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. Indeed JavaOne 2015 was particularly good in this regard. We had a number of solid adoption stories submitted that we could select from. We will highlight all of those stories here in the coming months. A particularly nice adoption story presented at JavaOne 2016 was from Segurnet Portugal on migrating from Java EE 5 to Java EE 7. 

Segurnet is a data sharing platform for key insurers in Portugal. It used by 65 companies, about 30,000 users with close to 1.5 million page views and over 3 million server requests. Roberto Cortez detailed how the platform was recently migrated from legacy Java EE 5 to Java EE 7 - showing specific code examples. As the end result of the migration Roberto noted latest technology adoption, improved standardization, simplicity, a net reduction in code, an increase in productivity, faster deployment times and better performance. Roberto's experience is typical for anyone considering such a migration. You can view the session below (click here if you are having trouble seeing the embedded video):


The slide deck for the talk is available on SlideShare. 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.
