Are GlassFish and Payara Server the Same?

When commercial support for GlassFish ended in 2014, Payara Server was created from the open source code as a fully supported drop-in replacement for GlassFish.  

Payara Services was born in 2016 to offer support solutions for Payara Server. By 2017, Payara Services had joined The Eclipse Foundation and the Payara Platform expanded to include Payara Micro and comprehensive commercial support options for development projects, in-production support, and consultancy solutions.  New product features and the development of the Payara Platform evolves and is improved upon with each monthly release, and while the application server was originally derived from GlassFish and shares many similarities - the two products are not the same. 

GlassFish to Payara Server Migration Resources

Payara Server was created in 2014 as a fully-supported drop-in replacement for GlassFish. As Payara Server developed, its popularity has grown quickly among the community due to an open and responsive development team, a regular release cycle, and the introduction of crucial production enhancements that were never available in GlassFish. Migrating from GlassFish to Payara Server can be simple and straightforward - and we make it even easier with migration guides and a growing library of migration resources.

Benefits of Migrating from GlassFish to Payara Server Enterprise 5

Payara Server Enterprise 5 is a cloud-native middleware application platform supporting mission critical production systems with reliable and secure deployments of Jakarta EE (Java EE) applications on premise, in the cloud, or hybrid environments. If you’ve been running GlassFish in production but are struggling with a lack of support and infrequent application server releases, bug fixes, and patches - or you want to run on JDK 11, you’ll benefit from migrating from GlassFish to Payara Server.
