In 20 years working in open source and Java standards I've never seen such a truly diverse and equally shared effort as that required to ship Jakarta EE 8. Source code has been donated, but what emerged is a community that bravely accepts change, innovates open processes and repeatedly choses shared victory over individual success. When we look back in 10 years at all we've accomplished in Jakarta, everyone will agree this was the singular moment in time that shaped our future.

As the future of Java EE development moves to Eclipse and becomes an Open Source Developed Specification, Fujitsu has joined Eclipse as a Strategic Member in order to continue its participation in the evolution of Java EE as Jakarta EE, providing it in the cloud native world.

IBM helped create Java EE and guide it through its teenage years and I’m delighted to see the progress made under Jakarta EE. I look forward to Jakarta EE and MicroProfile becoming the open standard for cloud native innovation and the technology we need for Java in the cloud.
