Request tracing has been a feature in Payara Platform for a number of years now, and over time it has evolved and changed in a number of ways. The crux of what the feature is remains the same, however: tracing requests through various parts of your applications and the Payara Platform to provide details about their travels.
It's 6 months since I posted our last roadmap update and the team have been working hard to deliver what we promised at the beginning of the year and have released both our 191 and 192 releases since then. I therefore thought it was a good time to reflect on what we've delivered so far and what we've still got to do.
Another great month in the bag. There were awards, conferences, out of incubation releases, competitions, surveys and lots more going on. Below you will find a curated list of some of the most interesting news, articles and videos from this month. Cant wait until the end of the month? then visit our twitter page where we post all these articles as we find them!
Java EE Security API is one of the new APIs in Java EE 8. With Java EE currently being transferred and rebranded to Jakarta EE, this API will soon be rebranded to Jakarta Security, which is the term we'll use in this article. Jakarta Security is part of the Jakarta APIs, included and active in the Payara Platform by default with no configuration required in order to use it. With some effort, Jakarta Security can be used with Tomcat, as well.
Another very busy month for the Payara team! We had our annual "Payara Week" where we fly everyone in the company to our UK HQ for a week of close collaboration, celebration, review and fun! We also announced our new partner program "Payara Radiate".
This was a big month for the Payara Team. We just released Payara Platform 5.192, we toured all across Japan and there has been plenty going on in the Java world with the announcement by the Eclipse Foundation regarding the continued use of the javax namespace.
Today the Eclipse Foundation have announced an Update on Jakarta EE Rights to Java Trademarks which has dramatic implications for the future of Java EE and Jakarta EE. The Payara team have only recently learned about this - so we thought we would blog about how we feel this impacts customers and users of the Payara Platform. We'll also give our thoughts on how Jakarta EE should evolve given the constraints outlined in Mike Milinkovich's blog from the Eclipse Foundation.

Java EE 8 introduced a new API called the Java EE Security API (see JSR 375) or "EE Security" in short.
This new API, perhaps unsurprisingly given its name, deals with security in Java EE. Security in Java EE is obviously not a new thing though, and in various ways it has been part of the platform since its inception.
So what is exactly the difference between EE Security and the existing security facilities in Java EE? In this article we'll take a look at that exact question.
