Welcome to issue number one hundred and forty-five of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
The Jakarta EE Platform Project started with weekly platform calls in 2019. The calls are open for everyone to participate and usually gather somewhere between 15 and 20 participants. The discussions are usually pretty lively and cover general topics that are relevant to all Jakarta EE Specification projects as well as topics more specific to the platform. Meeting minutes are always published on the Jakarta EE Platform Project Meeting Minutes page shortly after the calls.
From time to time, there are topics of more general nature that need to be discussed with the various specification projects. For example, architectural decisions that may impact all, or some, specifications. There are also situations where the Platform Project wants to gather input from all, or some, specifications to be able to make the best decisions.
The first platform call of the month will now be referred to as The Monthly Platform Architecture Call, and be dedicated to this. The agenda will be prepared in advance, and will not depend on attendees having attended the weekly platform calls.
The first Monthly Platform Architecture Call will be held on November 1, 2022.
The details for the call can be found in the public Jakarta EE Specifications Calendar. The platform projects strongly recommend that each Jakarta EE specification project are represented at these calls. Depending on what topics are on the agenda, special invites, or even stronger encouragements will be sent to specific specification projects.
