This session provides an overview of what is coming in Java EE 8. It describes the results of Oracle’s Java EE 8 community surveys, how Oracle converged on the planned Java EE 8 feature set, and its plans in the following areas:
• Enhanced support for HTML5 applications and other web tier features such as server-sent events, the new JSON-B JSR for binding JSON text to Java objects, support for HTTP 2.0, and additions to the WebSocket API
• CDI alignment and ease of use with security interceptors and timed events for managed beans, extended use of CDI scopes, and pruning of superseded technology
• Continued support for portable cloud applications, including configuration of multiple tenants
• Leveraging of new features of Java SE 8
