Java EE 7 was released just recently. And now it seems to be the time of preparing to the design on Java EE 8. There are already some wishlists published in the blogs:

I might we wrong, but I don't remember seeing (or hearing) from anyone what is the ultimate goal of all these improvements. IMO, Java EE should take a look on Ruby-on-Rails or Play! and try to inspire from the coherent nature of those frameworks. Currently, my feeling is that Java EE looks like a collection of different specs that integrate with each other to a certain degree. But actually to be productive, one shouldn’t care about the names of the specs (CDI, JAX-RS, EJB, etc), but instead “just write” the code. Java EE could just really align itself better with RoR.
