Payara at the JakartaOne Livestream

The JakartaOne Livestream is a huge event in the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile calendar. Organised by the Eclipse Foundation, it is a one-day virtual conference for developers and technical business leaders.

It brings insight into the current state and future of Jakarta EE and related technologies focused on developing cloud-native Java applications. 

Comprehensive Getting Started Guide – Payara Server

Payara Platform is an open source middleware platform that supports Jakarta EE (formerly Java EE) applications in ANY environment: on premise, in the cloud, or hybrid. 

It is a solution to GlassFish problems such as lack of supported Docker images and automation assistance, no internal monitoring system and an absence of modern security standards and critical server event alerts and notfiers. It is also an alternative to Oracle Weblogic, Wildfly, JBoss EAP, WebSphere, OpenLiberty and more. 

Our previous Getting Started guide had not been updated with improvements to Payara Platform, such as our hide password with password aliases feature - and did not contain comprehensive guides to integration with other technologies.

Hype-Driven Development: Don't Be a Victim!

We are launching a new video series: Quick Fire Java with Payara! The first episode sees Payara Product Manager, Rudy De Busscher, discuss "Hype-Driven Development"; software investments based on "buzz" around a trend or product, rather than whether it actually works for your specific use case.
