EE4J, MicroProfile, and the future of enterprise Java

At DevNation 2016, we saw the creation of MicroProfile by Red Hat, IBM, and others, pushing the bounds of Java EE into the world of microservices. This solution was rapidly donated to the Eclipse Foundation, joined by Fujitsu, Oracle, and others. Then, in September 2017, Oracle, working with Red Hat and IBM, moved to donate all of Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation under the EE4J project and create a new process to steer its future away from the control of a single vendor.

What does all of this mean for the future of enterprise Java, especially as it relates to public and hybrid cloud? What about the future of Red Hat implementations, such as Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes, which includes WildFly Swarm? Why should you be interested and how can you get involved? In this session, we'll discuss answers to these questions—and more.
