Oracle plans two major Java EE upgrades for the cloud

Modernizing Java EE (Enterprise Edition), the server-side version of Java, for the cloud and microservices will require two critical upgrades to the platform. Version 8 is set to arrive in late 2017, followed by Java EE 9 a year later, Oracle revealed on Sunday.

Although Java EE already is being used in cloud deployments, Oracle sees a need to better equip it for this paradigm, said Anil Gaur, Oracle’s group vice president of engineering, at the JavaOne conference in San Francisco. To this end Java EE 8, which had already been mapped out, will receive two additional sets of capabilities: one for configuration of services, and the other for health checking to monitor and manage services communications.
