Surveys often seem to come around when we’re busiest and feel we can’t afford to take time to answer questions. However, a few minutes of your time can have important benefits down the road to everyone in the Java ecosystem. Now in its fourth year, the Jakarta EE Developer Survey is open until April 30.
Last year, more than 2,200 software developers, architects, and decision-makers around the world responded to the survey, an increase of almost 20 percent over the previous year. Here are three reasons everyone in the Java community should take a few minutes to provide their input.
1. Discover the Latest Trends in Tools and Technologies
By sharing details about the Java framework, JDK, runtime, IDE, and perhaps other languages you’re using to build cloud native applications, you can help paint a more accurate picture of which technologies and tools are gaining ground, and which are losing favor.
Understanding these trends may lead you to explore the benefits of other frameworks, runtimes, and tools that deliver capabilities you don’t have today and can help accelerate your cloud evolution.
2. Gain Insight Into Architectural Approaches and Cloud Evolution Strategies
In the last few years, there’s been quite a bit of discussion about the benefits of various strategies to implement Java systems in the cloud. Interestingly, last year’s Jakarta EE Developer Survey revealed that the use of monolithic architectures jumped from 13 percent in 2019 to 25 percent in 2020.
With input about your architectural approach and timeline for evolving Java systems to the cloud, everyone in the Java ecosystem will have better visibility into ongoing strategies to:
- “Lift and shift” legacy applications to the cloud
- Re-architect legacy applications as microservices
- Create new cloud native applications from the ground up
This visibility could very well influence your cloud evolution strategy and approach.
3. Influence Jakarta EE Priorities
The Jakarta EE Developer Survey is a great opportunity to indicate how you would like Jakarta EE to evolve to meet your cloud requirements.
Maybe there are certain features and functions you need Jakarta EE specifications to provide. Maybe you’re looking for better support for microservices or tighter integration with container orchestration technologies. Perhaps you’re looking for a faster pace of innovation. Or, perhaps you’re looking for something else altogether.
Whatever your priorities are, the Jakarta EE community needs to know so they can make informed decisions that are aligned as closely as possible with the priorities of developers globally.

The more people who take a few minutes to complete the survey, the more accurate the results will be. Make sure your point of view is included.
