There are multiple ways to get into Java software engineering. Many people will have heard of Java EE. They might be aware of the history of enterprise Java computing, some will know about the origins of Java EE, its controversial past, but also the surprising imaginative concepts of this fundamental piece of commercial and open source work, and how Java EE was a standard bearer for most of the life of the Java Virtual Machine. This talk will give a background in Java EE, we will pick up the pieces and find out the answers to several questions. We will examine several terrific innovations, we will also find why these were simply not enough to beat the competition. We will look at Java EE’s prognosis and answer 'How will Jakarta EE meet the challenge of micro-services oriented architecture M/SOA?' and 'How does the Microprofile deliver the sustainable promise for the current cloud-native and future digital applications?'
