Caching REST Resources In Jakarta REST (formerly JAX-RS)

REST, or Representational State Transfer, is the web standard for building APIs and applications. It offers a lightweight architecture for exchanging data between applications over the web. Jakarta REST (formerly JAX-RS) is the standard API for building RESTful web services on the Jakarta EE Platform. 

This blog post looks at caching within Jakarta REST. We'll explore how to use the built-in features and functionalities to enhance the performance and user experience of your RESTful APIs through resource caching. By using these techniques, you can significantly reduce server load, improve responsiveness, and enhance the overall efficiency of your web resources.

Microservices Mania: Are Moduliths the Saner Path to Scalable Architectures?

Introduction

Lately, microservices have become extremely popular in software design. They offer the ability to scale, deploy updates independently and use different technologies. However, it's easy to forget how complex microservices can be to manage. Inspired in part by the introduction of Spring Modulith, a top-level Spring project aimed at helping developers create evolvable applications, this blog post takes a fresh look at the concept of modularity.

Payara Micro Maven Plugin, Version 1, introduces a powerful tool – Dev Mode – designed to supercharge your development experience with Payara Micro. 

In our latest User Guide - available to download here - we look at this plugin, exploring its features, configurations and usage to help developers unlock stratospheric levels of productivity.

Getting Started with Apache Kafka on Jakarta EE and Payara Server

When dealing with complex distributed systems, decoupled, asynchronous communications may be more suited to support the exchange of information between different parts of a system, or even completely different systems. In effect, this decoupling makes it possible for different parts of a system to interact without being directly connected, enhancing scalability and fault tolerance. It is possible to set up such communications through a messaging platform like Apache Kafka and design highly scalable applications.

Our new eBook - available to download here - discusses how to use Apache Kafka for Jakarta EE Platforms that use Payara Server. 

Watch webinar recording - Mastering Java Message Service: A Jakarta EE Developer's Guide

Asynchronous communications are an essential elements of flexible and scalable Jakarta EE applications, as they can support the independent processing of multiple tasks, leading to improved performance and responsiveness. This webinar with Petr Aubrecht  & Luqman Saeed - watch here - delves into the world of Java Message Service (JMS) and its integration within Jakarta EE applications to help developers harness the power of asynchronous communications and messaging for enhanced architectures.

Expressive REST Resources with Java Records and Jakarta REST

Modern web applications often adopt a layered architecture to separate concerns and improve maintainability. In this paradigm, your REST API acts as a communication layer, exposing resources to clients while interacting with the deeper layers of your application. Leveraging Java Records as Data Transfer Objects (DTOs) in this context helps to simplify the design of your REST resources, making them more expressive and easier to work with.

Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment for Jakarta EE Applications Made Easy

Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) activities are designed to convey your Jakarta EE applications to end users. Thanks to the unique flexibility of Jakarta EE, multiple CI/CD options are available to software developers. In effect, these are independent from your specific Jakarta EE. 

Watch the video below to learn more about some of the CI/CD alternatives available, what they can offer as well as guide you through how you can implement them. You will be able to follow a demonstration on configuring GitHub Actions for CI/CD and deploying a Jakarta EE applications from the IDE, through GitHub, and onto Payara Cloud. You will also be able to learn how to deploy and manage your applications on Payara Cloud.
