That's great. I also plan to get back into Java one day soon. I would like to look into what kind of messaging brokers are available in the Java world. At a quick glance, it looks like many opensource brokers will support a variety of languages.

On a side note, I will say this. I do miss the strongly typed characteristic of Java and C# since I moved to JavaSCript. I think I'll have to start diving headfirst into the world of TypeScript.

TypeScript isn't a solution for everything but I'd recommend using it for JS.

Yup, I started with plain JS because it is really easy and fast to get proof of concepts and full projects off the ground. Moving to TypeScript would be beneficial for me and my team in order to keep the project consistent between multiple developers and over time of development.
