The Eclipse Foundation Announces the Results of the 2021 Jakarta EE Developer Survey
BRUSSELS, Belgium, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Eclipse Foundation, one of the world’s largest open source software foundations, today announced the results of the industry’s most prominent survey for technical insights into enterprise Java, the 2021 Jakarta EE Developer Survey. The results definitively showcase significantly increased growth in the use of Jakarta EE 9 and interest in cloud native Java overall. The 2021 Jakarta EE Developer Survey Report is available to download on the Jakarta EE website.
“Since the ‘big bang’ move to the jakarta namespace with Jakarta EE 9, enterprise Java has been experiencing something of a renaissance,” said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. “With the plan for Jakarta EE 10 already formalized and the continued growth in the use of Jakarta EE 9, the cloud native future of open source enterprise Java has never looked brighter.”
The objective of this survey, now in its fourth year, is to help Java ecosystem stakeholders better understand the requirements, priorities, and perceptions of enterprise developer communities. The survey also sought to help the Java ecosystem gain a better understanding of how the cloud native world for enterprise Java is unfolding and what that means for their respective strategies and businesses. Conducted from April 6 to May 31, 2021, 940 individuals participated in the survey. Java EE 8, Jakarta EE 8 and Jakarta EE 9 have now seen 75% adoption among respondents.
Additional key findings from this year’s survey include:
As part of the report on the survey’s findings, the Eclipse Foundation has also incorporated specific recommendations for both enterprises and technology vendors and their respective enterprise Java strategies. These include recommendations related to technology migration, application portability, balancing traditional enterprise applications with cloud native applications and more.
