A lot of progress has been made since we have announced, 2 weeks ago, our intent to move the Java EE development to the Eclipse Foundation. Today, we are thrilled to announce EE4J (Eclipse Enterprise for Java), a new top level Eclipse project that will host this initiative.
We are just at the beginning of this effort. Oracle, IBM, Red Hat and the Eclipse Foundation are actively collaborating to move as quickly as possible despite all the tasks that need to be tackled. We also plan to rapidly engage additional community members to help us. And as Mike Milinkovich (Eclipse) says in his announcement "it is a massive but exciting undertaking"!
