2019 Jakarta EE
Developer Survey Report

Cloud native has emerged as an important strategy for IT modernization and business transformation initiatives. The enterprise marketplace has a strong desire to see Jakarta EE, the successor of Java EE, evolve to support containers, microservices, and multi-cloud portability. For their part, developers need open specifications and tools that build upon the decades of enterprise-grade Java experience to create dynamic and scalable cloud native applications. Powered by a well-governed and vendor-neutral open source ecosystem, Jakarta EE represents the best way to move mission-critical Java EE applications and workloads to the cloud.

The objective of the 2019 Jakarta EE Developer Survey was to help Java ecosystem stakeholders better understand the requirements, priorities, and perceptions of enterprise developer communities.
