Request Tracing Service in Payara Server & Payara Micro

Have you ever wondered whether your application is slow to respond to requests? Which requests take the longest to respond to? And what you can do about it? Payara Server aims to provide the best tooling you would need to identify performance issues, identify their causes and help you solve them. One part of this tooling is the new Request Tracing service, available in Payara Server and Payara Micro from version 163 as a technical preview.

 

Asadmin Recorder - New Payara Server Feature Demo

One of the most exciting new features in the Payara Server 162 release is the Asadmin Recorder - a tool especially useful for the Operations Teams! 

Asadmin Recorder allows you to create runnable scripts of asadmin commands that mirror configuration done in the administration console.  Have a look at our video walkthrough below for a quick overview of this new Payara Server feature.

 

Deploying Multiple Application Versions on Payara Server

Payara Server makes it possible to deploy multiple versions of the same application at the same time. While only one of the deployed versions can be enabled and running, all the other versions remain on the server and you may enable them at any time to immediately switch the running versions.

 

Securing Payara Server with Custom SSL Certificate

One of the most common administration tasks with Payara Server, as well as with any web server, is to set up certificates to secure either HTTP protocol or remote access to Payara Server administration interface. You might have a self-signed certificate or a certificate signed by a trusted authority. In both cases it is pretty easy to add them to a Payara Server domain and use them to secure communication channels. 

 

Working with GlassFish & Payara Server Dotted Names

Many of you will know of some of the common asadmin commands, such as start-domain, create-cluster, and change-admin-password, some of which I covered in a previous blog written for GlassFish (which still holds true for Payara Server).

Unfortunately, there is not a specific asadmin command for every configurable attribute in GlassFish or Payara Server. This is where dotted names, and the get, set, and list commands come in.
