While support for MicroProfile 4.0 has been available in Payara Community since 5.2021.1 we’ve waited to add it to Payara Enterprise because it created breaking changes.
Payara Enterprise previously supported MicroProfile 3.3 which was based on Java EE 8.0 artifacts. MicroProfile 4.1 is based on Jakarta EE 8.0 artifacts. Please note if you use MicroProfile and upgrade to the Payara Enterprise 5.30.0 release (August 2021) you may have to change config values or make updates to your applications using MicroProfile.
In addition to upgrading from MicroProfile 3.3 to 4.1 support in Payara Enterprise, we also upgraded from MicroProfile 4.0 to 4.1 support in the Payara Community Edition by implementing MicroProfile Health 3.1 to introduce a @Startup annotation. If you were already using MicroProfile 4.0 the MicroProfile 4.1 release is a minor release and does not include incompatible changes.
The most important breaking changes can be found on the following documentation pages:
- MicroProfile Config
- MicroProfile Fault Tolerance
- MicroProfile Health Check
- MicroProfile Metrics
- MicroProfile Open API
- MicroProfile OpenTracing
