In the "Java EE becomes Jakarta EE" section, it says "I will simply use the abrreviation JEE". FWI, there's no such thing such as JEE (and JSE too)! See https://javaee.github.io/javaee-spec/JEE

It's not a book on Java EE not Jakarta EE but you might want to mention that Java EE was govenred by the JCP rules while Jakarta EE won't be.

You're right, it's not an official abbreviation, but it's very commonly used and has the added bonus that it can mean both Java EE and Jakarta EE (a reason why Jakarta was so appealing as a name). In this book, it doesn't matter whether we're talking about Java EE or Jakarta EE and I don't want to get caught up in those details, so I introduce JEE as an abbreviation for both.

I allude to that ("In the past, Java SE and EE were governed by the same process"), but you're right, I can put that more clearly.

Thanks for your feedback!
