Continuing from where thelast blog post left off, let's delve deeper into the intricacies of configuring the chunk in Jakarta Batch. As we've seen, a chunk represents a set of items to be processed as a batch. Now we will explore how to control this process, manage potential errors, and ensure efficient execution.
In this exciting round table panel discussion led by our very own Payara Engineers, we delve deep into the future of the upcoming Jakarta EE 11 in the context of its base Java version - Java 21.
The release of Java 21, the latest LTS Java version, marks an important milestone for the Java Platform. With much anticipated features like virtual threads, sequenced collections and record patterns, Java 21 is the perfect base for the upcoming Jakarta EE 11.
In this expert round table discussion, you will learn what the release of Java 21 means to you as a Jakarta EE developer.
In a world where technology never sleeps, staying ahead is not just an advantage; it's a necessity. This is especially true for organisations running enterprise-level applications on Java EE 8 through Payara Enterprise 5. While this platform has undoubtedly served you well, the release of Jakarta EE 10 and Payara Enterprise 6 marks the beginning of a new era in Enterprise Java development.
In the dynamic world of software development, efficiency and speed are key. This is where Payara Starter, our new code scaffolding tool, comes in. Designed to streamline and simplify the initial setup process, Payara Starter helps developers like you kickstart your Jakarta EE projects with ease, whether you prefer Maven or Gradle build systems.
Splashing onto the scene with a tidal wave of updates, the November 2023 release of Payara Platform is here. This release brings enhancements, security fixes, and bug fixes, ensuring a more robust and efficient environment for your mission critical workload. Payara Enterprise 6.8.0 comes with 4 improvements, 3 bug fixes, 1 security fix and 1 component upgrade. Payara Community 6.2023.11 also comes with 4 improvements, 3 bug fixes, 1 security fix and 1 component upgrade.

In today's fast-paced development environment, having an automated deployment pipeline is a necessity to ensure quick, consistent and reliable delivery of applications from development to production. This webinar - REGISTER HERE- aims to guide you through the process of setting up a seamless deployment pipeline for your Jakarta EE applications, leveraging the robustness of GitHub Actions and the simplicity of Payara Cloud CLI.
Join us on Wednesday the 15th of November to explore how you can automate your deployment workflow right from your IDE, through GitHub, and onto Payara Cloud. We will walk you through the essential steps and best practices to set up a GitHub pipeline, which will automatically deploy your Jakarta EE applications to Payara Cloud, ensuring a streamlined delivery process and reducing manual deployment hassles.
Garbage collection is a cornerstone feature in the Java Language. It automates memory management by reclaiming memory occupied by objects that are no longer in use, freeing you the developer up from manual memory allocation and deallocation tasks. This feature is vital for preventing memory leaks and ensuring that applications run efficiently over time.
Deploying Jakarta EE applications to the cloud can be a complex task if you are using traditional deployment options like containers, Kubernetes or other such options, but not with Payara Cloud. Uploading a Jakarta EE binary artefact (.war file) and deploying it to the cloud can be achieved in four straightforward steps. They are:
Java's journey towards fostering more expressive and efficient code has taken a remarkable leap with the advent of Record Patterns, encapsulated in JEP 440. This feature, previewed in both Java 19 and Java 20, is now a part of the language from Java 21, marking a significant stride towards reducing the verbosity traditionally associated with Java language. In this post, we will delve into the essence of Record Patterns, take a look at its benefits, and explore how it fits in with the existing pattern matching capabilities of Java.
