Oracle announced today that they, along with IBM and Red Hat, will be moving Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation. I would like to welcome everyone involved to our community. We look forward to working with all of the participants in the Java EE ecosystem as it moves to a more open and collaborative development model.
Java EE has been at the center of enterprise computing for almost twenty years. As enterprises move to a more cloud-centric model, it is clear that Java EE requires a more rapid pace of innovation. The open source model has been shown time and again to be the most successful way to innovate in today’s world. The Eclipse Foundation is focused on enabling open collaboration among individuals, small companies, enterprises, and the largest vendors. The Eclipse MicroProfile project is, we believe, an excellent example of the developer community led style of collaboration we support. We look forward to supporting the Java EE community as it creates the platform for the next twenty years of business applications.
