The road to Jakarta EE

Today, the Eclipse Foundation is making multiple announcements related to Jakarta EE that includes the unveiling of https://jakarta.ee and the Jakarta EE logo, the results of the developer survey, etc. It's probably a good time to reflect on how we got here...

As we approach the delivery of Java EE 8 and the JavaOne 2017 conference, we believe there is an opportunity to rethink how Java EE is developed in order to make it more agile and responsive to changing industry and technology demands. Java EE is enormously successful, with a competitive market of compatible implementations,...
