Jakarta EE Survey 2020/2021 - results

The survey was promoted in October, after which we got about 500 responses. The survey was left alone for the next months, until a little promotion was done in February, resulting in about 100 extra responses.

We see that J2EE 1.4 and Java EE 5 usage is very low, though there's still a sizeable amount of people using Java EE 6 (about 10%). When we zoom a little into the Java EE 6 figure, we learn that Java EE 6 users do for a large part use higher versions as well: As Java EE 8 and Jakarta EE 8 are functionally identical, and differ mainly by their license, it's perhaps interesting to look at how these two relate to each other. For that we looked at the results where people said to only use Java EE 8, only use Jakarta EE 8, or said to use both of them: As can be seen ab
