Hashtag Jakarta EE #179

Sunday, June 4, 2023 - 05:59 by Ivar Grimstad

Welcome to issue number one hundred and seventy-nine of Hashtag Jakarta EE!

Planning for Jakarta EE 11 continues. There was a rush of requests for plan review submitted this week. At the moment, the specifications that are planning an update for Jakarta EE 11 are:

Jakarta Authentication 3.1
Jakarta Authorization 3.0
Jakarta Concurrency 3.1
Jakarta Contexts and Dependency Injection 4.1
Jakarta Expression Language 6.0
Jakarta Faces 5.0
Jakarta Pages 4.0
Jakarta Persistence 3.2
Jakarta RESTful Web Services 4.0 (*)
Jakarta Security 4.0
Jakarta Servlet 6.1
Jakarta WebSocket 2.2

Jakarta Data 1.0 (*)
Jakarta NoSQL 1.0 (*)
Jakarta MVC 3.0

Those marked with (*) already have approved plans, so a plan review is not necessary for this release. Also note that Jakarta Data, Jakarta NoSQL, and Jakarta MVC are currently standalone specifications being discussed for inclusion in the Platform. Out of these three, my guess is that Jakarta Data is the one most likely to be included. There is an issue in the Jakarta EE Platform issue tracker to capture the discussion around this. Please do chime in if you have an opinion about it. Following this discussion, there will most likely be a formal vote on the Jakarta EE mailing list.

Last week’s trip to JPrime 2023 in Sofia, Bulgaria was the last of four conferences I spoke at in May. Summer is approaching, and conference season is starting to wind down. My next conference will be GOTO Amsterdam at the end of June. While I am there, I will also speak at the Amsterdam JUG. More details will follow when the details are carved out.
