Oracle Seeking Community Feedback on Java 8 EE Plans 109

An anonymous reader writes with this quick bite from Info Q: "Oracle is seeking feedback from the Java community about what it should work on for the next version of Java EE, the popular and widely used enterprise framework. As well as standardizing APIs for PaaS and SaaS the vendor is looking at removing some legacy baggage including EJB 2.x remote and local client view (EJBObject, EJBLocalObject, EJBHome, and EJBLocalHome interfaces) and CORBA."

    Nothing says "professional tool for serious tasks" like crappy adware shoved in.

    Ive found several benefits to removing Java 8 entirely.
    1. budget performance: by reducing expenditures on support contracts and Oracle licensing fees my budget has stopped looking like a Syrian casualty report.
    2. maintenance productivity: developers have stopped hurling themselves nude through my expensive plate glass windows as they wail 'exception access violation!' This frees up maintenance to address more urgent concerns.
    3. Environmental impact: We've reduced out environmental footprint by shredding our tear-stained contracts, and mulching them with our ancient blood-soaked documentation to create a spreadable compost that just brings out the absolute best in the landscaping.
    4. Wellness impact: Thanks to removing Java our datacenter now runs closer to the temperatures the CRACS were designed to endure. While common HR functions like the weekly jboss report run luau-themed weenie roast have unfortunately been ended, the number of sysops that survive provisioning has improved. Analysts are also no longer permitted to refer to the datacenter provisioning process as 'the trip to mordor'

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
