To learn how to develop cloud-native Java applications and microservices on Open Liberty with MicroProfile 5.0 and Jakarta EE 9.1, you can try out our updated guides. You can run our guides in a hosted environment with enhanced interfaces, without having to worry about local setup and prerequisites. We recently updated 31 of our guides for compatibility with MicroProfile 5 and Jakarta EE 9. The Maven project
pom.xml and Liberty configuration
server.xml files in these guides are updated to use new Jakarta EE 9.1 and MicroProfile 5.0 APIs and features. Also, all Java classes now use the
jakarta package namespace instead of
javax, as shown in the following example.
