Payara Server comes with the Domain Data Grid, a very powerful feature related to the clustering capabilities of the product. If you're deploying the application on the domain server itself and are not using any clustering options, it's possible to disable the Domain Data Grid to slightly reduce Payara Server's start up time - but should you?
The Domain Data Grid can be disabled but be aware that a few other features in Payara Server also depend on the Domain Data Grid.
Our'Dismiss the Myths: Get to Know Jakarta EE (Java EE)' webinar series continued with 5/6 - the penultimate video - 'Do JavaEE Standards Matter?'.
Earlier this week, we were offically presented our2021 Queen's Award for Enterprise- International Trade - trophy, in a ceremony held at Malvern Hills Science Park. TheQueen's Awardis signed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 2nd and Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Payara Cloud (launching soon!) is the next generation of cloud-native application runtime, offering an easier way to run your Jakarta EE applications on the cloud. It will take any web application that follows the Jakarta Web profile specification and run it in a containerized Payara Micro instance - and all you need to do is upload your WAR file and click deploy.
While support for MicroProfile 4.0 has been available in Payara Community since 5.2021.1 we’ve waited to add it to Payara Enterprise because it created breaking changes.
The August 2021 Payara Platform release is here! Payara Platform Enterprise 5.30.0 includes 8 bug fixes, 2 component upgrades, 2 security fixes and 4 new features. The Payara Platform Community 5.2021.6 release offers 7 bug fixes, 1 component upgrade, 2 security fixes, and 3 new features.
And don't forget to join the 'August Release Overview + OAuth2 & OpenIdConnect Authentication & Authorization' webinar with Rudy De Busscher on Tuesday, the 24th of August at 3PM BST - find out more & register here.

4/6 in our'Dismiss the Myths: Get to Know Jakarta EE (Java EE)' webinar series was 'Can Java EE Do Microservices?'
The answer is yes! Steve Millidge told you why. You can now watch the entire video if you missed it when it when first broadcast.
Payara Cloud is an all-in-one serverless platform and PaaS solution for Jakarta EE (Java EE) and MicroProfile applications that simplifies cloud infrastructure management. With Payara Cloud, you don’t need to worry about application servers or deal with Kubernetes. Standard and Premium Payara Cloud subscribers can set custom domains for their applications.
Within Payara Server, the JMX system is used to store all the data that the monitoring service captures of the modules within the runtime.
You can use any tool that can connect to the JMX system to collect these data and monitor the environment. Besides this direct access, the notifier service can send this information to various channels so that the data can be integrated with external systems.
The Notifier service is modular since October 2020 with version 5.2020.5 so that you can include only those notifiers that you are interested in and use within your environment. These notifiers cover a wide range of channels, from typical destinations like email, JMS Queues, over APM tools like DataDog and NewRelic to communication platforms like Teams, Slack, and Discord.
In this blog, we take a look at enabling JMX Monitoring for the JVM Heap Size, monitoring the process Heap Size, and then sending that information to a Discord channel.
Our'Dismiss the Myths: Get to Know Jakarta EE (Java EE)' webinar series continued with 'Is Java EE Cloud Native?'
Steve Millidge, CEO & Founder of Payara Services, showed the audience that Java EE IS cloud-native and can handle microservices and containers in the cloud.
Waters is the editor in chief of theConverge360 news and information sites Application Development Trends(ADT Mag), Pure AI, and Futuretech360 - with his career also including writing books, including "The Everything Guide to Social Media," one of the first deep dives into this world-changing phenomenon, and "Blobitecture," an exploration of an architectural and industrial design trend enabled by computer software. He also co-scripted the documentary film "Silicon Valley: A 100 Year Renaissance," which aired on PBS.
Steve had a conversation over Zoom with John. Steve - in Malvern, England, after work - spoke to John - in his Silicon Valley office just before 9am. Their discussion was wide-ranging and insightful, covering everything from the future of Jakarta EE and how it will fare under Eclipse Foundation stewardship, to the specifics of Payara's journey and how we got our marine logo! It's a must listen for those interested in open source and Enterprise Java.
We are all familiar with Microsoft Azure, Google's GCP, or Amazon's AWS platform for running applications in a public cloud. But there are also other, lesser-known platforms like Alibaba Cloud. And while many don't know this platform, it is by far the largest one in the Asia Pacific region and even the third largest cloud provider worldwide. Alibaba Cloud has some interesting features.
In this blog, we explore some aspects of the platform and how it can be used with the Payara Platform.
