Just a little over a year ago, the MicroProfile initiative was born. The community first heard about it at the DevNation conference in San Francisco on the 27th June last year. During the keynote panel, the five founding members (Red Hat, IBM, Tomitribe, LJC, and Payara) announced their collaboration and their main goal - to make it easier for developers to use familiar Java EE technologies and APIs for building microservice applications.
In the official announcement published on the Aquarium blog today, Oracle revealed that it seriously considers moving Java EE to an open source foundation.
We’re very excited to announce two new Payara Team members - Arjan Tijms and Gaurav Gupta, who joined us last week!
I'm sure some of you recognise their names - both Arjan and Gaurav are passionate Java EE advocates and community contributors. Arjan is a member of the JCP, Founder of the OmniFaces project and the zeef.com website; while Gaurav is a NetBeans Dream Team member and a creator of Jeddict ( formerly known as JPA Modeler).

Lately there has been a lot of talk about microservices - a new way to develop and design enterprise applications. In this document, written by David Heffelfinger - an independent Java EE expert - we aim to cut through the hype, explaining microservices in terms that make sense to Java EE developers.
Let’s rewind to the first half of the year
2016 - what a year it was for Java EE! As most of you probably remember, around spring time, some worrying rumours started spreading in the Java community about Oracle abandoning Java EE. To make things worse, crucial members of the Oracle Java EE team were leaving, including Cameron Purdy, Reza Rahman, Mark Heckler and John Clingan.
