This Thursday (two days from now), I'll be presenting for OpenNTF's webinar series on the topic of the XPages Jakarta EE Support project. From our summary:
The XPages Jakarta EE Support project on OpenNTF adds an array of modern capabilities to NSF-based Java development. These improvements can be used for wholly-new applications or added incrementally to existing ones.
In this webinar Jesse Gallagher will demonstrate how to use this project to perform common tasks in better ways, such as creating and consuming REST services, writing managed beans with CDI, and using new EL features in XPages. Though these examples will largely use Java, they do not require any knowledge of OSGi or extension library development, nor any tools other than Designer.
This webinar will take place on August 18, 2022 at 11:00AM (New York Time) to 12:30PM.

My intent for this is to show the most-common components used with some examples of how I'm using them in practice. I hope it will also be an opportunity for anyone who (reasonably) balks at the opaque monolith to ask questions and get a better idea for whether it'd be helpful for them.
