Java EE 8 Survey Final Results

Check out this 8-step guide to see how you can increase your productivity by skipping slow application redeploys and by implementing application profiling, as you code! Brought to you in partnership with ZeroTurnaround.

As many of you know, we have been reaching out to the community through the Java EE 8 survey to solidly kick start the next revision of the platform. While the first and second parts of the survey asked for input about specific items to consider, the third and last part of the survey asked the community to prioritize among a distilled subset of the most popular features. We closed the last part of the survey last Monday and now are very proud to share the final results with you. The survey effort has been very successful with close to 4500 total responses.

The following pie-chart shows how the community prioritized things (the percentages indicate the points a feature received and features are ordered by popularity):

Java EE specification lead Linda DeMichiel posted the detailed results of the final part of the survey on her personal blog. If you haven't done so already, you should also make sure to check out the detailed results from parts one and two.

We are all very thankful to the community for taking the time to take the survey. Hopefully many of you will stay engaged as we move forward with Java EE 8. One of the best ways to stay engaged is joining one of the expert groups listed on the java.net project for the Java EE specification. Remember that for many specifications you can also simply join the user alias for a specification, enter a JIRA or vote on an issue even if you are not part of the expert group itself.

Finally, we'll post updates on this blog as we move forward with Java EE 8, so do stay tuned.
