New Webinar Series! Dismiss the Myths: Get to Know Jakarta EE

Last week, we announced our exciting new webinar series, 'Dismiss the Myths: Get to Know Jakarta EE (Java EE). This is a series of 6 webinars, every Wednesday at 3.00pm BST for the next 6 weeks - with the first one taking place this Wednesday! 

Our CEO and FounderSteve Millidge is leading this series, taking one common misconception about Jakarta EE ( previously Java EE ) at a time. Turns out, you might be wrong in thinking Java is behind the times...

This is also the perfect webinar series if you have heard Jakarta EE or Java EE mentioned but aren't sure what it is, what the namespace change means or where its future lies. Steve will be catering to users who are new to the technology as well as long-time Jakarta EE developers. 

The Payara Monthly Catch for May 2021

The big community news of this month was the release of Jakarta EE 9.1! The Eclipse Foundation brought out Jakarta EE 9.1 Platform and Web Profile specifications and related TCKs - the first release since the breaking namespace change to jakarta. We've rounded up our articles & announcements on this subject below - and watch this space, as Payara Platform is very close to launching our own Compatible Implementation. 

We also released the results of our Payara Platform Survery 2021 . Read in fullhere, including what we've learnt about the infrastructure you are using with the Payara Platform, what features you want to see, and our findings on how our users are adopting MicroProfileAPIs and new Jakarta EE versions. 

We're already using the results of the survey to shape content that responds to recurring issues users are encountering. See Rudy'sblog on why you might be finding Payara Server slow and an easy fix you may not have tried, as issues with deployment speed was a common theme in our survey results. 

As well as Payara's own content, the 'Monthly Catch' also includes our pick of the best from Java EE/Jakarta EE, MicroProfile, Java SE and DevOps influencers and authors this month, and wider industry news. We hope you enjoy, and make sure you are following us onLinkedIn and Twitter, and signed up to our blog, to get this content as it comes! 

GlassFish 6.1 Should Not Be Used In Production: Here’s Why

Earlier this week, Jakarta EE 9.1 was released. This is an update to Jakarta EE 9, adding support for JDK 11 - you can read more about it in our bloghere.

Alongside the Jakarta EE 9.1 release, GlassFish 6.1 has been released as a Compatible Implementation

However, although GlassFish is still used by many - a legacy of the time it was supported by Oracle - we would argue it is NOT a good choice for running your enterprise applications in production.

If you are considering updating to more recent GlassFish versions, it might be better to consider more reliable, supported, and up-to-date alternatives. In this blog, I explain why GlassFish 6.x is not the best choice for your mission critical deployments.

Jakarta EE 9.1 Launches!

Payara Services are celebrating the release of Jakarta EE 9.1 Platform and Web Profile specifications and related TCKs.

With Jakarta EE 9.1, global source community Eclipse Foundation brings to Java developers the first incremental Jakarta EE release since the new namespace was introduced last year. Read the Eclipse Foundation announcement here - featuring a quote from our Founder and CEO Steve Millidge.

Payara's team have not only worked hard to ensure Jakarta EE 9.1 applications can be run in Payara Platform 5, but Payara Platform 6 alpha one is very close to being ready as a Compatible Implementation. Watch this space! 

Getting Started with Jakarta EE 9: Context And Dependency Injection (CDI)

In this series about getting started with Jakarta EE 9, we look at various specifications and how you can use them for your next application. In the previous blogs of this series, we set up our development environment and had a closer look at implementing REST endpoints.

This time, I will explain a few features of Context and Dependency Injection (CDI). The CDI specification is an important backbone of Jakarta EE as it brings several specifications together. Over the years, it became more and more important as an increasing number of specifications started using CDI as the basis for it.

In this blog, I will tell a bit about the different scopes, the interceptor mechanism, and the Event system.

May Payara Roadmap Overview Webinar

We kicked off the year with the Payara Roadmap for 2021. In this January webinar, Steve provided: detail on benefits of the Jakarta EE model; how the Payara Platform is evolving and moving toward Payara 6; updates and progress of the Payara Cloud project, our new PaaS product; and latest news regarding the next major OpenJDK release - JDK 17 Long Term Support (LTS) and what that means for Payara Platform.

In this May update, Steve gives a check-in on how we are progressing along our roadmap, with a retrospective on the year so far and details on what the rest of the year is set to look like. He provides a snapshot of where we are in relation to the plans and projects he mapped out at the beginning of the year.

The Payara Monthly Catch: April 2021

It's been an incredibly exciting month for Team Payara! We were honoured with a Queen's Award for Enterprise. This is the UK's most prestigious business award, often called the 'Knighthood for Businesses' and our award particularly recognises our international sucess. CEO and Founder Steve Millidge thanked the entire team in his blog, which also went more into detail about what this means for the wider Jakarta EE and MicroProfile community. 

In other Payara Services news, we're also 'buzzing' about our new Charity of the Year, the Bumblebee Conservation Trust - and see Payaran Lenny Primak below on Adam Bien's podcast, and Rudy De Busscher joining forces with IntelliJ IDEA! 

Community highlights included the release of the latest version of IntelliJ IDEA, with our engineersworking hard to update our Payara Platform pugins accordingly due to high demand from the community. We were also excited by news of the newMicrosoft Build of OpenJDK.
