One of the most important things to do at this stage of the life-cycle of Java EE is highlight successful adoption stories at a regular cadence. We have been doing just that for a long time through our adoption stories blog, this humble blog as well as JavaOne. In the past few months celebrated Java EE advocate and Java Champion Adam Bien has been really helping out in this regard as well through his popular blog. One of the interesting adoption cases Adam highlighted is production Java EE 7 usage at safsms.com.

SAFSMS stands for SAF School Management Software. It comes out of Nigeria's vibrant startup ecosystem and is a web-based application for managing school processes and student records. Currently over 200 schools are using SAFSMS. It is completely based on Java EE on the server side. SAFSMS is soon going to be offered as Software as a Service (SaaS) likely via Amazon EC2. Faiz Bashir, the key engineer behind SAFSMS, noted the simplicity, ease-of-use and productivity offered by Java EE 7 that makes it well suited to ambitious startups like his. SAFSMS utilizes GlassFish 4.x, Git, NetBeans, Arquillian and Docker. They are also considering adopting Java SE 8 and Jenkins. Faiz confidently remarked "I will choose Java EE always without any hesitation". You can read the full details of the adoption story on Adam's blog.

JavaOne 2015 was particularly good in terms of compelling Java EE adoption story session proposals that we could accept. You should start seeing those sessions show up in the live content catalog. We will of course share those stories here if you cannot come to JavaOne.

If you have a similarly great Java EE adoption story to share with the community (particularly migration stories from other technologies), please do feel encouraged to reach out. In the spirit of Java EE centric vendor neutrality, what Java EE implementation or tool set you choose does not matter at all and neither does which part of the globe you are in.
