s get together and celebrate the past 25 years and look ahead for the next 25!
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.
I am very happy to announce that we are publishing a draft of the Eclipse Foundation Specification Process for community review and feedback. This specification process will be used by Jakarta EE as the new open specification process, replacing the JCP process previously used for Java EE. It is also expected that this new process will be of interest to other Eclipse working groups.
