Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-6726) Create jakarta.* spec APIs
Date Fri, 10 May 2019 22:12:00 GMT


Mark Struberg commented on GERONIMO-6726:

Hi [~downdrown]!
It is pretty much 100% fix that the javax.* namespace will not be touched and JakartaEE will
have to move. 
I guess you've seen my blog post, right?
There will be tools to support downstream users. I guess that NetBeans, Eclipse and Idea will
have this on board. I expect a timeframe of about 9 months before you'll see the first full
servers and eco system being migrated. I think migrating a user project will be updating dependencies
+ an hour of work. Given all deps are available for jakarta.* then it should be pretty much
straight forward.

> 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.
