When performing the configuration of the Payara Server for your application, you often need to supply a password. The password to connect to the database is a classic example, but there are many situations where you need to enter this kind of sensitive data.
With Payara Server, you have the option to hide this kind of sensitive data from the user, so that this information is much better secured.
Hibernate is the object/relational mapping tool that handles mapping of Java classes to relational tables and Java types to SQL data type. It’s a well-known framework in the Enterprise Java eco-system since it’s being actively developed for the last 16 years.
With this article, I’m going to show the ways of using Hibernate inside a sample application – source code available here – and deploy it onto Payara Server. I will be using the latest version of Hibernate, which is 5.2.10.Final at the time of writing.
The previous part of this blog showed how to take a thread dump of Payara Server. This part will go through reading these thread dumps, particularly in regard to identifying deadlocks.
Thread dumps are a useful tool for debugging an application that's running slowly, or is otherwise causing problems. A thread dump is a snapshot of what each running thread is doing at a particular moment. It allows you to see if a thread is running, waiting, or stalling. This two-part guide will show you how to take a thread dump of Payara Server, and how to get useful information from it.
In case you missed the news earlier this week - we are pleased to announce a new release of Payara Micro and Payara MicroProfile 171 to start the new year with a bang! With this new release, we have implemented substantial changes that are meant to improve the stability and usability of both 'regular' and MicroProfile version of Payara Micro. As is usual with our releases, keep special attention to our blog in the following weeks to read detailed articles on these changes and features to take full advantage of them!
For Payara support customers, LTS - Long Term Support - has been introduced for both Payara Micro and Payara MicroProfile so you can expect a full year of patch releases which only include fixes - great news for users who value stability over new features (find out more about the support services here)!
All new changes and features introduced in this release are also included in Payara MicroProfile unless explicitly stated.
Kick-starting yet another year, we are pleased to announce our largest release yet - Payara Server 22.214.171.124. Building on a year's worth of updates and improvements, in this release, you can find 18 brand new features and over 60 new fixes and enhancements for Payara Server & Payara Micro! Given the size of the additions, look out for detailed blogs in the near future. For now, check out below for a summary of the changes in 171 release, and have a look at the full release notes.
As a follow up to our 'Getting Started with Payara Micro Demo', we have another introductory video for you, this time demonstrating the Payara Micro API, using NetBeans and Maven.
Another quarter, another release! After an eventful 2016, November brings with it the final release of the year for Payara Server. This year, we've seen new services like Request Tracing and Health Check added, as well as the Slow SQL logger and SQL Trace Listeners. Revisiting the version of the documentation from 1 year ago and comparing the amount we have added since then is, frankly, astonishing!
Despite a bumper year for both new features and bug fixes, work continues apace! Below is a short summary of some of the things to look out for in a release that caps an incredible 12 months.
