Jakarta EE 9 and Beyond

Jakarta EE 9 lowers the barriers of entry, ease migration, and lays a foundation for future innovation.

In this session, I will go through what Jakarta EE 9 brings to the table and how this release lowers the barriers of entry, eases migration, and lays the foundation for a platform for future innovation.
We will also look ahead to what future releases may bring. The session includes a demo including converting from the javax. to jakarta. namespace as well as looking at available implementations.
