Conclusion: Looks like we will not need to release a new version of Jakarta Enterprise Beans. We will try to cover everything in the Platform specification.

Will be an agenda item on tomorrow’s Spec Committee call w/ Wayne
Guesstimates on Dates for Jakarta EE 9.1 release date
Should run current Jakarta EE 9.1 TCK against Glassfish with Java SE 11 just to get a reading on the overall impact (TCK, Glassfish, both) – Action for Scott M and Glassfish team.
Other app servers could also feed in their experiences (Open Liberty, Wildfly, TomEE, etc)
TCK action for 9.1
David: Remove PortableRemoteObject.narrow calls in TCK tests.
Make Corba ORB references optional.
Scott: Duplicate tests + remove ORB from one copy of the tests.
Platform TCK/GlassFish teams to discuss where SE 8 TCK testing happens for 9.1
Current plan is for GlassFish Jenkins to do SE 11 TCK testing.
Schema discussion (added at end of call, more followup needed…)
https://jakarta.ee/specifications/platform/9/jakarta-platform-spec-9.html#schemas talks about requiring Jakarta EE 8 schemas in EE 9.
