The release of Jakarta EE 9 breaks a tradition of Java Enterprise. A legal requirement of the Java EE code donation from Oracle to the Eclipse Foundation is the change of the namespace of javax to jakarta.
But the change of the package and XML namespace in Jakarta EE 9 is only the beginning. The change of the namespace allows for new development and functionality, but all frameworks and libraries using one of the Java Enterprise specifications also need to be adjusted to the new version.
The last Payara Platform release of 2020 is here! With this patch release of Payara Platform Enterprise 5.23.1, we're introducing more improvements and component upgrades to Payara InSight as well as a couple useful bug fixes. Meanwhile, the Payara Platform Community 5.2020.7 introduces some improvements and additions to the MicroProfile specs in preparation for the upcoming MicroProfile 4.0 release. We are also happy to confirm that Payara Platform Web Profile is now Jakarta EE 8 compatible!

As leading contributors to the Jakarta EE project, Payara excitedly welcomes Jakarta EE 9 - now officially released!
Announced at today’s Jakarta One Livestream, the headline breaking change is the move from the package namespace javax to jakarta across the Jakarta EE 9 Platform, Web Profile specifications, and related TCKS.
Through our involvement in the Eclipse Foundation Jakarta EE Working Group, we are proud to play a major role in shaping, improving and championing Jakarta EE 9. The specifications will be key to the evolution of cloud native technologies for Java, also central to Payara's mission.
Payara Server Web Profile (Enterprise Edition 5.23.0 and Community Edition 5.2020.6), has passed the approximately 18,000 open sourced licensed Jakarta EE 8 TCKs for the Web Profile Platform and is now a Jakarta EE 8 Web Profile compatible implementation. Payara Server is available for download here.
What happens when an application designed for a small user base needs to be scaled up and moved to the cloud?
It needs to live in a distributed environment: responding to an appropriate number of concurrent user requests per second and ensuring users find the application reliable.
Though Jakarta EE and Eclipse MicroProfile can help with reliable clustering, there is no standard API in Jakarta EE that defines how clustering should work currently. This might change in the future, but in the meantime, this gap must be filled by DevOps engineers.
In this blog, we will cover 10 technical strategies to deal with clustering challenges when developing Jakarta EE and MicroProfile for cloud environments.
We recently held our regular monthly online event hosted by Rudy De Busscher to discuss the recent updates and enhancements to the Payara Platform in the latest release. For this months theme we also had a community discussion about the monitoring tools available in the Payara Platform, and our future plans.
For many years, Java EE has been a major platform for mission-critical enterprise applications. In order to accelerate business application development for a cloud-native world, leading software vendors collaborated to move Java EE technologies to the Eclipse Foundation where they continue to evolve under the Jakarta EE brand.
With this major release of Payara Platform Enterprise, we're introducing OpenAPI Refactor and some further improvements to Payara InSight. Meanwhile, the Payara Community Edition adds support for Payara Micro in the Eclipse IDE and a number of useful MicroProfile enhancements.
