Oracle wants to give up de-facto sole ownership of Java EE

Strike Two! It seems the MicroProfile and Java EE Guardians initiatives finally reached their target: Oracle is willing to give up the de-facto sole ownership of Java EE! While officially Java EE since long time was an open standard developed by the “democratic” organization JCP (Java Community Process), it was de-facto solely controlled and owned by Oracle. The company allowed the community to contribute, but not to control, and ignored the community’s will a lot of times in the past. This lead to counter actions, mainly driven by the MicroProfile and Java EE Guardians initiatives, with the target to have better progress and more control of future Java EE releases. Hence it is a great step that David Delabassee this night announced on the official Oracle blog that they are willing to let others be really equal, and that feedback from the community is explicitly requested how the future of Java EE’s ownership shall look like. This really made my day!

Java Community Strikes Back

Strike One! The Java community unleashed its power by rejecting Oracle’s Java Module System in the first try. A slap into the face of Mark Reinhold who reacted too late and in the false way to the broad critics. Let’s see if he is willing to learn. CU in 30 days.
