Payara for Beginners - Adding Payara Server to NetBeans

This blog uses NetBeans 11.1. If you're using an older version, you may need to perform slightly different steps to get the same result.

When testing an app to be run on Payara Server, it can be extremely useful to be able to test your app continuously from your IDE. If you're using NetBeans this is made very easy. Follow the steps in this blog to setup NetBeans to use Payara Server for running your web apps.

Creating Uber JAR with Payara Micro 5

Payara Micro allows you to run web applications in a self-contained and easy way. Since the release of the Payara Server in May 2016, there is a simple way to generate an "Uber" JAR that bundles the contents of a WAR file and the classes and resources that compose Payara Micro!

Note that this "Uber" Jar is not the best way to run your application in a Docker container as it requires an update of the entire binary for each small code change you make in the application. A better solution is just to start a Payara Micro Instance and point to the application that needs to be installed. More information can be found on our Payara Micro Docker Image documentation.
