  • GlassFish Embedded – A simple way to run Jakarta EE apps
    In this article, I’m going to share how I use GlassFish Embedded in my project is APILoader. APILoader has a server component and a client component but they are deployed differently depending on the needs of their users. The server component can be deployed either on a central GlassFish Server, or together with the client component in a GlassFish Embedded container.

  • GlassFish now runs on JDK 21!
    GlassFish, an open source Jakarta EE Platform implementation, is a code base that goes back a long time, in essence all the way back to 1996. It’s also a fairly large code base. Therefor it’s not surprising perhaps that in all that time it obtained some cruft between all those lines of code, which made it challenging to run on modern versions of the JDK.
  • Upgrade to Jakarta EE 10 – part 2: Transform Application Source Code
    We explain how you can automate transforming the application’s source code to use the Jakarta EE 10 APIs. This will enable you to use new features in Jakarta EE 10 as well as newer versions of external libraries that require Jakarta EE 10.

  • Jakarta EE Survey 2022/2023 – results
    Last year we started a survey about Jakarta EE.  In this survey we asked several questions about Jakarta EE, what people use exactly, and what they would like to see next. The survey was promoted in September 2022. The survey was left alone for the next months, until a little promotion was done towards the end of the year. In total we ended up with 720 respondents in total, which is slightly up from the 684 we got last time.

  • EJB support in Piranha via CDI
    Enterprise Beans was once the face of Java EE, but as we discussed a while ago, is currently de-emphasised in Jakarta EE. However, since there’s so much existing code using Enterprise Beans, a certain level of support is still desired. Piranha Cloud, a relatively new runtime supporting Jakarta EE, takes a somewhat novel approach to Enterprise Beans. Instead of implementing a separate container, Piranha Cloud, via the OmniBeans project, maps Enterprise Beans annotations to equivalent functionality in CDI itself, or to technologies in Jakarta EE leveraging CDI (such as Jakarta Transactions). Enterprise Beans features not currently present in Jakarta EE, such as the pooled … Read more
