Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-6726) Create jakarta.* spec APIs
Date Fri, 10 May 2019 13:23:00 GMT


Manfred Huber commented on GERONIMO-6726:

Ah okay, I was afraid it's a made desicion... I think it's gonna be a huge and bad impact
on the EE dev side ...
If I understood the consequences correctly all AS vendors need to re-package their spec implementations
to {{jakarta.*}} if this is gonna happen !?
I don't wanna think about the time this is gonna take ... :(

> Oracle does not allow to evolve the former JavaEE specs under the javax.* package name
as they claim to own the full 'Java' trademark.
> While this may or may not be true it might be wise to not pursue a legal battle.
> Thus we will move all the specs to use the jakarta.* package names.
