EclipseCon 2021 Community Day is on Monday, October 25 15:00 to 21:00 CET (the day before the start of the main EclipseCon conference). Community Day at EclipseCon has always been a great event for Eclipse working groups and project teams. This year both EclipseCon and Community Day is virtual and free. Space for Community Day is limited, so please register and save your spot soon.
We have a packed agenda centered on the Jakarta EE, MicroProfile and Cloud Native Java communities. If there is a set of very focused sessions you should attend on these topics, the agenda offers the one place this year to do so. The sessions are intended not only for learning, but also for the community to actively engage with some key leaders.
Myself, Werner Keil and Petr Aubrecht are organizing on behalf of the community. We are grateful to have a very strong line-up both in terms of speakers and content. Below is a very good snapshot. Please note that all times are Central European Time (CET).

Tanja Obradovic and Ivar Grimstad from the Eclipse Foundation will be providing a good overview of the current status of Jakarta EE in Jakarta EE Community State of the Union. This will include Jakarta EE 9, Jakarta EE 9.1 as well as Jakarta EE 10. If there is one session to learn about Jakarta EE status, get involved and ask questions, this session is it.
IBM’s Emily Jiang will be doing the same thing for MicroProfile in MicroProfile Current and Future. So if you want to know about MicroProfile, this is the session you should make a point to attend. Emily will cover MicroProfile 4.0, MicroProfile 4.1 and MicroProfile 5.0.
The Security API is likely be to a key component of Jakarta EE 10. In What’s Coming to Jakarta Security, Arjan Tijms will be covering the likely changes as well as how you can contribute.
Steve Millidge will do the same thing for the Concurrency API in Jakarta Concurrency Futures. Similar to the Security API, the Concurrency API will play an important role in Jakarta EE 10.
REST continues to be one of the more active and popular technologies in the Jakarta EE family. In Jakarta REST – Looking Ahead, IBM’s Andy McCright will cover some of the important changes you can expect in the REST API for Jakarta EE 10.
Last but certainly not least, Otavio Santana will provide an overview of the new NOSQL API in Jakarta NoSQL and the Future of Polyglot Persistence in Java. He will overview the API, discuss what is available right now, what is coming and how you can contribute.
