Our goal within the Payara project is to facilitate innovations in Java web and enterprise applications. There are many areas to innovate but one of my favourite is better and simpler support for reactive programming. I've been exploring this area for a while. I have found some clever ways how to use standard APIs and Payara Platform to write reactive applications. This year in one of my session at Oracle Code One and Devoxx Belgium, I will focus on using MicroProfile API to write reactive microservices with simple code.
In the previous blog of this series, we learned about 5 production features of the Payara Server 5. This blog will continue to introduce 5 more production features of Payara Server 5 that you might not know about - but should.
At Java One last year, Oracle announced that they had made the monumental decision to open source Java EE and move it to the Eclipse Foundation. As Oracle Code One (the successor conference to Java One) comes around I thought it would be good to reflect on where we are and how far we still have to go.
Microsoft Azure provides fully managed Cloud SQL databases for use by your Azure hosted cloud services. Payara® Micro is built to be the best runtime for Cloud Native Java EE and MicroProfile applications. Here’s how to rapidly create a REST web service that retrieves data from an Azure SQL Database and returns it as JSON.
It seems like Microservices architecture is almost everywhere these days. For a long time, I used to have a feeling that many people talked about it but very few use it. So I decided to find out how to get the most out of Microservices. I've studied this architecture a lot, experimented with the technology created specifically for Microservices and talked to other people who knew more than me. This how I've met some incredible people. And it's also a reason why I've joined forces with Reza Rahman and Ivar Grimstad to create a Hands-on Lab about our findings, which we'll present at Oracle Code One this year.
Azure Container Instances allow you to rapidly deploy containers to the Microsoft Azure cloud without having to manage virtual machines and the corresponding infrastructure. Container Instances can be used to rapidly deploy Java EE and MicroProfile applications using Payara Micro as the underlying platform for your Cloud Native applications.
The Payara Platform is perfect for deploying Jakarta EE and MicroProfile applications on Microsoft Azure. One rapid option for deploying on Azure is to use Azure Application Services, especially Web App for Containers. The WebApp for Containers service allows you to rapidly deploy production Payara Micro applications onto Azure in seconds, allowing both rapid horizontal and vertical scaling on demand.
