Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-6726) Create jakarta.* spec APIs
Date Sat, 11 May 2019 06:44:00 GMT


Romain Manni-Bucau commented on GERONIMO-6726:

[~struberg] today we dont know so this issue should be "suspended". Just to give an insight,
my main work project must stay on javax.annotation and javax.json, jakarta is not an option
cause we expose it as an API and it must stay stable. Spring users will also not do it that
fast too. App classloader users - meecrowave, tomee, ... - will also have troubles and will
not benefit from a bytecode hack. Any NoSQL mapper will be in trouble as well and will not
be migrated in a year. So IMHO sed is unlikely for users even if trivial for vendors.

> 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.
