Jakarta NoSQL 1.0 (under development)

Jakarta NoSQL is a Java API standard that streamlines the integration of Java applications with NoSQL databases. It defines a set of APIs and provides a standard implementation for most NoSQL databases. The goal is to create the specification in Jakarta EE to help Jakarta EE developers create enterprise-grade applications using Java® and NoSQL technologies. It helps them create scalable applications while maintaining low coupling with the underlying NoSQL technology.

In general, we made some progress, especially with the creation of TCKs: All APIs proved to be quite stable, except for the Graph API, and that is why there is no API for graphs. We are waiting for the definition of a standard graphical communication API, either Apache TinkerPop or Open Cypher, led by Neo4J. Therefore, we only have a Graph implementation side, but not in the API, at least for a while. Regarding the migration to Jakarta EE facilities, we already have a Draft PR ready as soon as the new version of Jakarta EE is released:

A point that we are also studying is the Quarkus and Micronaut effect that uses the Annotation Processor instead of reflection and seeing how to make an API that is possible in both directions.

We’ve removed the Duke references in the spec docs and also in all GitHub repositories. We replaced the “artemis” and “diana” package names and put “mapping” and communication respectively instead.

We are still waiting to discuss the integration between Eclipse MicroProfile and Jakarta EE to check how the MicroProfile dependency will work.

Platform and Profile Specifications

The Jakarta EE Platform and Profile specifications are the umbrella specifications for the individual specifications. The Jakarta EE Platform includes most of the individual specifications, while the Profile specifications include the individual specifications for developing web platforms and microservices architectures.

Individual Specifications

Each individual specification describes a standardized way of implementing a particular aspect of an enterprise Java application.
