Tooling Enhancements in Payara Enterprise 5.22.0

With the release of Payara Platform Enterprise 5.22.0, we're happy to announce that the Payara Platform officially provides the tooling support for the Intellij IDEA, Apache NetBeans IDE, Eclipse IDE and Visual Studio Code.

Payara Tools for IntelliJ IDEA:

Payara IntelliJ IDEA tool's initial release is out and available on the JetBrains Marketplace and Payara Enterprise repository. Payara IntelliJ IDEA tools provide integration of the Payara Platform Enterprise & Community Editions into the IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

Notifier API Updated for Payara Server Community Edition

Previously, Payara Server did not offer a convenient way to add extensions. If you wanted to add an extension, you had to download the Payara Server code base, build the entire repository, write your own extension and module, and basically act as a developer. We’re working to create a simplified way to add extensions to Payara Server, starting with the Notifier API. 

Eclipse Transformer Configuration Option with Jakarta EE 9 Milestone Release

The Eclipse Transformer tooling helps you transform existing Jakarta EE 8 binary to Jakarta EE 9. This is another step toward the full release of Jakarta EE 9. Payara Server Community Edition now includes a TECH PREVIEW of Jakarta EE 9 support to allow users to try out the new Jakarta EE 9 namespace and start experimenting and migrating applications in these early stages.

The Jakarta EE 9 3rd release candidate is available on Maven Central with the namespace changes in all of the Jakarta EE APIs and compatible implementations passing the standalone TCKs. Jakarta EE 9 will not be full of exciting new features, but this is an important milestone to drive forward and innovate the Jakarta EE 10 Platform in the cloud space.

Benefits of Migrating from Oracle WebLogic 14 to Payara Server Enterprise

Payara Server Enterprise 5 is a cloud-native middleware application platform supporting mission critical production systems with reliable and secure deployments of Jakarta EE (Java EE) applications on premise, in the cloud, or hybrid environments. If you’ve been running WebLogic in production but are struggling with an infrequent release schedule, bug fixes, and patches - or if you want support for Eclipse MicroProfile, you’ll benefit from migrating from WebLogic to Payara Server Enterprise.
