EE 8 TCK.  With my Apache hat on, I worked with Cameron Purdy, then SVP of Development at
Oracle, for over 2 years trying to get a new agreement made.  When he departed Oracle, the
progress stopped on the Oracle side.

licensed and paid for a TCK.  We can't legally give it to Apache (Oracle's rules) nor can
we legally release Apache TomEE (Apache's rules), but we can legally certify something that
is 100% Apache TomEE, but with a different name.  I.e. we can take TomEE zip, rename it, run
it through the TCK and put it up.  We intend to do that so that Apache TomEE releases are
in spirit, certified.

the results.  Java EE itself is being open sourced, TCKs and all, so this will have a better
solution long-term.  Short-term we'll have to power through together as a community and support
each other the best we can.
Oracle destroy everything, it's their business model. Open source Java
it's nice, but it is too late for the platform IMHO.
