Mike Milinkovich of the Eclipse Foundation has recently posted a blog providing an overall update on the status of the project. To summarize:

  • We are working on defining a new brand name using the community process described here.
  • We have begun the process of moving Oracle GlassFish sources to the EE4J project. So far, Oracle has contributed sources for the following projects:  EE4J GitHub repos
    • Eclipse Grizzly
    • Eclipse OpenMQ
    • Eclipse Project for JAX-RS
    • Eclipse Project for JMS
    • Eclipse Tyrus
    • Eclipse Project for WebSocket
    • Eclipse Project for JSON Processing
  • In addition to the above:
    • The Eclipse Yasson and EclipseLink projects have been transferred to EE4J, and are now part of the overall EE4J project.
    • We have created Eclipse Jersey and Eclipse Mojarra projects and are working on contributing sources for these.
  • You can watch (and star!) EE4J project repositories as they are being created in the EE4J GitHub organization.
  • Oracle is working on Eclipse project proposals for all of the technologies Mike mentions in his blog: JSON-B API, Concurrency, Security, JTA, JavaMail, JAX-B, JAX-WS, JSTL, UEL, JAF, Enterprise Management, and Common Annotations. We intend to formally propose these projects to the EE4J Project Management Committee (PMC) very soon. One of our major near-term goals is to transfer all of the Oracle-owned GlassFish technologies to EE4J such that we can build "Eclipse GlassFish" from EE4J sources and demonstrate Java EE 8 compliance.
  • We are working on establishing an Eclipse Foundation working group to provide a member-driven governance model for EE4J.

In short, there is a lot of positive progress being driven in the EE4J project. For further updates refer to this blog and the links provided above, or subscribe to the ee4j-community mailing list.
