A Very Clear Plan

—By Stephen Chin, Oracle lead Java community manager

Reconfirming for the Java community that Oracle “has a very clear plan” for the next Java Enterprise Edition, Thomas Kurian, Oracle’s president of product development, has outlined several forthcoming improvements to the foundational application development platform. As customers shift to cloud deployments and adopt microservice application architectures, the Java platform must be modernized to “be viable in the new world” of cloud computing, Kurian said last week in an interview with InfoWorld

Kurian announced plans for a Java EE 8 release, including the following improvements: 

• Support for multitenant cloud deployments 

• Architectural support for microservices 

• Support for Docker and other container technologies

• Capabilities to take advantage of NoSQL

• Support for emerging authentication and authorization models 

“At the end of the day,” Kurian told InfoWorld, “we believe that if we’re doing the right thing for the developer community, we believe the developer community will rally around it.”
