Last week, Oracle announced their intentions to open Java EE and transfer it to an open source foundation to continue its development in a more open way. I’ve been involved in some email discussions (here and here) and in a conference call organized by Oracle and I want to summarize what I know and expect in the future. I’m also a MicroProfile project member, so I’ll comment on its relation and future benefits to Java EE. (more…)
As Oracle provided little information to what will happen to critical projects that are already hosted on java.net, most of what was written in the article is still valid. Therefore I’m reposting my comments here again.
