Use Jakarta EE Identity Store With Payara and RDBMS

In my previous blog post,here,I examined the JSR-375 specifications and their implementation by Jakarta EE and, more specifically, by the Payara Platform (Server and Micro).

I presented a brief overview of the JSR-375 specifications and their new features, focusing on the notion of Identity Store and illustrating, with a simple example, one of the most common use cases: the LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) based authentication and authorization process.

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.
