Welcoming GlassFish to the Eclipse Foundation

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 - 20:45 by Tanja Obradovic

A major milestone was achieved yesterday! The GlassFish code from Oracle made its home in the Eclipse Foundation's Git repositories (https://github.com/eclipse-ee4j/glassfish), starting a new era of Eclipse GlassFish. This is another step in making Jakarta EE a vehicle for innovation in cloud-native application development.

The Eclipse GlassFish application server is still based on the Java EE specification, and we have a ways to go to finalize our work on defining necessary processes and approaches when working with open source TCKs. With the arrival of this codebase, we can start contemplating our first steps once we open up Jakarta EE for community contributions.

You can use the PMC’s project status page to track the progress we’re making in migrating all of the projects related to Jakarta EE.

Thanks to all involved in this effort, especially the Oracle team behind this move.
