September was a BIG month in Java. 

Jakarta EE 10 came out - alongside the first compatible products certified against the Jakarta EE 10 platform. Payara 6 Community was one of them!

Also this month = one of the biggest Java conferences in the community, JConfDev, took place in Chicago; and we hosted our webinar with Azul, where we examined AOT vs JIT compilation (video to come). 

We also saw the GA of Java 19! Phew...

To honour this special month, as well as collating the best performing general Java and Enterprise Java content we've shared, we've rounded up all the Jakarta EE 10 resources we've created.
We've got you covered, from an in-depth look into new features for developers to higher-level content for those who may be less 'in-the-know'.
