Jakarta EE Survey 2020

At OmniFaces we poll the community from time to time about Java EE (now Jakarta EE) and related technologies. With the transfer of Java EE to Jakarta EE now almost completed, people are now starting to think about Jakarta EE 10 , the first Jakarta EE release after Java EE 8 having new featues. As such it's a good time to poll the community again. In the 2020 edition, there are 4 categories of questions again: Current usage of Java EE / Jakarta EE Servlet containers APIs related to Java EE / Jakarta EE The future of Jakarta EE Compared to 2018, we simplified some of the questions somewhat, omitting some of the less popular options to make it more manageable. We added questions about the future of Jakarta EE and MP together, the preferred Jakarta EE cadence, and generally updated the choices (such as adding Quarkus , which wasn't quite on the radar in 2018 and our own Piranha Cloud ). Jakarta EE provides the opportunity to revitalise and modernise Java EE, but i

A couple of implementations are somewhat less known such as Resin and Geronimo/WASCE, but you'd expect many advanced Java EE developers to have heard of those. Yet another implementation is JOnAS, which arguably is much less known.

These seem to be virtually unknown among general Java EE users. The only way I found out that these servers even existed was because of them being mentioned on Oracle's Java EE compatibility page . The most famous of these unknown servers is JEUS; every ~3 years it makes it in
