Jakarta EE 10 and Beyond

Track: Jakarta EE
Java EE has been re-branded to Jakarta EE and moved to truly open source governance under the Eclipse Foundation. There have so far been several successful releases under the Eclipse Foundation - Jakarta EE 8, 9, 9.1 and now 10. This session overviews what this means and offers a brief tour of Jakarta EE 10. We will also look at what the future might bring. Jakarta EE 10 brings some long pending updates to key technologies like Jakarta Security, Concurrency, REST, Persistence and Faces. It also brings the Core Profile targeted to next-generation runtimes such as Open Liberty, Helidon and Quarkus. Down the line in Jakarta EE 11, there may be further changes afoot for Jakarta Configuration, NoSQL, Messaging, Security, Concurrency, REST, Persistence/Data, gRPC and MVC. You can contribute to all this and more. You should come to this session with your thinking caps on and your sleeves rolled up. There is much to help move forward together that really matters.
