The big community news of this month was the release of Jakarta EE 9.1! The Eclipse Foundation brought out Jakarta EE 9.1 Platform and Web Profile specifications and related TCKs - the first release since the breaking namespace change to jakarta. We've rounded up our articles & announcements on this subject below - and watch this space, as Payara Platform is very close to launching our own Compatible Implementation.
We also released the results of our Payara Platform Survery 2021 . Read in fullhere, including what we've learnt about the infrastructure you are using with the Payara Platform, what features you want to see, and our findings on how our users are adopting MicroProfileAPIs and new Jakarta EE versions.
We're already using the results of the survey to shape content that responds to recurring issues users are encountering. See Rudy'sblog on why you might be finding Payara Server slow and an easy fix you may not have tried, as issues with deployment speed was a common theme in our survey results.
As well as Payara's own content, the 'Monthly Catch' also includes our pick of the best from Java EE/Jakarta EE, MicroProfile, Java SE and DevOps influencers and authors this month, and wider industry news. We hope you enjoy, and make sure you are following us onLinkedIn and Twitter, and signed up to our blog, to get this content as it comes!
With immense pride, I can reveal that Payara has won theQueen’s Award for Enterprise for outstanding achievements in International Trade. This award is a testament to the hard work the whole of the Payara team have made in building the Payara company, community, customers, software, and team, over the past three years.
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.
Payara Server Web Profile (Enterprise Edition 5.23.0 and Community Edition 5.2020.6), has passed the approximately 18,000 open sourced licensed Jakarta EE 8 TCKs for the Web Profile Platform and is now a Jakarta EE 8 Web Profile compatible implementation. Payara Server is available for download here.
As we approach the release of Jakarta EE 9, we’ve rounded up blogs and podcasts that are looking ahead to the transition. We also found several useful articles on improving your use of Kubernetes in the Cloud, which continues to be a hot-button topic!
