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.

This means IBM's newer and much lighter Liberty (abbreviated WLP), will be a true alternative for the older and incredibly obese WebSphere (abbreviated WAS) where it purely concerns the Java EE standard APIs. From having by far the most heavyweight server on the market (weighing in at well over 2GB), IBM can now offer a server that's as light and small as various offerings from its competition. For this article we'll be specifically looking at how well JASPIC works on Liberty. Please ta
