Welcome to the eighty-sixth issue of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
The Jakarta EE 10 release plan is approved!
According to the plan, Jakarta EE 10 Platform and Web Profile is targeting a release in Q1, 2022. This is a little less than a year after Jakarta EE 9.1 (May 2021). In order to make this happen, the individual specifications that the Jakarta EE Platform and Web Profile specifications are based on must start their release process some time in advance of the proposed release date.
October 15, 2021, has previously been communicated as a target date for initiating release reviews for the specifications. The experience from the Jakarta EE 9 and 9.1 releases indicates that this is a reasonable time to start the release reviews to be able to finalize the Platform and Web Profile releases for Jakarta EE 10 in Q1.
So what about Jakarta EE Core Profile? Will it be released at the same time as the Platform and Web Profile? Well, it is possible, but unlikely. It depends on the progress of the CDI Lite specifications and maybe also Jakarta Config. The platform project will propose a release plan for Jakarta EE Core profile shortly. Join the weekly Jakarta EE Platform calls on Tuesdays 11:00 AM ET to get the latest information first and contribute to the progress. you find the details in the Jakarta EE Specifications public calendar.
