Java Enterprise Edition is Dead

I am reading an opinion piece on Java EE. It states that that there were two winners for application servers. There was WebLogic which was best. And there was JBoss that was free. However web services and REST seemed to take away their steam.

Do you actually need an app server? Maybe you can just get by with plain old JDBC. Here is the killer stat which might prove Java EE is a dead end. Nobody implements Java EE 6. There is only open source GlassFish. Ouch.

Java is not dead. But Java Enterprise Edition may very well be. I am glad I did not spend too much time with Java EE.
