Jakarta EE 9 is coming! This is the second release of Jakarta EE since the transition from the Java Community Process (JCP) to the Eclipse Foundation. In this session, we will go through every aspect of Jakarta EE 9 and how this release lowers the barriers of entry, eases the migration, and lays the foundation for a platform for future innovation. We will also look ahead towards what future releases may bring. The session includes a demo including converting from the javax. to jakarta. namespace as well as looking at available implementations.
