Red Hat Drives Leadership in Java EE Innovation

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, continued its longstanding leadership in the Java community by driving and submitting several new specifications for the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 7 (JSR 342). The new Java Specification Requests (JSRs) submitted by Red Hat create standards for Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and cloud deployments, offering Java users consistency, flexibility and portability across on-premise and cloud environments. These new JSRs reflect Java EE's position as one of the most flexible and adaptable application platforms in the market.

With more than nine million Java developers worldwide, Java continues to be a leading platform of choice for developers. Java EE 7 includes enhancements that enable Java EE 7-based applications to run more easily in the cloud, and new and extended application program interfaces (APIs) to improve developer performance, including Context and Dependency Injection (CDI), Web Sockets, HTML 5 for mobile applications, Java Message Service (JMS) 2.0, and Bean Validation. Java EE 7 also incorporates features for multi-tenancy, security, application management, application scalability and cloud management.

The new specifications submitted and led by Red Hat include:

  • Context and Dependency Injection 1.1 – CDI simplifies and unifies various layers of a Java EE application by providing a standard model for Dependency Injection and lifecycle management and to allow components to interact in a loosely coupled way. The result is simpler, more maintainable and more portable applications without having to introduce non-standard, proprietary frameworks.
  • Data Grids – Distributed data grids allow easier and more cost-effective scaling for the data-tier, which is essential for large-scale cloud or utility computing and multi-tenant application platforms.
  • Bean Validation – provides a consistent approach to implementing validation logic throughout an application, from the persistence layer to the presentation layer. The unified approach helps avoid duplication and inconsistencies, ultimately resulting in speedier development.

In the spirit of the Java Community Process, Red Hat is also collaborating on other important Java EE 7 technologies including:

  • Java API for RESTful Web Services 2.0 (JSR-339);
  • Java Message Service 2.0 (JSR-343);
  • Java Server Faces 2.2 (JSR-344); and
  • Java Content Repository API (JSR-333).

“Java is a living, viable standard and platform for enterprise and cloud applications,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager, Middleware Business at Red Hat. “Red Hat is committed to an open, community process and we intend to continue to be at the forefront of Java’s future.”

In addition to driving these new specifications, Red Hat is already delivering upon the vision of Java EE 7 in its community projects and enterprise cloud offerings. JBoss Infinispan, the widely-used JBoss Community project that works with the new data grid JSR, is expected to ship in the upcoming release of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat’s commercial application platform offering. Red Hat is already incorporating application isolation, security, class loading, application versioning and quality-of-services capabilities that are part of Java EE 7, and PaaS capabilities into its middleware offerings.

Red Hat’s leadership in Java EE 7 continues its history of leadership and innovation in the Java community. Through its history, Red Hat has worked to make Java more relevant and to help Java EE evolve from a rigid, monolithic platform, to a highly productive, lightweight, modular application fabric for cloud and on-premise deployments.

Red Hat was one of the primary drivers of Java EE 5 and Java EE 6 and has applied its extensive developer and cloud experience to help lead the effort for Java EE 7. In addition to its role on the Java Community Process (JCP) Executive Committee, Red hat has been a Java Specification Leader or Expert Working Group member for more than 35 key JSRs. Red Hat drove one of the most important and impactful JSRs in Java EE 6 – JSR 299 (Context and Dependency Injection). Red Hat was also the driver for Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) 3, JavaServer Faces, Java Persistence API, and Bean Validation – all standards that have made Java EE more robust and flexible, and easier for developers to use.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
