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.

In a previous article we took a look at an obscure Java EE application server that's only known in Korea and virtually unknown everywhere else.

Those servers are the following: NEC WebOTX Hitachi Application Server Fujitsu Interstage AS In this article we're going to take a quick look at the first one of this list: NEC WebOTX. While NEC does have an international English page where a trial can be downloaded it only contains a very old version of WebOTX; 8.4, which implements Java EE 5. This file is called otx84_win32bitE.exe and is about 92MB in size. As with pretty much all of the Asian application servers, the native

OmniFaces 2.1-RC1 has been released!

We are proud to announce that OmniFaces 2.1 release candidate 1 has been made available for testing. OmniFaces 2.1 is the second release that will depend on JSF 2.2 and CDI 1.1 from Java EE 7. Since Java EE 7 availability remains somewhat scarce, we maintain a no-frills 1.x branch for JSF 2.0 (without CDI). For this branch we've simultaneously released a release candidate as well: 1.11-RC1. A full list of what's new and changed is available here . OmniFaces 2.1 RC1 can be tested by adding the following dependency to your pom.xml: <dependency> <groupId>org.omnifaces</groupId> <artifactId>omnifaces</artifactId> <version>2.1-RC1</version> </dependency> Alternatively the jars files can be downloaded directly . For the 1.x branch the coordinates are: <dependency> <groupId>org.omnifaces</groupId> <artifactId>omnifaces</artifactId> <version>1.11-RC1</version>
