  • Jakarta Security 3.0 supports new features in OpenID Connect and Jakarta Persistence queries and creates Jakarta Faces views using pure Java
  • The Jakarta EE 10 release defines a new profile specification using the Jakarta EE Core Profile 10 that defines a multi-vendor platform for modern and lightweight Java applications and microservices.
  • The new core profile provides a subset of the Jakarta EE specifications for smaller runtimes suitable for microservice development with a lightweight runtime, including the new CDI-Lite for building lightweight Jakarta EE applications specification.
  • Jakarta Servlet 6.0 to simplify programming and improve security
  • Jakarta Faces (JSF) 4.0 with modern API using CDI
  • Jakarta JSON Binding (JSON-B) 3.0 adds support for polymorphic types
  • Jakarta Persistence normalizes UUIDs as primitive types and extends query language and query API
  • Jakarta Concurrency 3.0 moves to Web Profile, enhancing parallel and reactive programming models available to applications

Jakarta EE version 10 enables enterprises 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 releases of Java SE
  • Take advantage of new features like 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 building modular applications easier, and provides improved integration across component APIs.
  • This release helps developers more easily implement applications with modern security requirements and removes deprecated APIs, while also maintaining a high degree of compatibility with previous Jakarta EE releases.

In addition to these enhancements, there is a growing list of compatible products to support an already rich ecosystem. For example, Eclipse GlassFish 7, Open Liberty,, and Wild Fly 27.0.0 are currently offering compatible versions.
