Deploying to Payara Cloud from a GitHub Action Workflow

Payara Cloud provides an easy-to-use user interface to allow your application to run in a managed cloud environment. While this is very convenient for configuration and troubleshooting work, integration in continuous deployment pipelines calls for something else.

 Our answer is deploying to Payara Cloud using a GitHub Action Workflow and Payara Cloud Command Line (PCL). 

Ignore Infrastructure and Concentrate on Code with Jakarta EE and Payara Cloud

Java EE, now Jakarta EE, makes it possible for developers to focus purely on the development of a Java enterprise application, solving the business logic without needing to think about infrastructure and operations when writing code. Payara Cloud extends this philosophy by also eliminating the need to worry about infrastructure and operations when preparing your application to run in the cloud. Together, Jakarta EE and Payara Cloud let you focus on writing code and delivering solutions to business challenges from the moment you write your first piece of code to the day people are using your application successfully on the cloud.

We are currently offering limited free previews of Payara Cloud to businesses - follow the link below:


Payara at the JakartaOne Livestream

The JakartaOne Livestream is a huge event in the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile calendar. Organised by the Eclipse Foundation, it is a one-day virtual conference for developers and technical business leaders.

It brings insight into the current state and future of Jakarta EE and related technologies focused on developing cloud-native Java applications. 

VIDEO: Adam Bien - The Future is Now (Payara Cloud)

Adam Bien explored the possibilities of Payara Cloud in his recent talk for the 2021 J4K conference! 

He used the Payara Cloud demonstration environment - with the caveat that the user interface is not completed yet - to demonstrate how our next generation application server creates a "serverless" environment; moving the "plumbing behind the scenes" so you only have to worry about selecting your WAR, clicking deploy, and running it on the cloud! 

Official Microsoft Azure Sample for Payara Micro

Payara Server has a strong relationship withMicrosoft Azureand theJava at Microsoft team - and now, there's an official best practice Azure Sample for running Payara MicroonAzure Kubernetes Service(AKS)! 

This is a reaction to more and more Azure customers wanting to run Payara on Azure, with many moving from GlassFishto Payara Micro on AKS. It also precedes the next step for Azure and Payara:  releasingPayara Cloud as a PaaS running on Azure.

How to Search Log Entries in Payara Cloud

Payara Cloud (launching soon!) delivers an easier way to run your Jakarta EE applications on the cloud. You can upload any web application that follows the Jakarta Web profile specification and click deploy - Payara Cloud will configure and run it in a containerized Payara Micro instance.

Unlike building an application server deployment on a Cloud Infrastructure as a Service or on raw Kubernetes, Payara Cloud takes on a Platform as a Service (PaaS) role and handles provisioning of the infrastructure, installation, configuration, deployment, and scaling your application to eliminate costs and reduce the risks of managing Jakarta EE application servers on Cloud.

You can search the log entries easily within Payara Cloud if you suspect errors or expect a message within the log file. 

Quickly Configure a Database Connection with Payara Cloud

Payara Cloud (launching soon!) is the next generation of cloud-native application runtime, offering an easier way to run your Jakarta EE applications on the cloud. It will take any web application that follows the Jakarta Web profile specification and run it in a containerized Payara Micro instance - and all you need to do is upload your WAR file and click deploy. 

How to Set Custom Domains for your Applications in Payara Cloud

Payara Cloud is an all-in-one serverless platform and PaaS solution for Jakarta EE (Java EE) and MicroProfile applications that simplifies cloud infrastructure management. With Payara Cloud, you don’t need to worry about application servers or deal with Kubernetes. Standard and Premium Payara Cloud subscribers can set custom domains for their applications.

Adam Bien: Overview of Next Generation Cloud Java Runtimes (Video)

As part of Closed Beta testing, we offeredJakarta EEexpert, Java Champion,bloggerand podcaster,Adam Biena trial of our next-generation cloud-native application runtime,  Payara Cloud. 

He went on to discuss Payara Cloud as an alternative to HelidonandQuarkus; a 'serverless server'. He included it in hisMid-Year 2021 Observations and Reflectionsand created a video with hisinitial thoughts. Read our previous blog, rounding up his comments so far,here.

At theJ4Kconference this year, he went into further detail. He told viewers:“I really like the idea [of Payara Cloud]. Why? Because it is the opposite of where everyone is going with smaller and smaller runtimes, you can go that route or another route.” You can now view the video of this talk to watch him demonstrate Payara Cloud live and see how he reached this conclusion.
