Hashtag Jakarta EE #223

Sunday, April 7, 2024 - 05:59 by Ivar Grimstad

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

A busy week for the Java Community is coming up. One of the finest Java conferences in Europe is happening at the same time as the premier Java conference in the US. JavaLand and Devnexus in the same week! I am usually a regular at both of these events, so this year I had to choose. It will be the first edition of JavaLand that I am not present at having been speaking there at every one of the nine previous ones. A bummer, but that’s the way it is.

We are repeating the success from last year with a dedicated Jakarta EE track at Devnexus. We will also have a booth where you can come and have a chat with us and maybe even pick up some swag.

The best way to get the most out of the conference days is to get some exercise in before it all starts. An excellent option is a quick trip to the hotel gym, but if you are into running a little, come join me and run With Jakarta EE at Devnexus. We will start at 6:30 am every morning from the Olympic Rings on the corner of Centennial Olympic Park (across the street from the Ferris wheel).

Jakarta EE 11 continues to move forward. We are just waiting for the release review of Jakarta Interceptors to be completed before we can release Milestone 2 to Maven Central. The release reviews for the next milestone have started, or are being prepared. Hopefully, most of them will be underway shortly.

One of my most popular talks last year was the talk about migrating from Spring Boot 2 to Spring Boot 3 with Java 21 and Jakarta EE. In this list of most viewed talks on YouTube, the one I did at Devoxx Belgium is currently in 71st place. It is still a popular talk, and it keeps getting accepted at conferences even in 2024.
