Jakarta EE can be defined as a set of open source specifications that enables Java developers to work on cloud native Java enterprise applications. Jakarta EE was formerly Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) and Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE).
Jakarta EE specifications are either grouped into a platform specification (Full or Web Platform) or can be an individual specification.
Regardless of the grouping all Jakarta EE specifications consist of
As enterprises modernize their infrastructure for cloud, microservices and containers, the technological transformation requires a new governance model that provides faster release cycles to keep pace with innovation, along with an open source, community-driven evolution of the platform.
As Contributing Members of the Eclipse Foundation, we’re dedicated to helping shape the future of open source, and continuously invest our resources and expertise to the improvement, innovation, and development of open source technologies and Jakarta EE. Our involvement allows us to support the sustainability of the community, participate in marketing programs, and have direct access to the governance of both the Jakarta EE Working Group and the Eclipse Foundation. Steve Millidge, Director of Payara, is also a Project Management Committee member of Jakarta EE. The Payara team are also contributing to optimizing Enterprise Java for microservices architectures to help enterprises make their journey into the cloud, working closely with customers to shape Jakarta EE to meet their future needs, and are active committers to the Eclipse MicroProfile initiative.
Jakarta EE 10 is HUGE NEWS.
It is the first release since Jakarta EE (then Java EE) was donated to the Eclipse Foundation that actually brings new features. Old APIs are getting removed; consistency is being added; and the new Core Profile is meeting user needs when it comes to microservices, by creating a foundation for RESTful microservices.
Java was created in 1995 and despite being over 25 years old, it’s still one of the most popular and widely used programming languages in the world. Due to its longevity – many myths around Java EE (now Jakarta EE) have circulated. In this eBook, we’ll discuss the most common myths and show you why the programming language is still relevant, how it keeps up with the changes in the IT world and show there is a future in Jakarta EE.
In our “Dismiss the Myths” webinar series, we discuss the common myths surround Java EE / Jakarta EE and show you the programming language is still relevant, keeps up with the changes in the IT world, and that there is a future in Jakarta EE.

Java Records, one of the major highlights of the Java 16 release, provides a concise and immutable way to define classes for modelling data. This conciseness lends itself useful in a typical Jakarta EE application that can have a number of layers that need to share data. For example the data layer might want to return a subset of a given data set to a calling client through a data projection object. The REST layer might want to have separate entities for server and client side among others. This blog post explores the adoption of Java Records in a Jakarta EE application as a data transfer and projection object.

YAML is a simple, human-friendly data serialization language for all programming languages. It is the main format for working with Docker. As a language agnostic format, there are many bindings for all the major programming languages. You can easily consume and return data in the YAML format in your Jakarta REST application using message body readers and writers.
Oftentimes in a Jakarta REST application, you may need to access some metadata about a given resource method matched by the Jakarta REST runtime, outside of a resource class. This could be so as to dynamically alter the client's request based on some custom business requirement, or for informative purposes. For example, in a Jakarta REST component like an exception mapper, you might want to get the currently matched resource method and get its HTTP method.
