This June of 2013 is being a pretty good time for people interested in Java and Java EE.
Almost at the same time three of the most important technologies I am using nowadays are releasing new major versions:
- Oracle released Glassfish 4 on June 12th: you can find a short article with the new features in infoq.com
- Eclipse is going to launch Eclipse Kepler on June 26th, as always very punctual on their releases. Really i wish that Kepler will make us forget all the troubles that came with Juno release.
- People developing JBoss are launching the Alpha version of Richfaces 5. With this version I expect that this framework will become mature and will begin to explode the components available in it.
So, three of the pillars of my current work are now publishing important new versions. I expect to include them in our company projects in the next months.
