Swisscom Relied on Payara Support Services to Migrate from GlassFish to Payara Server

When a leading telecoms company in Switzerland, Swisscom, transitioned to Payara Server from GlassFish for their mission critical applications, they found the migration easy and without problems. In fact, having Payara Enterprise Support meant Swisscom had access to a customer-only build which shortened the time to getting a fix to test by two months and 24x7 access to Payara engineers.

Fine Tuning Payara Server 5 in Production

One of the biggest challenges when developing applications for the web is to understand how they need to be fine-tuned when releasing them into a production environment. This is no exception for Java Enterprise applications deployed on a Payara Server installation. 

 

Running a Payara Server setup is simple: download the current distribution suited for your needs (full, web); head to the /bin folder and start the default domain (domain1)! However, keep in mind that this default domain is tailored for development purposes (a trait inherited from GlassFish Server Open Source). When developing a web application, it’s better to quickly code features, deploy them quickly, test it, un-deploy (or redeploy) it and continue with the next set of features until a stable state is reached. 

Scaling Payara Micro Applications with Kubernetes

When using Docker images as the way to deploy your application, many organizations use Kubernetes to manage the containerized version of their application. This blog gives you a short overview of Kubernetes and how to run your Payara Micro application in a scaled fashion by either defining the scaling manually, or automatically by the Horizontal Pod scaler.

Jakarta EE 8 and Beyond

Today the Eclipse Foundation have announced an Update on Jakarta EE Rights to Java Trademarks which has dramatic implications for the future of Java EE and Jakarta EE. The Payara team have only recently learned about this - so we thought we would blog about how we feel this impacts customers and users of the Payara Platform. We'll also give our thoughts on how Jakarta EE should evolve given the constraints outlined in Mike Milinkovich's blog from the Eclipse Foundation.
