Java EE vs Jakarta EE compliance -- what's the difference?

There used to be only one game in town for application servers -- You were either Java EE compliant or you weren't.  And, to claim Java EE compliance, a special license was required that allowed you access to the test suites that would prove compliance.  Some vendors and open-source projects obtained this license, while others did not.  In short, it was not a level playing field.  But, all of that is changing now that the Java EE test suites are being contributed to Eclipse under the EE4J project (Jakarta EE).  All of these tests will now be freely available under the Eclipse Public License
