Life at Eclipse

Musings on the Eclipse Foundation, the community and the ecosystem

Java EE Moves to the Eclipse Foundation

with 11 comments

Oracle announced today that they, along with IBM and Red Hat, will be moving Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation. I would like to welcome everyone involved to our community. We look forward to working with all of the participants in the Java EE ecosystem as it moves to a more open and collaborative development model.

Java EE has been at the center of enterprise computing for almost twenty years. As enterprises move to a more cloud-centric model, it is clear that Java EE requires a more rapid pace of innovation. The open source model has been shown time and again to be the most successful way to innovate in today’s world. The Eclipse Foundation is focused on enabling open collaboration among individuals, small companies, enterprises, and the largest vendors. The Eclipse MicroProfile project is, we believe, an excellent example of the developer community led style of collaboration we support. We look forward to supporting the Java EE community as it creates the platform for the next twenty years of business applications.

  8. Sounds good. MicroProfile already showed it’s hard to cope within a single project, so it sounds like that project will need a couple of sub-projects right from the start.

  10. […] 1. Welcome the Java EE community to the Eclipse Foundation. Oracle announced today that they along with IBM and Red Hat will be moving Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation. The Eclipse Foundation is focused on enabling open collaboration among individuals small companies enterprises and the largest vendors. We look forward to supporting the Java EE community as it creates the platform for the next twenty years of business applications. 2. ‘The Russian campaign’s use of Facebook has distressed some employees, according to internal communications.’ The multifaceted Russian information operation targeting the presidential election had many elements including the hacking and leaking of Democratic emails regular attacks on Hillary Clinton by the RT television channel and the online news site Sputnik and the creation of fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter. Senator Mark Warner of Virginia the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee told reporters on Tuesday that he wanted Facebook and Twitter to testify in public session about the Russian use of their sites. Though some ads mentioned the presidential candidates or the election most to focus on amplifying divisive social and political messages across the ideological spectrum touching on topics from LGBT matters to race issues to immigration to gun rights wrote Alex Stamos the chief security officer. 3. Um..WAT?!? BBC News – Equifax had ‘admin’ as login and password in Argentina We learned of a potential vulnerability in an internal portal in Argentina which was not in any way connected to the event that occurred in the United States last week an Equifax spokeswoman told the BBC. The discovery came less than a week after Equifax revealed that a separate breach meant about million US consumers and an undisclosed number of British and Canadian residents might have had personal details exposed. It simply should happen and responding that they have now fixed the issue is not the point it puts a huge question mark over whether Equifax have been applying the appropriate resources to online security elsewhere. 4. Trump stopping Chinese-backed purchase of chipmaker is just 4th deal blocked because of nat sec concerns in 27 yrs President Donald Trump blocked a investor from buying Lattice Semiconductor casting a cloud over Chinese deals seeking security clearance and spurring a call for fairness from Beijing. The government is also examining an agreement by Chinese conglomerate HNA Group to buy a stake in SkyBridge Capital LLC the firm founded by Anthony Scaramucci who was briefly White House communications director. China the largest chip market has been on the hunt for acquisitions in the field as it looks to build a domestic supply and rely less on imports as the billion global semiconductor industry undergoes its biggest wave of consolidation. 5. Well that escalated quickly. Trump administration orders purge of Kaspersky products from U.S. government The decision represents a sharp response to what intelligence agencies have described as a national security threat posed by Russia in cyberspace following an election year marred by allegations that Moscow weaponized the internet in an attempt to influence its outcome. Rob Joyce the White House cyber security coordinator said Wednesday at the Billington CyberSecurity Summit that the Trump administration made a to order Kaspersky products removed from federal agencies. Also on Wednesday Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar wrote to DHS asking whether the agency used Kaspersky products in relation to any critical infrastructure such as election equipment banks or energy suppliers and if it knew whether any voting systems used the software. 6. SV managed to invent a culturally insensitive vending machine In a world where we get our groceries delivered in just two hours through Instacart or Amazon Fresh the humble corner bodega as they are known in New York and Los performs a valuable function. In fact replacing that beloved institution seems explicit in the very name of venture a Spanish term synonymous with the tiny stores that dot urban landscapes and are commonly run by people originally from Latin America or Asia. Bodega has very accurate demographic details about the people who live in a particular community and would use the service giving brands a chance to put particular products in front of their target consumer. 7. A: “admin” / “admin” Q: How did Equifax Argentina secure its portal to manage credit report disputes? team of nearly employees includes two native Argentinians who spent some time examining South American operations online after the company disclosed the breach involving its business units in North America. It took almost no time for them to discover that an online portal designed to let Equifax employees in Argentina manage credit report disputes from consumers in that country was wide open protected by perhaps the most password combination ever. It is unclear whether the complete lack of security at Veraz unit in Argentina was indicative of a larger problem for the online employee portals across the region but difficult to imagine they could be any worse. 8. The best apology is to change your name And run by people who in addition to selling everything from toilet paper to milk also offer an integral human connection to their patrons that our automated storefronts never will. We see a future where anyone can own and operate a Bodega delivering relevant items and a great retail experience to places no corner store would ever open. Like bodegas we want to build a shopping experience that stands for convenience and ubiquity for people who have easy access to a corner store. 9. EU lost up to 5.4 billion euros in tax revenues from Google, Facebook. Why no UK inquiry or test cases? The document seen by Reuters will be published on Thursday the day before EU finance ministers begin a meeting in the Estonian capital Tallinn in which they will discuss how to increase taxes on large online businesses accused of paying too little in Europe. This resulted in estimated revenue losses for EU states other than Ireland of between and billion euros between and the report concluded. He plans to introduce an amendment that would force online multinationals to pay taxes in the EU countries where they are present with a that generates at least million euros of annual turnover. 10. The Skybridge/HNA deal still hasn’t closed. The smart money says it never will. President Donald Trump blocked a investor from buying Lattice Semiconductor casting a cloud over Chinese deals seeking security clearance and spurring a call for fairness from Beijing. The government is also examining an agreement by Chinese conglomerate HNA Group to buy a stake in SkyBridge Capital LLC the firm founded by Anthony Scaramucci who was briefly White House communications director.
