  • The new core profile provides a subset of the Jakarta EE specifications for smaller runtimes suitable for microservice development with lightweight runtimes, including the new CDI-Lite specification for building lightweight Jakarta EE applications.
  • Jakarta Servlet 6.0 for simplified programming and improved security
  • Jakarta Faces (JSF) 4.0 with a modern API that uses CDI
  • Jakarta JSON Binding (JSON-B) 3.0 adds support for polymorphic types
  • Jakarta Persistence standardizes UUIDs to basic types and extends the query language and query API

Jakarta EE 10 release enables organizations building modern cloud-native Java applications to.

  • Develop and deploy Jakarta EE 10 applications on Java SE 11 and Java SE 17 (the latest LTS version of Java SE)
  • Take advantage of new features such as the module system introduced in Java SE 9 and supported in Java SE 11
  • This release simplifies application development by supporting wider use of additional annotations, makes it easier to build modular applications, and provides improved integration across component APIs.
  • This release helps developers more easily implement applications with modern security requirements and removes deprecated APIs, while maintaining a high level of compatibility with previous Jakarta EE releases.

In addition to these enhancements, there are a growing number of compatible products to support the already rich ecosystem. For example, Eclipse GlassFish 7, Open Liberty,, and Wild Fly 27.0.0 are currently being offered as compatible versions.
