‘Java EE’ Has Been Renamed ‘Jakarta EE’

An nameless reader quotes i-Programmer:
The effects are in for the vote at the new title for Java Enterprise Edition, and unsurprisingly the voters have chosen Jakarta EE. The renaming has to occur as a result of Oracle refused to let the title Java be used. The vote was once to make a choice from two choices – ‘Jakarta EE’ and ‘Enterprise Profile’. According to Mike Milinkovich, govt director on the Eclipse Foundation, virtually 7,000 other people voted, and over 64% voted in favour of Jakarta EE. The different finalist, “Enterprise Profile,” got here in at simply 35.6% of the votes when voted ended final Friday.

“Other Java projects have also been renamed in Eclipse,” notes SD Times. “Glassfish is now Eclipse Glassfish. The Java Community Process is now the Eclipse EE.next Working Group, and Oracle development management is now Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Management Committee.”
