Multiple JavaEE 6 players before year's end
By alexismp on Sep 27, 2010
This year's Java EE panel (session 313278) had a full house of participants (seven of them!) representing vendors and independent consultants and the discussion covered quite a bit of ground in a packed room.
Alexis has a transcript of the main points discussed.
One of the first things mentioned in the transcript is the availability of multiple Java EE 6 implementations before year's end (in final format) and an overall commitment from all to get there soon. This is excellent news for developers who do not want to tie themselves to any early adopter. Now's a good time to move to Java EE 6.
"Collaborate on standards, compete on implementations". In the GlassFish team, we certainly like to compete!
