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 anticipation of the final version of those Java EE 7 servers we already took a look at how they improved. The results are shown in the table below. For reference we show several older versions as well. For Payara we took the GlassFish release upon which Payara based its additional fixes, while for WildFly it's a selection of older builds. (no less than 29 builds were released for WildFly 8,9,10
