Payara Platform is an open source middleware platform that supports Jakarta EE (formerly Java EE) applications in ANY environment: on premise, in the cloud, or hybrid. 

It is a solution to GlassFish problems such as lack of supported Docker images and automation assistance, no internal monitoring system and an absence of modern security standards and critical server event alerts and notfiers. It is also an alternative to Oracle Weblogic, Wildfly, JBoss EAP, WebSphere, OpenLiberty and more.
