10 Strategies for Developing Reliable Jakarta EE Applications for the Cloud

What happens when an application designed for a small user base needs to be scaled up and moved to the cloud?

It needs to live in a distributed environment: responding to an appropriate number of concurrent user requests per second and ensuring users find the application reliable. 

Though Jakarta EE and Eclipse MicroProfile can help with reliable clustering, there is no standard API in Jakarta EE that defines how clustering should work currently. This might change in the future, but in the meantime, this gap must be filled by DevOps engineers.

In this blog, we will cover 10 technical strategies to deal with clustering challenges when developing Jakarta EE and MicroProfile for cloud environments.

Fine Tuning Payara Server 5 in Production

One of the biggest challenges when developing applications for the web is to understand how they need to be fine-tuned when releasing them into a production environment. This is no exception for Java Enterprise applications deployed on a Payara Server installation. 

 

Running a Payara Server setup is simple: download the current distribution suited for your needs (full, web); head to the /bin folder and start the default domain (domain1)! However, keep in mind that this default domain is tailored for development purposes (a trait inherited from GlassFish Server Open Source). When developing a web application, it’s better to quickly code features, deploy them quickly, test it, un-deploy (or redeploy) it and continue with the next set of features until a stable state is reached.
