Oracle Issues Statement on Java EE 8
Jul 8, 2016 — Oracle Vice President of Marketing Communications and Global Public Relations Mike Moeller issued the following statement to the press.
“Oracle is committed to Java and has a very well defined proposal for the next version of the Java EE specification – Java EE8 – that will support developers are as they seek to build new applications that are designed using micro-services on large-scale distributed computing and container-based environments on the Cloud. Oracle is working closely with key partners in the Java community to finalize the proposal and will share the full details with the broader Java community at JavaOne in September.”
We should all be thankful and humble to receive a timely response from Oracle. The response is understandably short on details at the moment. The community should treat the lack of detail as an opportunity to continue to constructively engage Oracle while remaining duly vigilant. We need to all work together to continue ensure the well being of the Java and Java EE ecosystems. Hopefully the forward plans for Java EE will be developed collaboratively through the JCP and with direct community input.
We are working to update our charter to at least acknowledge the current statement from Oracle. In the meanwhile, we continue to need your support. In particular it is very important to continue to sign our petition and encourage others to do the same. A strong show of support will ensure things keep moving in the right direction for all of us.
Above all, thank you for your continued strong support.
