In a world where technology never sleeps, staying ahead is not just an advantage; it's a necessity. This is especially true for organisations running enterprise-level applications on Java EE 8 through Payara Enterprise 5. While this platform has undoubtedly served you well, the release of Jakarta EE 10 and Payara Enterprise 6 marks the beginning of a new era in Enterprise Java development.
If you’re running GlassFish in your production or development environment and are worried about the lack of support, infrequent application server releases, security issues, lack of bug fixes and patches – then migrating off GlassFish might be the best option for you.
In this webinar (register here), Fabio Turizo (Head of Payara Service Team), together with Jon Weatherhill (Payara Customer Support Team), will explain all the things you need to consider in order to make a migration as smooth as possible.
We recently created a new guide to help you move from WebSphere Application Server to Payara Server 5.
Payara is better than WebSphere, for reasons including Payara's more regular releases, greater variety of supported IDEs, a compatible microservices edition (Payara Micro) and varied monitoring options.
Hermes, the logistics provider, is just one company which made the change from WebSphere to Payara Server!
Payara Server Enterprise 5 is a cloud-native middleware application platform supporting mission critical production systems with reliable and secure deployments of Jakarta EE (Java EE) applications on premise, in the cloud, or hybrid environments. If you’ve been running WebLogic in production but are struggling with an infrequent release schedule, bug fixes, and patches - or if you want support for Eclipse MicroProfile, you’ll benefit from migrating from WebLogic to Payara Server Enterprise.
Both Payara Server and Oracle WebLogic servers can be considered classic application servers, but in addition to running classic Enterprise applications on Payara Server, it also complies with more recent trends in the industry. In this blog, we'll cover 6 technical reasons why you should choose Payara Server over WebLogic:
Migrating applications from WildFly to Payara Server can be a simple and straightforward process because both servers rely on the Jakarta EE (Java EE) specifications. However, there are differences in many areas because many Java EE APIs in WildFly and Payara Server are implemented by different components. Moreover, the configuration of certain aspects like external resources, high-availability and deployment is not covered by any specification and is, in fact, very different in both servers. Although Payara Server offers similar features as WildFly, they are often based on different technologies and concepts, and often also use different terminology. Therefore, before going into migration from WildFly to Payara Server, we’ll provide you with an overview of similar features and concepts that exist in both WildFly and Payara Server.
