Payara Platform 5 Supports HTTP/2 on All JDK Versions

Payara Platform 5 brought with it an implementation of Servlet 4.0, which itself contains support for the HTTP/2 standard.

Coming soon in Payara Platform Community 5.2020.3 Release: OpenAPI Refactor

 

The Payara Platform 5.2020.3 release (coming soon!) introduces major refactoring and architectural changes to the underlying implementation of MicroProfile OpenAPI 1.1.2.

The goal of the OpenAPI specification is to provide a standard format for documenting REST API services which is extremely useful, as it follows a standard and it can be used in a range of tools such as those provided by the Swagger suite. These let you do all sorts of things such as design, edit, and test a REST API documented by an OpenAPI document.

Securing Your Applications Running on Payara Platform (JAX-RS Endpoints)

Securing your application is a very important aspect of the development of your application. You not only need to make sure that the application has the intended functionality but also that this functionality can only be executed by the appropriate people. You not only need to make sure that updates to data are restricted to the correct people, but it is also important that end users only see data they are allowed to see. And in case of sensitive data, this is even more important.
