Update on Eclipse Jakarta EE Rights to Java Trademarks

The big news this week was around an update to Jakarta EE's rights to use Java trademarks. You can read the announcement here by Mike Milinkovich. Essentially, it's not been possible for Oracle and the Eclipse Foundation to come to an agreement on a seamless transition for beyond Jakarta EE 8. As a result the Jakarta EE community will not be able to modify the javax namespace. You can read Mark Little's views of this announcement here. Mark later followed up (here and here) with some of his personal views on the announcement and provided some insight on the paths he sees going forward.
