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.

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.

The Top Musical Genres for Programmers and When They are Most Applicable

Being both a programmer and a musician, I find the best way to keep me rolling forward in any situation is to stick the earphones in, smack on a good tune and get lost in the well composed world of (preferably not) spaghetti code and appropriate jams…

 

But what are the appropriate jams?

 

Today, I’ll talk about my favourite genres of music and where I believe them to be applicable in my programming work cycle.

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.

Payara Japan Tour 2019

Recently a few of us from the Payara team went on a grand adventure to tour some of the major cities of Japan. Our mission was to team up with our Japanese partner, Yusuke Yamamoto from Samuraism, and run a series of talks at Java User Groups in: Okayama, Nagoya, Osaka, Sapporo and Tokyo. In Tokyo we visited the GlassFish user group and also sponsored and presented at the bi-annual JJUG event, the largest Java conference in Japan. 

International Trading Compliance

As Payara supplies our support both domestically and internationally, I thought it prudent to attend a recent course hosted by the local Chamber of Commerce regarding International Trade Compliance to understand better the requirements of export …..especially in light of the eventual UK exit from Europe!
