After a few months of a break, due to the situation of the pandemic, we continue with our meetups. For the first time in the form of an online event. This meetup is realized in cooperation with the regional communities interested in Java and related technologies. Hopefully, we’ll have such joined events in the future, too.
The topics for this meetup are:
1. Cloud Native Java: Present and Future at Eclipse Foundation [slajdovi]
For many years, Java EE has been the de facto standard for delivering secure, robust, scalable multi-platform applications and services. The world’s leading innovators in Java are collaborating at the open source Eclipse Foundation to advance enterprise Java technologies to support the migration of mission-critical workloads to the cloud. Jakarta EE is taking over the relay baton from Java EE as a community effort in the Eclipse Foundation with the focus on enabling community-driven collaboration and open innovation for the cloud. The transfer of the Java EE technologies to the Eclipse Foundation also opens up for very interesting synergies and collaboration with other open source technologies for Cloud Native Java such as Eclipse MicroProfile. This session will give you an update on the current state of Jakarta EE and look ahead at how the continued development of the platform will look like.
Presented by: Tanja Obradović (@TanjaEclipse)
Tanja joined Eclipse Foundation as Jakarta EE Program Manager June 2018. Having been involved with Java and Java EE for quite some time, revitalizing Enterprise Java seems like a good challenge and a great fit for her! Outside the office, she loves spending time with her family and friends, enjoys art events, outdoor activities (even in the winter!), visiting different countries and most of all spending summers on a beach.
2. Java 14 / Java 15: What’s old, what’s new? [slajdovi]
Just a few weeks ago Java celebrated its 25th birthday. We would like to join the celebration by briefly reviewing Java history, major milestone features and releases. But our focus in this presentation will be (now “old”) features which came in March with Java 14 and what new features we can expect Java 15 will bring us in September.

As it was the case on the previous meetups, expect some nice and valuable giveaways for the participants.
We are looking forward to seeing you at this online event! Stay safe!
