It's time for the July Payara Monthly Catch.
This month's pick includes:
- Advice on contributing to open source
- Our guide to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning on Jakarta EE
- More deep dives into what you can look forward to in Java 21
- Tips to combat bugs and vulnerabilities
We collate articles and videos from outside Payara - ourJakarta EEandMicroProfilecommunity - as well as sharing Payara's own guides and blogs, and news from our team of "Payarans" (we start them small 😉 )🐣⬇
Apache NetBeans is a popular IDE for Java development, offering a wide range of features for streamlining the development process. Payara Server, a robust and scalable option for deploying Jakarta EE applications, seamlessly integrates with Apache NetBeans. In this blog, we explore the seamless usage of Payara Platform 6 within Apache NetBeans, highlighting the benefits and demonstrating how it enhances your development workflow. Whether you're starting a new project or working with an existing app, this guide helps you leverage the power of Payara Server in your development process. Follow the steps in this blog to set up Apache NetBeans to use Payara Server for running your web apps.
Implementing the correct security patterns is a common challenge that most application developers and consultants can get wrong in even the most common of scenarios. Reinventing the wheel is a common pattern that DevOps engineers do when integrating security solutions inside their applications (authentication, password validation, identity management, correct storage of user data, etc.). Keycloak is an open-source identity management solution that focuses on offloading this burden from DevOps engineers, allowing them to focus on the business aspects of their applications and simplifying their solutions in the long run.
This talk (see below!) from Fabio Turizo, Senior Engineer at Payara, will focus on the benefits of using such a service with an enterprise application, with a live demonstration of a small application that uses the Eclipse MicroProfile APIs to correctly integrate it with Keycloak by way of the OpenIDConnect standards.
