We also had a closer look at how widget content is arranged and coloured which also lead us to add further configuration options.

Payara Cloud: Click Deploy and Watch Your Apps Run on the Cloud

Running your applications on the cloud takes quite a bit of effort. Even “cloud-native” applications present challenges when packaging them to run on the cloud! 

What if you could focus on writing code for your business applications and not worry about making it work on Kubernetes or configuring everything to run them on the cloud? What if configuration and deployment were as simple as selecting your War file and clicking deploy? Imagine how much faster you could write code and deliver applications! 

That’s what Payara Cloud will do for you. Payara Cloud is what cloud-native should be.
