Java Platform, Enterprise Edition

Java Enterprise Edition Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition rebranded as Jakarta EE, is a set of specifications, extending Java SE 8 with specifications for enterprise features such as distributed computing and web services. Java EE applications are run on reference runtimes, that can be microservices or application servers, which handle transactions, scalability and management of the components it is deploying. Java EE is defined by its specification; the specification defines their interactions. As with other Java Community Process specifications, providers must meet certain conformance requirements in order to declare their products as Java EE compliant. Examples of contexts in which Java EE referencing runtimes are used are: e-commerce, banking information systems; the platform was known as Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition or J2EE from version 1.2, until the name was changed to Java Platform, Enterprise Edition or Java EE in version 1.5. The current version is called Jakarta EE 8. J2EE 1.2 J2EE 1.3 J2EE 1.4 Java EE 5 Java EE 6 Java EE 7 Java EE 8 Jakarta EE 8 - compatible with Java EE 8Java EE was maintained by Oracle under the Java Community Process.

On September 12, 2017, Oracle Corporation announced that it would submit Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation. The Eclipse top-level project has been named Eclipse Enterprise for Java; the Eclipse Foundation was forced to change the name of Java EE because Oracle owns the trademark for the name "Java." On February 26, 2018, it was announced that the new name of Java EE will be Jakarta EE. Java EE includes several specifications that serve different purposes, like generating web pages and writing from a database in a transactional way, managing distributed queues; the Java EE APIs include several technologies that extend the functionality of the base Java SE APIs, such as Enterprise JavaBeans, servlets, JavaServer Pages and several web service technologies. Servlet: defines how to manage HTTP requests, in a asynchronous way, it is low level and other Java EE specifications rely on it. It is used in Java Server Faces to bind components to beans and in Contexts and Dependency Injection to name beans, but can be used throughout the entire platform.

Java API for RESTful Web Services provides support in creating web services according to the Representational State Transfer architectural pattern. Contexts and Dependency Injection is a specification to provide a dependency injection container, as in Spring; this package contains the Enterprise JavaBeans classes and interfaces that define the contracts between the enterprise bean and its clients and between the enterprise bean and the ejb container. Java Persistence API are specifications about object-relational mapping between relation database tables and Java classes. Java Transaction API contains the interfaces and annotations to interact with the transaction support offered by Java EE. Though this API abstracts from the low-level details, the interfaces are considered somewhat low-level and the average application developer in Java EE is either assumed to be relying on transparent handling of transactions by the higher level EJB abstractions, or using the annotations provided by this API in combination with CDI managed beans.

Java Message Service provides a common way for Java programs to create, send and read an enterprise messaging system's messages. Validation: This package contains the annotations and interfaces for the declarative validation support offered by the Bean Validation API. Bean Validation provides a unified way to provide constraints on beans that can be enforced cross-layer. In Java EE, JPA honors bean validation constraints in the persistence layer, while JSF does so in the view layer. Batch Applications provides the means to run long running background tasks that involve a large volume of data and which may need to be periodically executed. Java EE Connector Architecture is a Java-based tool for connecting application servers and enterprise information systems as part of enterprise application integration; this is a low-level API aimed at vendors that the average application developer does not come in contact with. In an attempt to limit the footprint of web containers, both in physical and in conceptual terms, the web profile was created, a subset of the Java EE specifications.

The Java EE web profile comprises the following: Although by definition all Java EE implementations provide the same b

There Goes Another Love Song

"There Goes Another Love Song" is a song by the American Southern rock band Outlaws. Written by Hughie Thomasson and Monte Yoho, it is the opening track and lead single from the band's 1975 debut album Outlaws, it became a Top 40 hit, peaking at number 34 on the Billboard Hot 100, peaked at #30 in November 1975 in the Netherlands. The song was written by Monte Yoho. Thomasson's voice is the one associated with the group because he sang two of the band's most popular songs, "There Goes Another Love Song" and "Green Grass and High Tides"; the song was well received by music critics. Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr. of Allmusic called it one of The Outlaws' best songs, while the Associated Press called it a "rock anthem". However, not all reviews were positive. Marley Brant was confused as to why the song was released as a single in the first place, as he thought it was "slightly inconsequential". "There Goes Another Love Song" was included on the various artists compilation The South's Greatest Hits. 7" Vinyl"There Goes Another Love Song" – 3:06 "Keep Prayin'" – 2:46 Hughie Thomasson - lead guitar, vocals Billy Jones - lead guitar, vocals Monte Yoho - drums Frank O'Keefe - bass guitar Henry Paul - electric and acoustic guitar, vocals Brant, Marley.

HMS Montreal (1761)

HMS Montreal was a 32-gun Niger-class fifth-rate frigate of the Royal Navy. She was served in the Seven Years' War and the American War of Independence; the French captured her in 1779 and she served with them under the name Montréal. An Anglo-Spanish force destroyed her during the occupation of Toulon early in the French Revolutionary Wars. Montreal was ordered from Sheerness Dockyard on 6 June 1759, one of an eleven ship class built to a design by Thomas Slade, she was laid down on 26 April 1760, launched on 15 September 1761, was completed by 10 October 1761. She had been named Montreal on 28 October 1760, was commissioned under her first commander, Captain William Howe, in September 1761, having cost £11,503.17.11d to build, including money spent fitting her out. Montreal was first assigned to serve in the Mediterranean, which she sailed for in December 1761, she was paid off in July 1764 after the conclusion of the Seven Years' War. She was immediately recommissioned under Captain Keith Stewart, returned to the Mediterranean in July that year.

By 1766 Montreal was under the command of Captain Phillips Cosby, still in the Mediterranean, though she returned home in September 1767, bringing the body of the Duke of York, who had died in Monaco. She was paid off in early 1769 and returned to Portsmouth where she was examined as a model for future ship construction by the Kingdom of Sardinia. Master shipwright David Mearns prepared detailed sketches of the vessel, these became the plans for the Sardinian frigate Carlo, launched in 1770. Montreal was recommissioned into the Royal Navy in December 1769 under Captain James Alms, she returned to the Mediterranean the following year, was under the command of Captain Christopher Atkins from about September 1772. She paid off again in March 1773, was surveyed at Chatham in April. A small to middling repair was carried out between July 1777 and February 1778, she recommissioned in November 1777 under Captain Stair Douglas, she sailed to North America in April 1778, was afterwards sent to the Mediterranean.

While in North America Douglas was court-martialled for firing a gun into a small boat during some horseplay, killing a midshipman. He was acquitted on the grounds. While in the Mediterranean Montreal formed part of Vice-Admiral Sir Robert Duff's squadron. On 4 May 1779 Montreal was sailing off Gibraltar in company with HMS Thetis when they encountered the French ships Bourgogne, under the command of Captain de Marin and Victoire, under command of Captain d'Albert Saint-Hippolyte, both ships of the 76th squadron out of Toulon. Thetis engaged Victoire and was able to escape; the French took her into service as Montréal. British records agree, though they put the encounter on 1 May; when Thetis and Montreal saw two large ships approaching under Dutch colours, they suspected that the strange ships were French and attempted to sail away. Thetis succeeded, but at 9p.m. Bourgogne and Victoire caught up with Montreal, came alongside, ordered Douglas to send over a boat. Captain Douglas sent over Lieutenant John Douglas, whom the French ordered to Douglas to hail Montreal and instruct ehr to strike.

Captain Douglas refused and attempted to sail away, but after the French had fired several broadsides into Montreal he struck. In July 1780, Montréal was escorting six ships destined for Algiers, she was under the command of Captain de Vialis de Fontbelle, in charge of the convoy. At 5:30 in the morning, on 30 July 1780, de Vialis de Fontbelle noticed that four vessels to leeward had taken up pursuit of the convoy while the convoy was somewhere between the Tower of Cachique and Cape Caxine, about 12 miles from the Cape. At 6:00, it was determined that the four pursuing ships were enemy vessels, that a fifth pursuer was coming up. At this time, de Vialis de Fontbelle signalled the convoy to make best speed to the Tower of Cachique, he sought refuge under its guns. The French identified the pursuing British squadron as consisting of two frigates, two brigs, a xebec. By 6:45, the two sides had begun exchanging long-range fire; the British ships were trying to cut inside the convoy, between shore and the convoy, between the convoy and Montréal.

By around 8:00, the two brigs had engaged the convoy. The 20-gun HMS Porcupine, under Captain Sir Charles Knowles, xebec HMS Minorca, under Commander Hugh Lawson, engaged Montréal off the Barbary coast; the convoy anchored beneath the guns of Cachique. During the opening of close combat, de Vialis de Fontbelle had received two mortal wounds, one to the right arm and one to the left calf, he therefore turned over command to his second-in-command, the Count of LaPorte-Yssertieux, before dying. Montréal demasted one of the English vessels. By 9:30, the English commander signaled withdrawal; the two-hour engagement was inconclusive. Minorca suffered two wounded on Porcupine; the convoy suffered four dead, including Captain de Vialis de Fontbelle. Three English ships gave chase when the convoy lifted anchor, however the convoy had lost them by 11:00, reached Algiers intact. For his conduct in the action, la Porte-Yssertieux received a promotion to brevet de capitaine de vaisseau; the French used Montréal as a powder hulk.

The British captured her when they occupied Toulon in August 1793 in support of the monarchists there. The French Revolutionary forces besieged Toulon and on 16 December 1793 the British decided to evacuate the port while destroying as much as possible of the materials that they could not take away. Montréal was one of two powder hulks in the por
