Java EE Survey 2018

At OmniFaces we poll the community from time to time about Java EE and related technologies. With all the changes that are about to happen with the move of Java EE to Eclipse and the subsequent renaming to Jakarta EE, we expanded the survey a little for this year.

In the 2018 edition, there are 4 categories of questions:

  • Current usage of Java EE
  • Servlet containers
  • APIs related to Java EE
  • The future of Java EE / Jakarta EE

Jakarta EE provides the opportunity to revitalise and modernise Java EE, but in order to do that it's more important than ever that we know what matters to all of its users out there.

So therefor we'd like to invite all Java EE users to participate in The Java EE Survey 2018

Payara 5 is the first release that will include all of the Java EE 8 and MicroProfile 1.2 components, including a special build of Mojarra (JSF 2.3) based on the 2.4 master in which a lot of refactoring has been done, and a special build of Soteria (Java EE Security) based on the 1.1 master with several bug fixes.

The full list of changes are available from the links given below:

Payara 5 runs all the Java EE 7 samples, all the Java EE 8 samples and all of the MicroProfile 1.2 samples.

If no major bugs surface Payara 5 Final should be released soon.
