## Direction
### The Future of Cloud Native Java
For many years, Java EE has been a major platform for mission-critical enterprise applications. In order to accelerate business application development for a cloud-native world, leading software vendors collaborated to move Java EE technologies to the Eclipse Foundation where they will evolve under the Jakarta EE brand.
### Guiding Principles
The Jakarta EE Working Group seeks to:
* deliver more frequent releases
* lower barriers to participation
* develop the community
* manage the Jakarta EE brand on behalf the community
Key to this approach is a community-based specification process, with everyone encouraged to participate in an open process that more accurately reflect the needs of the wider community.
We expect the Jakarta EE platform to evolve rapidly, incorporating Java innovations from open source communities like Eclipse MicroProfile into new versions of the platform to help developers create portable cloud-native applications.
Jakarta EE represents the best way to drive cloud-native, mission critical applications and build upon the decades of experience of real world deployments and developers.

title: "Frequently Asked Questions"
date: 2018-04-07T16:09:45-04:00
---
#### Q: What are we announcing on April 24?
A: The key elements of the announcement are:
* Java EE technologies contributed by Oracle will be used to create the new Jakarta EE platform, including a fresh new logo selected by the community.
* The Eclipse Foundation is the new home of Cloud Native Java
* Jakarta EE Working Group[link to charter] priorities for modernizing the technology and its governance processes to be more open and community-based
* Results of inaugural Jakarta EE [developer survey](/documents/insights/2018-jakarta-ee-developer-survey.pdf).
---
#### Q: What is the significance of the name “Jakarta EE”? How did you come up with the name?
A: In the early days of Java, the Apache Jakarta project was the home of many exciting innovations in the Java ecosystem. It was particularly instrumental in establishing a strong open source community in and around the Java platform. [According to Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jakarta_Project#Project_name) the name was originally selected because it was the meeting room used at Sun Microsystems for the meetings that led to the project creation.
In February 2018, the Community was welcomed to vote on the new name for Java EE. Almost 7,000 community members voted in our community poll, and [over 64% voted in favour of Jakarta EE](https://mmilinkov.wordpress.com/2018/02/26/and-the-name-is/). Read [Java EE to Jakarta EE](http://www.tomitribe.com/blog/2018/02/java-ee-to-jakarta-ee/) which explains the history behind the name selection. The Apache Software Foundation kindly allowed the Eclipse Foundation to resume using that name, after it was retired at Apache in 2011.
---
#### Q: What is included in the Jakarta EE platform?
A: Initially Jakarta EE is the exact equivalent to the Java EE 8 platform. All of the specifications, reference implementations (RIs), and technology compatibility kits (TCKs) that comprised [Java EE 8](http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javaee/overview/index.html) will be transferred to the Eclipse Foundation.
---
#### Q: How does the Jakarta EE governance model differ from Java EE governance model?
A: The main difference is that the governance model is now inherently community-based, multi-vendor, and open to contribution by the enterprise consumers of these technologies. The Eclipse Foundation has a 14 year track record of providing a level playing field for all interested parties to collaborate on technology. The Foundation will ensure that the new specifications and development processes for Jakarta EE will be open, vendor-neutral, and provide a level playing field for all participants.
In the past few years, the Java Community Process (JCP) has done a better job at integrating the community it serves by being more open and transparent. However, it is a body ultimately controlled by Oracle, and its intellectual property rules gave the Spec Lead a distinct advantage relative to the other stakeholders.
---
#### Q: How will the new release cycles work for Jakarta?
A: We are still working through the release cycles, so we cannot commit to any particular schedule or cadence at this time. However, there is a strong commitment by all involved to significantly increase the pace of innovation. We intend to also listen to both the developer community and the enterprise consumers of Jakarta EE technologies to understand what their desires are. Obviously there are trade-offs to be made between things such as stability versus pace of new innovation.
---
#### Q: What’s going to be in the next release of GlassFish, and when will it get launched?
A: There are going to be two releases of Eclipse GlassFish in 2018
1. In Q3 2018 the community will release an Eclipse GlassFish 5.1 which is certified as Java EE 8 compatible. This will also be the first release of all of the projects being moved to the Eclipse Foundation, and as such will be a significant event in the on-boarding of the Java EE 8 technologies into the Eclipse community.
2. In Q4 2018 the community will release an Eclipse GlassFish 5.2 which is certified as Jakarta EE 8 compatible. This will be the first pass through the new specification process, and will be an important milestone.
---
#### Q: What is the relationship between EE4J and Jakarta EE?
A: Here are two good posts that explain the relationships between the two, and when you should use which name:
* http://www.agilejava.eu/2018/03/22/the-relationship-between-jakarta-ee-ee4j-and-java-ee/
* https://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/ee4j-community/msg01403.html
---
#### Q: Beyond the immediate roadmap, what is the overall vision for the technical future of Jakarta EE? What are the most important areas to evolve?
A: The key areas that we have heard that developers and other stakeholders want us to focus on include:
* Enhanced support for microservices architecture
* Move to Cloud Native Java, which includes better integrations with technologies like Docker and Kubernetes
* Increase the pace of innovation
* Build a vibrant developer community
* Provide production quality reference implementations
---
#### Q: When will there be a Jakarta EE [ 9 | 1.0 | 2019.MM.DD ] release that will include enhanced support for microservices architectures and cloud-native application development?
A: The current focus is to on board all of the projects, and get to the first release which is branded as Jakarta EE 8. Stay tuned for announcements later this year.
---
#### Q: Will Jakarta EE support the creation and management of microservices as a top priority for most enterprise modernization efforts?
A: Yes. We expect that the existing Eclipse MicroProfile community and other open source communities to continue leading the way. Incorporating Java innovations from these projects and communities into new versions of the platform will be key to our success.
---
#### Q: How will Jakarta EE support cloud-enablement of legacy Java systems?
A: We expect to see the community to work towards better integrations with cloud native technologies such as Kubernetes and Docker. Some of these integrations need to happen at the Java virtual machine (JVM) level. We expect the Jakarta EE community to work closely with the OpenJDK and Eclipse OpenJ9 team to provide support at the framework level as these JVM enhancements are made available.
---
#### Q:What are the key intersections making sure the language and the EE platform are in lock-step?
A: The Jakarta EE release cadence and schedule have not yet been determined. Once the community decides what the correct cadence is, we can start discussions to ensure alignment with other communities like OpenJDK.
---
#### Q: When will the Technology Compatibility Kits (TCKs) become more open and a less arduous process required for vendor contribution to Jakarta EE?
A: Oracle has committed to open sourcing the TCKs as part of this process in 2018. Having the TCKs available under an open source license for the first time will definitely be one of the factors allowing a more rapid pace of innovation in the community. Previously the TCKs were only available to Java EE licensees, who paid significant dollars in order to get access to them. In the future, individuals in the community will be able to run TCKs to verify compatibility. (Note that this is not the same thing as certifying compatible implementations, which will still require a TBD Jakarta EE trademark license.)
---
#### Q: How can I get involved in the Eclipse Foundation?
A: There are a number of ways to answer that question, depending on who or what you are.
* As a **contributor** you can simply contribute to the EE4J projects on GitHub via pull requests. You will have to sign our Eclipse Contributor Agreement to do that.
* As a **committer** you are already involved! Thank you for your efforts on the projects you participate in. If you would like to get involved in our governance, there are numerous opportunities to do so. For example you can run in the Eclipse Foundation Board elections, or the Jakarta EE working group elections. These elected positions are very important, and provide the committer community with an opportunity to influence our governance.
* As a **software vendor** you can join the Eclipse Foundation as a Solutions Member, and the Jakarta EE Working Group as a Participant Member. This allows you to support the sustainability of the community, participate in marketing programs, and engage directly with the community.
* As an **enterprise** you can join the Eclipse Foundation as an Enterprise Member, and the Jakarta EE Working Group as an Influencer Member. This allows you to support the sustainability of the community, participate in marketing programs, and engage directly with the community. In addition, Influencer Members participate in the Enterprise Requirements Committee to provide your specific requirements into the annual roadmap process for Jakarta EE.
* As a **Java EE and/or cloud platform vendor** you can join the Eclipse Foundation and the Jakarta EE Working Group as a Strategic Member. This allows you to support the sustainability of the community, participate in marketing programs, and engage directly with the community. It also provides direct access to the governance of both the Eclipse Foundation and the Jakarta EE Working Group.

Future evolution of Java EE, Jakarta EE stack moves to the Eclipse Foundation.
<!--more-->
**OTTAWA, April 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)** -- The Eclipse Foundation, the platform for open collaboration and innovation, today unveiled the new open source governance model and a “cloud native Java” path forward for Jakarta EE, the new community-led platform created from the contribution of Java EE. In late 2017, Oracle [announced](https://blogs.oracle.com/theaquarium/opening-up-ee-update) that it was transferring the future of Java EE technologies to the Eclipse Foundation, to make the process of evolving its standards “more agile, flexible and open.”
For many years, Java EE has been the de facto platform for enterprise systems -- offering reliable multi-vendor standards, ubiquitous in datacenters across every industry, and delivering stability and scalability on the back-end of the world’s mission critical applications. With the rapid adoption of cloud architectures, microservices and containers, the technology industry is undergoing a rapid transformation.
“Jakarta EE represents the best way to drive cloud native, mission critical applications and build upon the decades of Java EE experience of real world deployments and developers,“ said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. “The pace of innovation necessary to modernize enterprise systems for cloud-centric use cases requires a new governance model -- a focus on faster release cycles, and supporting an open source, community-driven evolution of the platform. To accelerate this innovation process, Java EE technologies are being moved to the Eclipse Foundation where they will evolve under the Jakarta EE brand.”
The Jakarta EE Working Group has already attracted support from some of the leading technology vendors in the world who work with large installed bases of customers running Java workloads, including Fujitsu, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Payara, Red Hat, SAP and Tomitribe. The group’s initial focuses include cloud-native Java enablement, a new governance model that encourages more innovation and faster release cycles, as well as attracting more new members into the community process.
## I. Cloud-native Java enablement
A just-completed [survey](/documents/insights/2018-jakarta-ee-developer-survey.pdf) sponsored by the Eclipse Foundation captured responses from over 1,800 Java developers worldwide about new technical capabilities they want enhanced with Jakarta EE. The three most critical areas cited for improvement were better support for microservices, native integration with Kubernetes, Docker, etc. and a faster pace of innovation. The Jakarta EE Working Group aims to offer the massive installed base of Java users new, reliable paths to cloud modernization.
Under its new governance model, the Jakarta EE platform is expected to evolve rapidly, incorporating Java innovations from open source communities like Eclipse MicroProfile into new versions of the platform to help developers create portable cloud-native applications.
"Cloud native computing based on Kubernetes is driving a wave of innovation in the software industry" said Chris Aniszczyk, Chief Technology Officer of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. "Jakarta EE has the potential to establish Java as a first class language and platform in this space. Given Java's broad adoption in the enterprise, Jakarta EE can enable millions of developers to build and deploy cloud native applications."
## II. New community-driven open source governance model
By following the Eclipse Foundation’s proven open source governance model, Jakarta EE promises faster release and innovation cycles. The Eclipse top-level project managing the Jakarta EE codebase has already committed to two releases in 2018. Specifically, the Jakarta EE Working Group seeks to lower barriers to adoption, develop the community and manage the Jakarta EE brand on behalf of the community. Critical to this approach is the community-based specification process, with everyone encouraged to participate in an open process that more accurately reflect the needs of the wider community.
"Java enterprise application servers and APIs are among the most important development infrastructure in the world, and are the underlying technology that millions of people use everyday to run their lives." said Bruno Souza, President of SouJava. "Jakarta EE is a huge win for the worldwide open source community, that will take control of this fundamental development infrastructure. The challenges posed by distributed systems and cloud native applications require an interactive development process, with frequent releases. Jakarta EE will bring speed and innovation to enterprise software development and developers and companies should join the project and take part in this unique opportunity to shape the future of technology. "
## III. Get involved in the Jakarta EE community
By joining the Jakarta EE Working Group, members can participate in an open process to shape the future of cloud native Java. Members will play a key role in defining Jakarta EE strategic themes and priorities, shape the definition and evolution of the specifications process, gain insights to the technology roadmap and help protect their investments in Java EE.

The Eclipse Foundation conducts largest survey to date of Java community on key priorities for future releases of Jakarta EE.
<!--more-->
**OTTAWA, April 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)** -- The Eclipse Foundation, the platform for open collaboration and innovation, today announced the release of its first survey of the Jakarta EE community to reveal the top priorities of developers for evolving the technology stack. For many years, Java EE has been the de facto platform for millions of developers and operators running enterprise systems -- offering reliable multi-vendor standards, ubiquitous in datacenters across every industry, and delivering stability and scalability on the back-end of the world’s mission critical applications. In late 2017, Oracle [announced](https://blogs.oracle.com/theaquarium/opening-up-ee-update) that it was transferring the future of Java EE technologies to the Eclipse Foundation, to make the process of evolving its standards “more agile, flexible and open.”
[The Eclipse Foundation conducted a worldwide survey](/documents/insights/2018-jakarta-ee-developer-survey.pdf) of more than 1,800 Java developers worldwiden March 2018 to identify top priorities in the developer community for critical new technical capabilities in future iterations of Jakarta EE. Two of the community’s top three priorities for Jakarta show a consensus that the platform evolve to support cloud native development, while the third priority emphasizes the need for a faster pace of innovation on the platform.
“Jakarta EE’s mission is more frequent releases, lowered barriers to participation, and putting the community back into the platform,” said Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director at Eclipse Foundation. “In this first polling of the community, the feedback was very specific that developers seek more cloud native support for enterprise Java systems. This means not only continuing the evolution of popular projects like Eclipse MicroProfile, but exploring integration with other projects in the cloud native stack, recruiting major cloud providers to contribute code, and deeper focus on the cloud modernization use cases that so many enterprise Java shops face today.”

Jakarta EE is a new undertaking and everything that has occurred previously on the Java EE platform will remain called Java EE and comply with licensing agreements with Oracle. Future work will be led by the Jakarta EE Working Group, a consortium of vendors working collaboratively with a global community of open source developers operating under the auspices of the Eclipse Foundation.
The stakeholders of the Jakarta EE community are committed to a cloud native future for the platform. According to the Eclipse Foundation survey, two critical gaps in Java EE are now top priorities for Jakarta: better support for microservices and cloud native integration with Kubernetes, the open source system for automating deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications that was originally designed by Google and is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. At the same time, developers want to see more releases and more rapid innovation.
## Better Support for Microservices (60%)
* Nearly half (45%) of the developers surveyed are already building microservices, with another 21 percent planning to join them in the next year. It’s only a matter of time before most of the rest follow suit. There will always be some laggards. But a full 95 percent of the respondents said they are using Java to build microservices, which is followed by Docker containers at just over 50 percent.
## Native Integration with Kubernetes (57%)
* Half of survey respondents said they ran only a fifth of their Java applications today in a cloud. But over 30 percent said that within the next two years they expect to be running 60 percent of more of their applications in the cloud. Kubernetes emerged in the survey as a favored path for making Jakarta EE cloud native, although other alternative paths may still emerge in the working group. Nearly a third of respondents report they are already working with Kubernetes.
## Faster Pace of Innovation (47%)
* Nearly half of the respondents said Jakarta EE needs to innovate faster than the legacy Java EE platform. Jakarta EE is about defining the future of Java in the enterprise -- especially when it comes to building cloud native applications. As scores of other hugely successful open source projects have shown, a consortium of vendors can drive acceleration at a much faster and sustainable rate than any single vendor or standards body.
The arrival of Jakarta EE represents a renaissance for the Java community. Survey respondents made it clear that as Java EE is evolving into Jakarta EE, this remains the platform they rely on most to build true enterprise-class applications. Under the Eclipse Foundation, the Jakarta EE Working Group will be based on a self-governing meritocracy that sets all technical agendas and plans. Details on the roadmap for Jakarta EE will be emerging in the months to come. The founding members of the Jakara EE Working Group are Fujitsu, IBM, Oracle, Lightbend, Payara Systems, Pivotal, Red Hat, Tomitribe and Webtide.
