If Jave EE or Eclipse is you thing, then this may interest you.

https://adtmag.com/articles/2017/09/12/java-ee-moving-to-eclipse.aspx wrote:Oracle has chosen the Eclipse Foundation to be the new home of the Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE), the company announced today. Oracle made the decision in collaboration with IBM and Red Hat, the two other largest contributors to the platform.


Looks like Eclipse may become the recommended editor for Java EE.

The article also states that this will happen "soon", yet did not give a timeline for this.

My understanding is that Oracle doesn't want to manage the Java EE technology anymore and will be moving it (and related technologies) to the Eclipse Foundation.

I don't think that IntelliJ is going to concede that space to Eclipse .

Check out the Java EE Guardians who have been instrumental in poking Oracle into getting Java EE moving and eventually giving it away. They examined a number of open source options including Apache and Eclipse Foundation.

Interesting, I did not know about Java EE Guardians.

Thanks for sharing that tidbit of information Jeanne.

I'm not sure that the move itself will make much of a difference. IMO, these big monolithic releases of JEE don't make much sense any more. Few organization use all of what they offer, and there seems to be more demand for smaller pieces of it, sort of like the JEE web profile, or the approach TomEE takes. If they restructure it so that individual pieces can move at their own pace (e.g., JAX-RS moving faster than JAX-WS), and it becomes possible to add official specs/APIs without waiting for major releases - now that would be something I would welcome.

More or less, what you described is the goal of microprofile initiative. Huge and monolithic appservers cannot easily cope with microservices and cloud-based applications; microprofile initiative aims to bring new life to Java EE by simplifying it and allowing developers to pick up what pieces of specificiation they really need.
I think that Oracle's move may accelerate this process.
