When a user needs to access multiple applications in your environment, you should not require authentication for each application. If the user has already been authenticated for one of the applications, he or she should should not be asked for credentials when he accesses one of the other applications during the same browser session. This concept is called Single Sign-on where the authentication credentials are 'shared' in the environment and can be used by any application in that environment.
The Notifier API previously found in the Payara Community Edition has now been added to the April Payara Enterprise 5.27.0 release, including backwards compatibility and the ability to create your own notifiers.
In this second blog of the "Getting Started with Jakarta EE 9" series, we show you some basic scenarios using the REST specification. Although most people are using the term REST or RESTful API just to indicate they do data transfer over HTTP, and ignore the "Hypermedia as the engine of application State (HATEOS)" part of REST. The technology is used a lot lately to connect the front-end with the back-end.
For those who are not familiar with Jakarta EE, this blog should give you an indication how to create such a REST API with Jakarta EE 9.
In January 2021 we introduced the Upgrade Tool as a minimally viable product (MVP) for Payara Server Enterprise users to make the process of upgrading from one version of Payara Server Enterprise to the next faster and easier. Each release since then has offered improvements to the tool.
This month we release Payara Platform Enterprise 5.27.0 (request here) with 18 improvements and 3 new features, including an update to the previously released Upgrade Tool, an automated JBatch Job execution data cleanup feature, and the addition of a pluggable Notifier API with the ability to create your own notifiers.
Meanwhile, the Payara Platform Community 5.2021.2 (download here) includes improvements for running Jakarta EE 9 applications.
Don't miss our release overview virtual event on the 20th of April, which is now open for registrations on Meetup here.
