Use Hibernate as a JPA Provider within Payara

The Payara Platform promises aggressive compatibility. Because we focus on providing an excellent application server, we do not seek to lock you in to a product suite or any particular tools. As you see in this blog, this is also true in the case of which implementation of the Jakarta Persistence API specification you choose to use. We explain why we run automatically with EclipseLink, but also why and how you may switch to Hibernate. 

Choose the tool that is right for your specific use case.

Google Remote Procedure Call, or gRPC, is an open source Remote Procedure Call (RPC) framework focused on high performance and portable to any environment. It is an alternative to REST, deemed by many as more efficient.

Thank You Community Contributors - February 2021 Release

In what’s been a strange start to the year, a silver lining is the growth of innovative communities, with people pushing themselves to build something valuable together - making use of a time when the majority of us are in lockdown. At Payara Services, this has taken the form of an uptake in contributors to the Payara Platform open source project - and it’s time to say a huge thank you! 

The Payara Platform Community versions are open source runtimes for development projects and containerized Jakarta EE and MicroProfile. This means we welcome contributions through GitHub from developers looking to shape the future of Enterprise Java - whether to Payara Server Community, supporting Jakarta EE in any environment; or Payara Micro Community, which is lightweight to suit containerized Jakarta EE deployments.

Since our end of year Contributor shout-out, we’ve seen some fantastic pull requests on our GitHub, that have since been incorporated into this latest February release. 

Payara Services team members have worked with Payara Platform users to create the very best innovations, leading to mutual learning and development - and most importantly, ensuring that Payara Platform remains innovative, creative and agile.
