We’re excited to announce that Microsoft has joined the Eclipse Basis Jakarta EE and MicroProfile Working Teams as an Enterprise and Company member, respectively. Our objective is to assist advance these applied sciences to ship higher outcomes for our Java clients and the broader group. We’re dedicated to the well being and well-being of the colourful Java ecosystem, together with Spring (Spring makes use of a number of key Jakarta EE applied sciences). Becoming a member of the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile teams enhances our participation within the Java Neighborhood Course of (JCP) to assist advance Java SE.
Over the previous few years, Microsoft has made substantial investments in choices for Java, Jakarta EE, MicroProfile, and Spring applied sciences on Azure in collaboration with our strategic companions. With Pink Hat, we’ve constructed a managed service for JBoss EAP on Azure App Service. We’re additionally collaborating with Pink Hat to allow sturdy options for JBoss EAP on Digital Machines (VMs) and Azure Pink Hat OpenShift (ARO). With VMware, we collectively develop and help Azure Spring Apps (previously Azure Spring Cloud), a totally managed service for Spring Boot purposes. And with Oracle and IBM, we’ve been constructing options for patrons to run WebLogic and the WebSphere product household on VMs, Azure Kubernetes Service, and ARO. Different work features a first-party managed service to run Tomcat and Java SE (App Service) and Jakarta Messaging help in Azure Service Bus.
