Payara Blue gives the IBM JDK users full support for running Java EE 7 applications on Payara on any platform supported by the IBM JDK 7 or JDK 8.

Getting Payara Blue

To get hold of Payara Blue just go to our downloads page and choose either the Full Java EE profile, Web profile or Payara Micro.

Running Payara Blue

Running Payara Blue is just like running any GlassFish or Payara server. First ensure your JAVA_HOME is setup for the IBM JDK. Unzip the Payara Blue download and startup the domain using asadmin. Example commands on my machine are below:

export JAVA_HOME=/opt/ibm/java-x86_64-80/
cd /opt
cp ~/Downloads/ .
cd payara41/bin
./asadmin start-domain


Once the server is running navigate to to access the administration console. 


Payara Console

That's it you are up and running with Payara on the IBM JDK. As this is a first release we are looking for people to try out on AIX and Z/OS and give us feedback.
