We’re excited to announce that Microsoft has joined the Eclipse Basis Jakarta EE and MicroProfile Working Teams as an Enterprise and Company member, respectively. Our objective is to assist advance these applied sciences to ship higher outcomes for our Java prospects and the broader neighborhood. We’re dedicated to the well being and well-being of the colourful Java ecosystem, together with Spring (Spring makes use of a number of key Jakarta EE applied sciences). Becoming a member of the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile teams enhances our participation within the Java Neighborhood Course of (JCP) to assist advance Java SE.
Over the previous few years, Microsoft has made substantial investments in choices for Java, Jakarta EE, MicroProfile, and Spring applied sciences on Azure in collaboration with our strategic companions. With Crimson Hat, we’ve constructed a managed service for JBoss EAP on Azure App Service. We’re additionally collaborating with Crimson Hat to allow sturdy options for JBoss EAP on Digital Machines (VMs) and Azure Crimson Hat OpenShift (ARO). With VMware, we collectively develop and assist Azure Spring Apps (previously Azure Spring Cloud), a completely managed service for Spring Boot purposes. And with Oracle and IBM, we’ve been constructing options for patrons to run WebLogic and the WebSphere product household on VMs, Azure Kubernetes Service, and ARO. Different work features a first-party managed service to run Tomcat and Java SE (App Service) and Jakarta Messaging assist in Azure Service Bus.

Our strategic companions
Microsoft is actively bettering our assist for operating Quarkus on Azure, together with on rising platforms corresponding to Azure Container Apps. The expanded funding in Jakarta EE and MicroProfile is a pure development of our work to allow Java on Azure. Our broad and deep partnerships with key Java ecosystem stakeholders corresponding to Oracle, IBM, Crimson Hat, and VMware energy our Java on Azure work. These strategic companions share our enthusiasm for the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile journeys that Microsoft has embarked upon.
“We’re thrilled to have a corporation with the affect and attain of Microsoft becoming a member of the Jakarta EE Working Group. Microsoft has warmly embraced all issues Java throughout its product and repair portfolio, significantly Azure. Its enterprise prospects may be assured that they are going to be actively collaborating within the additional evolution of the Jakarta EE specs that are defining enterprise Java for as we speak’s cloud-native world.”—Mike Milinkovich, Government Director, Eclipse Basis.
“We welcome Microsoft to the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile Working Teams. We’re happy with our collaboration with Microsoft in delivering Oracle WebLogic Server options in Azure, that are serving to prospects to make use of Jakarta EE within the cloud. We look ahead to extra collaboration within the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile Working Teams.”—Tom Snyder, Vice President, Oracle Enterprise Cloud Native Java.
“IBM’s collaboration with Microsoft has proven Jakarta EE and MicoProfile operating properly in various Azure environments on the Liberty runtime, so it’s thrilling to see Microsoft now becoming a member of the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile Working Teams. I look ahead to seeing Microsoft bringing one other perspective to the Working Teams based mostly on their expertise and wishes for Azure prospects.”—Ian Robinson, Chief Know-how Officer, IBM Software Platform.
“It’s nice to see Microsoft formally be part of each MicroProfile and Jakarta EE as they’d been informally concerned in these efforts for a very long time. I hope to see Microsoft’s participation convey expertise from their many customers and companions who’ve developed and deployed enterprise Java purposes on Azure for a number of years.”—Mark Little, Vice President, Software program Engineering, Crimson Hat.
“We’re excited to see Microsoft supporting the Jakarta EE Working Group. Jakarta EE serves as a key integration level for Spring purposes and we look ahead to the long run evolution of frequent specs like Servlet, JPA, and others. Microsoft delights builders with their continued assist of the Java ecosystem together with their work with VMware on bringing a completely managed Spring service to Azure.”—Ryan Morgan, Vice President, Software program Engineering, VMware.
Trying to the long run
As a part of the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile working teams, we’ll proceed to work carefully with our long-standing companions. We imagine our expertise with operating Java workloads within the cloud can be beneficial to the working teams, and we look ahead to constructing a powerful future for Java along with our prospects, companions, and the neighborhood.
