The Payara Monthly Catch: July 2021

Welcome to our July Payara Monthly Catch - a collection of articles, videos & podcasts around Java, Jakarta EE, MicroProfile, open source and cloud computing. This month, the list mixes up quirky content you may not have seen - weird programming facts, tips on using the Snowflake Database - to insight from some of the most esteemed experts in the industry. Payara Platform has also been appearing all over the web, as influencers and our community use it in demos and discuss our products in conferences. Find out where Payara can be found across external blogs, conferences and media outlets in our 'Featuring Payara and Payarans' section.

On the internal news side, we announced that Payara Server Community 6.2021.1.Alpha1 is now a Certified Jakarta EE 9.1 9.1 (Full Profile) Compatible Product! Even though we aren't encouraging users to run Payara Server 6 in production yet - you can achieve the same result, migrating to Java SE 11, in Payara Server 5 - this is important news in the journey of Payara Platform products alongside Jakarta EE.

We also published a full summary of what we got up to for our annual team-bonding company event, Payara Week - from chocolate Payara fishes to cocktail making challenges, open source business model learning to daily workshops. Make sure you read ithere! You can also watch videos from our summer webinar series, 'Dismiss the Myths: Get to know Java EE / Jakarta EE'here - the second half of the sessions took place this month.

The Payara Monthly Catch: June 2021

June has been another busy month here at Payara Services, both internally - with our biggest yearly company event, Payara Week, taking place - and externally - with our 'Dismiss the Myths' Webinar series kicking off and proving to be one of our most popular community events yet. 

We're halfway through 'Dismiss the Myths: Get to Know Jakarta EE (Java EE)' , a series of 6 webinars where our CEO and Founder Steve Millidgedismantles common misconceptions one by one. Check out thisblog for links to watch webinars that have already taken place, and sign up to the next three! 

As for Payara Week, you may have seen the social media content around our team-building, future-planning, fun-having annual company summit - this time virtual, but no less engaging! We'll be following up with a full blog with pictures and details, but peek at one of the reimagined Payara Fishes from the week's photo competitions below. 

We also got a Twitter blue-tick this month - proving once and for all that we are 'authentic, notable and active' - in our case, when it comes to providing top Jakarta EE and Java EE, MicroProfileand cloud content!

Momentum also continued to grow for our next-generation cloud native application runtimePayara Cloud, with key influencer Adam Bien presenting on it as an alternative toHelidon and Quarkus at the j4k conference. You can find out what he already had to say in his initial trial of the product here. 

But it hasn't all been 'the Payara Show'. We've also searched for and shared the best tutorials, updates, news, articles and videos from our wider community - find them below! 

Payara Micro 5によるUber JARの作成

Payara Microでは、Webアプリケーションを自己完結型で簡単に実行することができます。20165月のPayara Serverリリースからは、WARファイルの内容とPayara Microを構成するクラスやリソースを束ねる “Uber JAR” を作成する簡単な方法があります。

この “Uber” Jarは、Dockerコンテナ内でアプリケーションを実行するための最良の方法ではないことに注意してください。アプリケーションに小さなコード変更を加えるたびに、バイナリ全体のアップデートが必要になるためです。より良い方法は、Payara Microインスタンスを起動して、インストールが必要なアプリケーションを指定することです。詳細については Payara Micro Docker Image documentation をご覧ください。

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. 

Read more about all this and more in the below round-up of news, articles, videos and podcasts. 

The Payara Monthly Catch: March 2021

It's that time again, our March monthly catch! The "fishes" in our "net" are Java, Jakarta EE, Open Source and Microprofile articles, news stories, videos and podcasts we've found useful and interesting, as well as a few Payara Services updates.

Big news this month is the General Availability release of Java 16. Articles under the 'Java EE' subheading in our Community news section below provide expert opinions on what's new in this release.

The Payara Monthly Catch: February 2021

In our February Monthly Catch,  we’ve rounded up a wide range of the most useful learning materials, community news pieces, videos and podcasts from the world of Java, Jakarta EE and MicroProfile - and of course provided updates from Team Payara!

As we progress into the year, the new releases of Jakarta EE - including the breaking namespace change - and MicroProfile are becoming more embedded and discussed. For example, it was great to see Dalia Shea from JetBrains discuss using the new “jakarta” namespace, and Michael Redlich at InfoQ summarizing the JakartaOne conference where Jakarta EE 9 was officially announced.

We’re also seeing a lot of looking round the corner to what’s next for our community: to JDK 17, as well as the innovations coming through Project Loom and Project Panama.

It also seems to be unofficial survey season! We’ve launched our own, Omnifaces have published its survey’s fascinating results looking into JakartaEE and MicroProfile, and you still have time to answer questions forthe Snyk and Azul survey that came out this month. It’s exciting to see so many opportunities for people to feedback, drive and shape the future of Enterprise Java and its associated technologies.

Enjoy!

How to Improve Domain Data Grid Performance

One of the cornerstones of any modern Payara Platform architecture is the use of the Domain Data Grid. The Domain Data Grid allows multiple Payara Server or Payara Micro instances to join and form a robust cluster of interchangeable nodes that can share data between each other and grant High Availability and Failover capabilities to any applications deployed in the cluster. 

Payara Services Joins MicroProfile Working Group

Payara is pleased to announce that we have joined the MicroProfile Working Group. This builds on our commitment to shaping and improving Enterprise Java for both microservices and monolithic architectures. 

The MicroProfile project was born as a community initiative to optimise Enterprise Java with a microservices standard platform. It joined theEclipse Foundation in 2017, an independent open source software association, with the goal of driving innovation with a vendor-neutral "incubation" environment.

The Eclipse Foundation's MicroProfile Working Group encourages collaboration between participants, working in short cycles to propose and gain approval for new common APIs and functionality - and in turn drawing on the knowledge of a wide variety of different vendors. As one of the contributors, Payara engineers will shape and drive the future of the MicroProfile specifications.

We talked to our Founder and CEO Steve Millidge to find out more about what this means. 

Cloud Myth: Ahead of Time Compilation Will Save You Money

There is a lot of interest in the server-side Java community around using ahead of time (AOT) native compilation provided by Graal Substrate VM to drive down memory usage and cold start times of Java microservices. While these frameworks are technically interesting, the claim is if you spend time rewriting your Jakarta EE applications to utilise these new frameworks, then you will substantially reduce your cloud operational costs. First, by enabling the adoption of a serverless deployment model and second by reducing your containers' memory usage. 

MicroProfile, Your Cloud-Native Companion for Enterprise Java

Writing microservices within Jakarta EE is technically possible, but you miss a few goodies for the distributed environment you are running in.

MicroProfile wants to optimize your Enterprise Java application by creating Java standards which link to some well known CloudNative standards like etcd for Configuration, OpenTracing and Jaeger for Distributed Tracing and Prometheus for Metrics.

In this talk, delivered by Payara's Rudy De Busscher at EclipseCon, he goes over some basic concepts of the MicroProfile specifications and show you through various demos how the integration with those tools can be done easily.
