Java EE Security API is one of the new APIs in Java EE 8. With Java EE currently being transferred and rebranded to Jakarta EE, this API will soon be rebranded to Jakarta Security, which is the term we'll use in this article. Jakarta Security is part of the Jakarta APIs, included and active in the Payara Platform by default with no configuration required in order to use it. With some effort, Jakarta Security can be used with Tomcat, as well.
Payara Tools 1.0 Eclipse Plugin just got a small, but important update for JDK 11 users.
The term “Kubernetes” comes from the Greek “kubernan,” which means to steer or guide. You can think of Kubernetes like a pilot for apps that are stored and run together in containers and other forms of workload distribution software. The Greek “kubernan” was transformed over the years to relate to the term “Govern”, which is another helpful comparison when trying to understand the full capacity of Kubernetes.
Another very busy month for the Payara team! We had our annual "Payara Week" where we fly everyone in the company to our UK HQ for a week of close collaboration, celebration, review and fun! We also announced our new partner program "Payara Radiate".
This week we were happy to host William and Imogen who joined us in the Malvern Office for a work experience placement. As an organisation we have been dedicated to involving ourselves and providing educational opportunities for young students. Including our apprenticeship program, work experience placements, speaking at schools and events. Below is a summary from William and Imogen on how they felt about the experience.
