Eclipse’s enterprise Java roadmap: more services coming

The Eclipse Foundation is preparing the next round of technologies to be added to enterprise Java, which it now runs. (Last year, the foundation was charged with developing Java EE (Enterprise Edition), in the wake of Oracle’s abdication of its stewardship of the project.)

Eclipse expects about 35 to 40 new projects as part of its open source enterprise Java implementation.

The foundation expects Eclipse Enterprise for Java (EE4J) project to ship a Java EE 8-compliant project as soon as possible, with a release of the GlassFish application server and related projects. GlassFish has served as a reference implementation of enterprise Java. Java EE 8 has been set as the baseline for Eclipse’s development of new enterprise Java standards.

After having moved forward with the initial nine Java EE proposals in November, Eclipse expects code from other projects to move over to Eclipse as well. Oracle will propose that Eclipse take on JSON-B API, which offers a standard binding layer to convert Java objects to or from JSON messages. Oracle also is set to move JavaMail, for building messaging and mail applications, for inclusion in the enterprise Java upgrade.
