Community Day at EclipseCon has always been a great event for Eclipse working groups and project teams. Community Day is on Monday, October 25 (the day before the start of the main conference). Community Day is virtual and free, and open to anyone who registers for EclipseCon 2021. To register, visit the EclipseCon 2021 Registration page.
We have a packed agenda centered on the Jakarta EE, MicroProfile and Cloud Native Java communities. If there is a set of very focused sessions you should attend on these topics, the agenda offers the one place this year to do so. The sessions are intended not only for learning, but also for the community to actively engage with some key leaders. Don’t miss this opportunity!
Please note that all times are Central European Time (CET).

Jakarta EE Community State of the Union
Join this session to get the current status of Jakarta EE. First, we will give a quick overview of Jakarta EE and how to get involved in the work with producing the specifications. Then we will recap the Jakarta EE 9 release and the significance of this release, including the namespace change from javax.* to jakarta.*. The rest of the session will be geared toward what's coming in Jakarta EE 10. We will look at what the various specifications are planning as well as the brand new Jakarta EE Core Profile. This is the session to join if you want to learn about the Jakarta EE community, the technologies, and how to get involved. This is your opportunity to get your questions answered.
MicroProfile Community Current and Future
MicroProfile has undergone a big transformation last year and established the MicroProfile working group in October 2020. In December 2020, MicroProfile 4.0 was released with many feature updates and then followed by MicroProfile 4.1. MicroProfile has been collaborating with Jakarta EE and trying to define a great ecosystem so that both communities can help each other. In 2021, MicroProfile has been focusing on aligning with Jakarta EE 9.1 and plans to release MicroProfile 5.0. In this session, Emily is going to bring you up to date with the latest MicroProfile release and then briefly discuss the future roadmap for MicroProfile. Come along to this session to listen or ask questions.
What's Coming to Jakarta Security
Jakarta EE 10 will be the first major new version of Jakarta EE, after its two year+ long transition from Java EE. In this talk we'll look at one of the key components of Jakarta EE 10; the Security API. Security is an overarching aspect of an application, and Jakarta Security is fundamental for applications ranging from traditional MVC to Jakarta REST based microservices. In this session we will dive into everything that's in the works for the new version of this API, and provide an overview of some of the existing implementations.
Jakarta Concurrency Futures
Jakarta Concurrency is the successor of the Java EE Concurrency API. Jakarta Concurrency provides concurrency primitives aligned with Java SE that work in the Jakarta EE environment. For Jakarta EE 10 the team wants to significantly upgrade Jakarta Concurrency. In this talk Steve Millidge, the lead of the Jakarta Concurrency project, will talk you through some ideas for new features in Jakarta Concurrency targeted for Jakarta EE 10 and will outline how you can contribute to shape the future of Jakarta Concurrency.
Jakarta REST - Looking Ahead
Jakarta RESTful Web Services (aka JAX-RS) is one of the more active and popular APIs in the Jakarta EE family. As RESTful services continue to dominate as the communication choice for microservice architectures as well as public facing APIs, it is vital to learn about Java's premier API for creating and consuming RESTful services. In this session, we'll take a look at what is currently available. We'll then look into the future to see how these APIs will evolve and how you can contribute. This session will leave time for interactive Q&A, so please bring your questions, ideas, complaints, and other feedback with you.
Jakarta NoSQL and the Future of Polyglot Persistence in Java
NoSQL databases bring a new perspective to persistence technology within the Java architecture toolbox. And this type of database is increasing in popularity even in the most conservative spaces like the financial sector. Jakarta NoSQL is an API whose objective is to facilitate integrating NoSQL databases and a corporate application using Jakarta EE. This session will leave time for interactive Q&A, so please bring your questions, ideas, complaints, and other feedback with you.
