Ivar Grimstad

var Grimstad is a Java Champion, Oracle Developer Champion and JUG Leader working as Principal Consultant for Cybercom Group in Sweden.

He is the PMC Lead for Eclipse Enterprise for Java (EE4J) and involved in the forming of Jakarta EE. He is also in the Java Community Process as a member of the Executive Committee, Spec Lead for JSR 371 (MVC 1.0) and has served as Expert Group Member for a number of JSRs, such as JSR 375 (Java EE Security API).

Ivar is also involved in Eclipse MicroProfile as well as being an Apache NetBeans Committer and a frequent speaker at International developer conferences.

When the Eclipse Microprofile initiative was started in 2016, it only took about three months before version 1.0 was launched. From day one, there were four different implementations from four different vendors available.

In this fast-paced, demo-heavy session, Eclipse MicroProfile will be introduced and demonstrated using the available implementations in live coding demos. All implementations will be explored and compared in a vendor neutral way.

We will also take a look at the potential candidates for future versions, Java EE 8 support and the relationship to EE4J and Jakarta EE.
