Are you an Enterprise Java Developer? Or even a Java developer? If yes, then here is your chance to make your voice heard in the2023 Jakarta EE Developer Surveythat is currently on-going. The survey is organized by the Jakarta EE Working Group, the body responsible for steering the development and advancement of cloud native Java development at the Eclipse Foundation.

In this code-focused webinar we took a look at how you can use the Google Cloud Firestore NoSQL database service in a Jakarta EE application. The recording is now available to watch - see below or head over to our YouTube Channel.

With advantages such as flexible data models, generally faster queries, support for horizontal scaling and easier developer experience, NoSQL is a great alternative to have in your developer toolbox.
Jakarta EE 10, the first major release of the platform since it was transferred to the Eclipse Foundation, did come with a slew of changes and updates to many of its constituent specifications. One such specification that received updates is the Jakarta Contexts and Dependency Injection specification. The specification release version for Jakarta EE 10 is Jakarta CDI 4.0, which came with major changes.
Two of such major changes are the split of the specification into a Lite and Full profiles and the change in default behaviour for an empty beans.xml file. In this blog post, we take a quick look at getting started with Jakarta CDI, in my view, the single most influential specification on the Jakarta EE Platform.
