Today Bruno Borges, Principal Developer Advocate for Java at Microsoft, announced that his company likes to join the Jakarta EE working group. Why this is worth a note? Because Jakarta EE is the new trade name of the industrial standard formerly known as Java EE (Java Enterprise Edition) and Microsoft -at least so far- did not have a product implementing this complete umbrella standard (it did support only few bricks).
I once said that Microsoft will get rid of Windows in favor of Linux, and this is happening right now. I also once said that Microsoft will drop C# and Dotnet in favor of Java and Java EE. So maybe you understand now, why I think this is exciting news!
