The Jakarta EE 8 Full Platform, Web Profile specifications and related TCKs have been officially released today (September 10th, 2019). This release completes the transition of Java EE to an open and vendor-neutral process and provides a foundation for migrating mission-critical Java EE applications to a standard enterprise Java stack for a cloud native world.
August felt a little bit quieter than previous months, with many people gearing up for the busy conference season. However there were still plenty of juicy pieces of content to be found.
Below you will find a curated list of some of the most interesting news, articles and videos from this month. Cant wait until the end of the month? then visit our twitter page where we post all these articles as we find them!
Another great month in the bag. There were awards, conferences, out of incubation releases, competitions, surveys and lots more going on.

Another very busy month for the Payara team! We had our annual "Payara Week" where we fly everyone in the company to our UK HQ for a week of close collaboration, celebration, review and fun! We also announced our new partner program "Payara Radiate".
Today the Eclipse Foundation have announced an Update on Jakarta EE Rights to Java Trademarks which has dramatic implications for the future of Java EE and Jakarta EE. The Payara team have only recently learned about this - so we thought we would blog about how we feel this impacts customers and users of the Payara Platform. We'll also give our thoughts on how Jakarta EE should evolve given the constraints outlined in Mike Milinkovich's blog from the Eclipse Foundation.
Java EE 8 introduced a new API called the Java EE Security API (see JSR 375) or "EE Security" in short.
This new API, perhaps unsurprisingly given its name, deals with security in Java EE. Security in Java EE is obviously not a new thing though, and in various ways it has been part of the platform since its inception.
So what is exactly the difference between EE Security and the existing security facilities in Java EE? In this article we'll take a look at that exact question.
There are many acronyms in the Java world. Here's a list of some commonly used acronyms and what they mean.
JCP - Java Community Process
The Java Community Process is simply the process by which Java EE was developed. It's an open process that anyone can apply to become a part of. To find out more about the JCP, visit their website: https://www.jcp.org
One of our key goals for the Payara Platform is to enable developers to use the Java EE skills they have honed over many years to take advantage of new infrastructure, architectures and programming models. We fundamentally believe that a managed runtime platform combined with industry standard APIs like Java EE and in the future Jakarta EE is a perfect fit for cloud and containerized infrastructure. Java EE has always separated the development of applications from the construction and management of the infrastructure to run those applications using the concept of deployment artifacts. This has a natural fit to cloud and container platforms including in the future serverless models.
