Traditionally, enterprises stored their SQL data in relational database management systems (RDBMS). However, the strict and rigid SQL data format is not always fit for purpose...
This has led to the rise of schemaless databases and NoSQL. The distributed, non-relational model of NoSQL database technology made it the almost perfect choice for companies like Twitter, Google and Facebook that had amassed massive datasets from their web applications.

Jakarta EE has action and component based frameworks for building web applications using the model view controller architecture pattern. The much older Jakarta Faces is a component based framework while the much newer Jakarta MVC is an action based one. This blog starts by defining the two types, then takes a look at Jakarta MVC, what it is and how to get started.
In September 2022, the Jakarta EE community achieved a huge milestone with Jakarta EE 10 being released (read more here). The key goals of the Jakarta EE 10 release are simplicity, modernization and ensuring it is lightweight. It's been a few months since this major release, so we thought it's a good time now to do a bit of a recap. We invite you to join our series of fast-paced, no slides webinars that will bring you up to speed with Jakarta EE 10!

We regularly conduct surveys to learn what technologies are most commonly used with Payara Platform, so we can work on our integrations and plug-ins.
This survey was promoted in October/November 2022 via social media, emails, blogs and our Payara Forum.
