Hashtag Jakarta EE #221

Sunday, March 24, 2024 - 06:59 by Ivar Grimstad

Welcome to issue number two hundred and twenty-one of Hashtag Jakarta EE!

The work with Jakarta EE 11 is chugging along, and we are approaching the deadline for component specifications to engage in release reviews to be a part of Milestone 3. Talking about milestones, Jakarta EE 11 Milestone 2 will be available shortly. The reason why it is not available just yet is that we need all component specifications to be released to Maven Central before we can push the button. This will happen as soon as the release reviews have concluded. The current status of these reviews are:

Release Review in progress:
– Jakarta Contexts and Dependency Injection 4.1
– Jakarta Expression Language 6.0
– Jakarta Interceptors 2.2

Release Review about to start:
– Jakarta Annotations 3.0

The release review for Jakarta Annotations can start as soon as there is a compatible implementation that passes the TCK on Java 17. Eclipse GlassFish 8.0.0-M3 passes on Java 21. It looks like the next beta release of Open Liberty will include the Jakarta Annotations 3.0 API and be used as a compatible implementation for ratification along with GlassFish.
