Java EE 8/Adopt-a-JSR Updates: Morocco JUG!

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

It is truly heartwarming to see Adopt-a-JSR moving forward! Although it is still the early days a number of JUGs worldwide have already adopted Java EE 8 JSRs. The Morocco JUG had been at the forefront of Adopt-a-JSR from the very start. In fact the JUG was awarded as an "Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant" for their contributions to Java EE 7. It should be no surprise the JUG is committed to helping Java EE 8 move forward through Adopt-a-JSR as well. In JUG leader Badr El Houari's own words - "Our goal is helping to shape the best Java enterprise platform ever!".

With that ambitious goal in mind the Morocco JUG started their year with a meeting on Adopt-a-JSR and Java EE 8. Held at the IBM Innovation Center in Casablanca the meeting was a full house with over ninety developers participating. Badr explained the Adopt-a-JSR program to JUG members and shared what JSRs he was hoping to support:

  • CDI 2
  • MVC
  • JMS 2.1
  • JSF 2.3
  • JAX-RS 2.1
  • JSON-B

Details on the meeting are blogged on the Morocco JUG website. The Morocco JUG also has a very helpful guide for JUG members that would like to start contributing to Java EE 8 JSRs right now.

We are sure to see great things from the Morocco JUG on Adopt-a-JSR and Java EE 8. Is your JUG adopting a Java EE 8 JSR yet :-)?
