Hashtag Jakarta EE #235

Sunday, June 30, 2024 - 05:59 by Ivar Grimstad

Welcome to issue number two hundred and thirty-five of Hashtag Jakarta EE!

As I wrote last week, all the Jakarta EE 11 specifications are now finished and the remaining work to get Jakarta EE 11 released is to finalize the refactoring of the TCK and have at least one open-source compatible implementation passing it.

Milestone 4 of the Jakarta EE 11 APIs are now available in Maven Central. Use these coordinates in your pom.xml to try out this version.


I will go to Nürnberg to speak at Developer Week ’24 this week. It will be my fourth time speaking at this conference, including one online appearance during the pandemic. It does not usually gather the biggest Java crowd, but it feels like the number is increasing for each year. The conference is well-run and a very pleasant experience.

Talking about conferences, the registration for Open Community for Java is now open. If you know you are going, or usually used to attend EclipseCon, you may as well register now. The program is being finalized as we speak and you will be able to check out the speakers and their talks very soon.

Register for Open Community for Java today!
