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

The state of portable authentication in Java EE, end 2016 update

In the beginning and middle of this year we looked at how well modern Java EE servers supported portable authentication (JASPIC) in Java EE. As the end of 2016 approaches we take a third look to see how things are progressing. Since our last time new versions of all servers have been released. Payara went from 163-beta to 164, WildFly went from 10.0 to 10.1, Liberty beta went from 2016-5 to 2016-11, WebLogic went from 12.2.1 to 12.2.1.2 and TomEE went from 7.0 to 7.0.2. We also added a new server, namely Tomcat. Tomcat was indirectly already tested via TomEE, but given the importance of standalone Tomcat we decided to put this one in explicitly. Do note that Tomcat is not a full or web profile Java EE server, so the integration tests for technologies it doesn't support (like JSF, CDI, etc) are simply omitted. Tests were added for request.authenticate , an injected CDI request , the servlet path after a forward , isMandatory in a SAM , and finally for a SAM request to be seen
