Configuration is an important aspect of programming. However, a standard approach to it has been missing in Java for a long time. A year ago, the MicroProfile project decided to change that. I'm glad I could be part of it and help design the new API. One year later, a common configuration API aiming to set a standard is a reality, with several released versions and multiple projects that provide it. Payara Server and Payara Micro have supported MicroProfile Config API since version 188.8.131.52. We added support for Config 1.1 in version 184.108.40.206 and completed the support for all Eclipse MicroProfile 1.2 features in version 220.127.116.11. So let's summarize what's new since Config 1.0.
There have been a lot of really great updates coming out of the EE4J project recently and as far as I can see, the project is progressing nicely given the size and complexity of the undertaking.
Previously in GlassFish and Payara Server, if you wanted to monitor the status of your application's MBeans, you would have to rely mostly on external programs to capture the data. In Payara Server 174, we integrated the JMX Monitoring service with our existing notification service, meaning that you can now remotely receive monitoring data via any of our notifiers, from email to Slack.
Thanks to Sun Microsystems, Java has an open source history dating back over ten years.
In 2006, the OpenJDK project was announced. It took a while to remove some lingering proprietary components but, with build 53 of OpenJDK 7, we finally had a fully open source version of the JDK. This also became the source code for the reference implementation of the Java SE standard as of Java SE 7.
Payara Server および Payara Microは遂に 18.104.22.168 になりました。いくつかの大きな機能の紹介と、何点か重要なお知らせをします。
Our Payara Engineers have been working very hard on lots of new features ready for our final 5.181 release! One of the key features we intend to deliver is compatibility with MicroProfile 1.2, which will include (among other things) a Fault Tolerance API.
