Payara Tools for IntelliJ IDEA:
Payara IntelliJ IDEA tool's initial release is out and available on the JetBrains Marketplace and Payara Enterprise repository. Payara IntelliJ IDEA tools provide integration of the Payara Platform Enterprise & Community Editions into the IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.
Previously, Payara Server did not offer a convenient way to add extensions. If you wanted to add an extension, you had to download the Payara Server code base, build the entire repository, write your own extension and module, and basically act as a developer. We’re working to create a simplified way to add extensions to Payara Server, starting with the Notifier API.
With this major release of Payara Platform Enterprise, we're introducing Payara InSight - a new and improved version of the Community Edition's Monitoring Console. Enterprise Edition also features some tooling enhancements including IntelliJ support and NetBeans Community Tooling.
Meanwhile, the Payara Community Edition introduces support for the Jakarta EE 9 Platform as a Tech Preview feature and a major Notifier API Update.

We're happy to announce that Payara Platform Enterprise 5.21.2 (request here) Edition is out today!
We have been busy bringing new functionality to the monitoring console. The newest Domain RAG Status feature coming in the August 2020 release offers better integration of the Eclipse MicroProfile Health checks. This article will go into the details of the integration and showcase how it can be utilised in the monitoring console.
New in the Payara Server 5.2020.4 release (August 2020), RMI calls to an EJB hosted on Payara Server from a Java SE client will now have the active Span Context automatically propagated to the server, with a counterpart server-side span being created as a child of this client call. This fills in a gap in our existing Request Tracing service, and comes with the added benefit of allowing a user to propagate key:value pairs from a Java SE client to Payara Server (or simply from server to server) in a request as OpenTracing baggage items - of particular interest to those who utilise Context Propagation or similar features in other application servers.
With this patch release of Payara Platform Enterprise, we focus on stability and consolidation of the software components delivering value around your Enterprise subscription. Meanwhile, the Payara Community Edition introduces some security, stability, and monitoring improvements of features for testing, such as Remote EJB Tracing and Monitoring Console Domain RAG Status & Developer Metrics.
