The Javalambre Physics of the Accelerating universe Astrophysical Survey (J-PAS) is about to start scanning thousands of square degrees of the northern sky with the JPCam camera, currently in the commissioning phase at the 2.5m Javalambre Survey Telescope. J-PAS will feature 56 narrow-band filters, effectively offering a low-resolution spectrum for every object detected. Before JPCam started operations, we used an interim camera to observe with all the J-PAS filters one sq. deg on the AEGIS field, along the Extended Groth Strip. The data of this smaller project, referred to as miniJPAS, were released to the public at the end of last year and were used to test the potential of J-PAS across a wide range of scientific cases, from the study of nearby galaxies to quasars, from clusters to multiple tracers for the study of the large scale structure. In this colloquium, I will present the main results of miniJPAS, the first light of JPCam, and will give prospects for the upcoming J-PAS.
