Description: Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) is an enterprise application deployment platform standard. Java EE leverages universal standard, platform and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that facilitate the writing, development, deployment, and management of multi-tier, server-centric applications. The Java EE standard is used for offloading common infrastructure tasks through its container-based infrastructure. The standard uses the object-oriented Java programming language and it extends the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE). Note: This is a standards entry and does not itself expressly approve software. Please see the related technology entries for approved software that may be installed.

On September 12, 2017, Oracle Corporation announced that it would submit Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation. Jakarta, Enterprise Edition (Jakarta EE) is the standard in community-driven enterprise specifications supported by the Eclipse Foundation. The Eclipse Jakarta EE Platform project produces the Jakarta EE platform specification, which is an umbrella specification that aggregates all other Jakarta EE specifications. Jakarta EE editions are not covered by this TRM entry because Jakarta EE is under a new management structure. Jakarta EE will need to be reviewed and approved under its own and separate TRM entries.
