Obviously this book was printed before the name change. But I'm curious - have people started using the new Jakarta EE name at work?

No. And I suspect for me personally it'll take a good while longer - Jakarta to me is the former name of the Apache Commons project, and as such signifies something outdated, not something new.

. . . even though, according to Wikipedia, it isn't even in Apache's hands.

Heh, most of the time, I say "J2EE" unless I'm referring to something that was new or changed by JEE. I expect to do the same for Jakarta EE. And especially since I remember when there was this thing called Jakarta Tomcat getoffamylawn.

I'm in an interesting situation anyway with JSF, since JSF ran under J2EE as an externally-supplied framework, but became integral to the standard in JEE.

Oh, you're right, Jakarta was the umbrella term. I was thinking of Jakarta Commons. But that was the only subproject where I ever heard people actually use the term "Jakarta".
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
