When creating a Java EE application it is important to deploy and test it on a server that is as close to the target production environment as possible. If you use Maven in your project, it is possible to do so using the Cargo plugin, which allows you to deploy an application to an instance of Payara Server either locally or remotely. A complete example is available at https://github.com/payara/Payara-Examples/blob/master/ecosystem/payara-maven/pom.xml.
Avanzando más nuestra serie de blogs de introducción, esta entrada mostrará como puedes escalar de forma dinámica tu cluster, y como Payara Server maneja la conmutación por fallas entre miembros del cluster.
La conmutación por fallas es la habilidad de continuar proporcionando acceso a nuestro sitio web o aplicación en el caso de que un servidor falle. Es una parte importante de un servicio que goza de alta disponibilidad, cuyo objetivo es minimizar los tiempos de inactividad a lo largo de tu infraestructura de servicios.
One of the concerns businesses commonly have when considering open source software is whether or not support will be available for questions and problems. iTAC Software AG provides internet-enabled information and communication technologies for the manufacturing industry and had been using Oracle GlassFish 2.1 in 2008 for their customers. Over time, they had some issues with customers requesting fixes and security updates for the application server. Unfortunately, the GlassFish Open Source Edition didn’t provide the fixes, so iTAC decided to look for another open source application server option that would include security fixes and support.
Back in 2016, we wrote about the importance of automation in taking applications from development to production with Payara Server. Since then, there have been a lot of changes both in Payara Server and Payara Micro and the wider tech landscape.
The Payara Platform stability stream releases are available only to our support customers to provide consistency, security, and stability for your production environment. The stability stream releases provide bug and security fixes to the current feature set of 5.181 and 4.181 for 12 months, with no component upgrades or new features that could potentially cause problems. If you’re in need of a secure, stable production environment, consider investing in Payara Support to receive the benefits of our stability stream releases.
There are many reasons why companies choose to invest in commercial support for Payara® Server or Payara Micro (the Payara Platform). Here we've listed the most common reasons for buying support to achieve operational and financial benefits:
In a previous blog of this series we set up Apache httpd to forward traffic to Payara Server. However, this only covers forwarding HTTP and not HTTPS. This blog will demonstrate how to secure Payara Server with Apache over HTTPS on Ubuntu.
