Jakarta Project

The goal of the Jakarta Project is to provide commercial-quality server solutions based on the Java Platform that are developed in an open and cooperative fashion.

Jakarta is the "overall" project for many subprojects. For example, Tomcat is the Servlet+JSP Engine which is a subproject of the Jakarta Project. Many people confuse Jakarta and Tomcat together even though the reality is that Jakarta is essentially just this website and Tomcat is a product on this website. You can get information about each of the projects by looking at the left side navigation under the "SubProjects" headings.

If you need support for any of the projects or you are trying to get more information on any of the projects, we suggest that you join one of the User mailing lists.

For information on how to contribute to the projects, please see the Guidelines section of our website. This section contains details on how we accept patch submissions, voting procedures, communication and many other important aspects of how we manage this project.

The older Java Apache Project has all of its active projects merged into the Jakarta website now. Some of the older retired projects (like JServ) are still linked off the Java Apache website.
