The results of our 2022 Jakarta EE Developer Survey reveal that there is growing confidence in the Jakarta EE ecosystem. 

Held from March 9 to May 6, 1,439 developers participated in the survey to share their perspective on what is needed to support modern enterprise applications. Here are some of the key findings:

  • Jakarta EE is the basis for the top frameworks used for building cloud native applications.
  • The top three frameworks for building cloud native applications, respectively, are Spring/Spring Boot, Jakarta EE and MicroProfile, though Spring/Spring Boot lost ground this past year. It’s important to note that Spring/SpringBoot relies on Jakarta EE developments for its operation and is not competitive with Jakarta EE. Both are critical ingredients to the healthy enterprise Java ecosystem. 
  • Jakarta EE 9/9.1 usage increased year-over-year by 5%.

Our survey report also highlights the community’s top priorities for Jakarta EE, revealing that developers want better integration and support for their more advanced implementations right now.
