Google Remote Procedure Call, or gRPC, is an open source Remote Procedure Call (RPC) framework focused on high performance and portable to any environment. It is an alternative to REST, deemed by many as more efficient.
After one of our customers requested it, the extension became available in our April 2022 Payara Community and Enterprise releases: 5.2022.2 and 5.38.0.
The April 2022 Payara Platform release is here! Payara Platform Community 5.2022.2 brings 13 bug fixes, 2 component upgrades, 3 improvements and 3 security fixes, whilst Payara Platform Enterprise 5.38.0 includes 2 bug fixes, 1 improvement and 4 security fixes.
It includes the fix for "Spring4Shell", and improved support for Jakarta EE 9, as you can now run Jakarta EE 9 applications using PrimeFaces.
This release also gives Payara users the ability to use gRPC, the Google Remote Procedure Call Framework.
Please note: This is the penultimate Payara 5 Community release. Payara 6 Community will soon take its place, to be used with Jakarta EE 10. If you want to keep using earlier Java EE/Jakarta EE versions - we encourage you to move to Payara 5 Enterprise.
