Spring boot, Spring parent poms Spring initializr are really quick ways to start off any project without any hiccups.

Are we having such similar features in Jakarta ee??
Which features in Jakarta ee can narrow the gap with respect to Spring??
How can it simplify things better than what Spring does??

Modern Java EE is heading to the cloud. Servlets still remain relevant but JSPs not so much. Instead there are modern web-framework apps in pure HTML5/CSS/JS served to the client as static content.

The question is unclear. Jakarta was a sub-project of the Apache project, but a lot of jarkarta stuff has been relocated. For example, the former jakarta-tomcat is now apache-tomcat.

Jakarta itself is not part of JEE, but rather included implementations of J2EE functions.

J2EE (hence JEE) is the Sun/Oracle standard spec for Enterprise functions in Java, including web applications and their containers, native java messaging, standardized data persistence and a lot more, Spring uses that as a basis for their own projects. Spring's functions are not replacements for JEE, but rather assistance for JEE.

As for Spring POMs, that's actually Maven at work and Maven's archetype facility has been generating both Spring and non-Spring J2EE and JEE projects for years.
