This is out of the scope of this MOOC.

I have Java SDK's installed for version 8 and 9.

I need some pointers about how to do the following:

  1. Implement Java Enterprise Edition software to extend the functionality of the Java 8 SDK for CORBA, Servlets etc....
  2. The Java 8 EE would be compatible with Java 8SDK or is it possible that this could work with Java 9.

    I've heard back from one of the development managers.  He suggests the Java EE Tutorial. (Java SE 8 | Earlier Java EE Versions).  Looks like there are setup instructions there as part of Step 3 of the "Your First Cup"  Tutorial.  He also suggested the OpenJDK and Java EE mailing lists as resources to hear about the latest and greatest.  Here's the full body of the reply:

    EE 8 SDK, and GlassFish do not support Java SE 9 yet. The timeline for adding Java SE 9 is a bit confused because of the changes in release timing and support longevity that have been introduced by the OpenJDK's revised evolution changes and when the various LTS releases are due to come out. I cannot give you a target date for EE 8 with SE 9 support, at this time.
    So long as the developer is using the APIs as described, using CORBA and Servlet should be okay with Java SE 8 and Java EE 8. If they want to get under the hood and actually modify CORBA or Servlet (or anything else) support, that's a different story and generally isn't "supported." They are welcome to investigate options via the open-source community (OpenJDK mailing lists, or Java EE Mailing Lists).
    I'm guessing they have already looked at the Java EE tutorial? If not, I'd suggest they go there next.

    Let me ask around for a Java EE expert.  Last I knew, Java SE 9 is deprecating for removal CORBA and other EE APIs within Java SE because they are out of sink with the latest Java EE version, difficult to maintain, and have possible security concerns.

    Hi Nick, Corba was just an example.  Many years ago the installation of EE was almost like the install of the SDK.  But now it is simply a zip file.   What other config is required to get it to work?

    Thanks, Nick, It is a Java 8SDK and Java 8 EE config that I am after.  There is quite a lag between releasing the JDK and the EE.  This has been the case for quite some time.  But they may have a lot of regression testing to perform so that a stable and functional product  version is released to public use.

    Oops!  I've repaired the link above.  It should lead to https://javaee.github.io/firstcup/toc.html
