Alongside the Jakarta EE 9.1 release, GlassFish 6.1 has been released as a Compatible Implementation.
However, although GlassFish is still used by many - a legacy of the time it was supported by Oracle - we would argue it is NOT a good choice for running your enterprise applications in production.
If you are considering updating to more recent GlassFish versions, it might be better to consider more reliable, supported, and up-to-date alternatives. In this blog, I explain why GlassFish 6.x is not the best choice for your mission critical deployments.
Payara Services are celebrating the release of Jakarta EE 9.1 Platform and Web Profile specifications and related TCKs.
With Jakarta EE 9.1, global source community Eclipse Foundation brings to Java developers the first incremental Jakarta EE release since the new namespace was introduced last year. Read the Eclipse Foundation announcement here - featuring a quote from our Founder and CEO Steve Millidge.
Payara's team have not only worked hard to ensure Jakarta EE 9.1 applications can be run in Payara Platform 5, but Payara Platform 6 alpha one is very close to being ready as a Compatible Implementation. Watch this space!
The 2021 Payara Platform Survey was completed in April. Our surveys help us shape the future of Payara Server and Payara Micro as they give us an idea what features and enhancements the community would like to see in future releases. Surveys also provide an opportunity for you to tell us what needs to improve and after finding 14% of respondents indicated the speed of deployment is not as fast as they would like, we wanted to share a tip.
この “Uber” Jarは、Dockerコンテナ内でアプリケーションを実行するための最良の方法ではないことに注意してください。アプリケーションに小さなコード変更を加えるたびに、バイナリ全体のアップデートが必要になるためです。より良い方法は、Payara Microインスタンスを起動して、インストールが必要なアプリケーションを指定することです。詳細については Payara Micro Docker Image documentation をご覧ください。
In this series about getting started with Jakarta EE 9, we look at various specifications and how you can use them for your next application. In the previous blogs of this series, we set up our development environment and had a closer look at implementing REST endpoints.
This time, I will explain a few features of Context and Dependency Injection (CDI). The CDI specification is an important backbone of Jakarta EE as it brings several specifications together. Over the years, it became more and more important as an increasing number of specifications started using CDI as the basis for it.
In this blog, I will tell a bit about the different scopes, the interceptor mechanism, and the Event system.
You may have heard the term ‘Internet of Things’ or IoT, referred to with increasing frequency in technology and business circles. It is cited more and more frequently as key in the future of computing, the workplace, consumer technology, travel and more.
But what do we mean when we say Internet of Things – and what implications does it have when it comes to security?
The HTTP Strict-Transport-Security response header (often abbreviated as HSTS) tells the browser that it should access the website only using HTTPS, instead of using HTTP.
The May 2021 releases of the Payara Platform, Community version 5.2021.3 and Enterprise version 5.28.0, allow you to configure the HSTS header.
We kicked off the year with the Payara Roadmap for 2021. In this January webinar, Steve provided: detail on benefits of the Jakarta EE model; how the Payara Platform is evolving and moving toward Payara 6; updates and progress of the Payara Cloud project, our new PaaS product; and latest news regarding the next major OpenJDK release - JDK 17 Long Term Support (LTS) and what that means for Payara Platform.

In this May update, Steve gives a check-in on how we are progressing along our roadmap, with a retrospective on the year so far and details on what the rest of the year is set to look like. He provides a snapshot of where we are in relation to the plans and projects he mapped out at the beginning of the year.

It's been an incredibly exciting month for Team Payara! We were honoured with a Queen's Award for Enterprise. This is the UK's most prestigious business award, often called the 'Knighthood for Businesses' and our award particularly recognises our international sucess.
