Ubiquitous across the technology landscape, Java is the world's most popular programming language and serves as the backbone of countless innovative technologies. As the global standard in community-driven enterprise software, Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) is a vital platform for the development and delivery of enterprise-grade applications and services. To that end, Oracle and the Java community are constantly innovating to drive Java EE forward and deliver value to end-users. At JavaOne 2014, Oracle highlighted key updates to the Java EE platform, including upcoming groundbreaking features in Java EE 8, and also introduced the latest version of GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 4.1.

At JavaOne 2014, Oracle is showcasing the latest developments for Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) and future plans for Java EE 8. In addition, the company is introducing GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 4.1, which provides updated platform support, new features, and an improved developer experience. Java EE 8, the next generation of Java EE, has been approved by the Java Community Process (JCP) Executive Committee as Java Specification Request (JSR) 366 and is slated to be released in 2016.


As the industry standard for Java enterprise computing, Java EE enables multiple implementations, which lowers risk by offering enterprises a choice of product implementation and vendors. In addition, Java EE provides a reliable foundation that evolves to meet the needs of enterprise applications. Java EE 8 will offer improved HTML5 support to deliver scalable services to mobile devices and browsers, ease of development for improved developer productivity and less boilerplate code, and cloud enablement for portable applications in cloud environments. Java EE 8 is defined within the JCP, which ensures a transparent forum that encourages collaboration among individuals, vendors, and enterprises to create the Java EE 8 specification.
