Community, Jakarta EE and MicroProfile
I've written a lot recently about the future of Eclipse MicroProfile and Jakarta EE recently. If you're reading this then hopefully you'll have seen those other entries (if not, scroll up?) I've taken a personal stance which may not be exactly the same as Red Hat's stance but as I've said already, this is a tricky series of connected decisions the entire community needs to make and there's no right or wrong answer. However, I wanted to write one more smaller article to just say thanks to the community for their very active involvement in the conversations. Whether through the email threads which have been kicked off, Twitter, face-to-face in various timely conference sessions, etc. it's warming to see the interest in the topic and the passion as well as commitment to the future of enterprise Java. I hope this doesn't wane as we move forward. As one of my predecessors used to say: Onward!
