Jakarta EE is the most popular Java server-side framework, way ahead its alleged competitors such as Spring, Quarkus, Micronaut or Dropwizard. With the industry-wide adoption of microservices based architectures, its popularity is skyrocketing and, during these last years, it has become the preferred framework for professional software enterprise applications and services development in Java.
In this blog, I'll explain more about Jakarta EE from my perspective as a Senior Java software architect/developer and why Jakarta EE and its runtimes beat the competition, in my opinion!
These days the world-wide open-source community celebrates the advent of Jakarta EE 10. It is then a good time to look at one of its most relevant and, at the same time, unknown parts: security!
In this blog, I'll give an introduction to Jakarta EE Security, and then explain how Payara Platform builds on Jakarta EE Security with built-in identity stores for RDBMS (Relational Database Management System) and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol).
Payara Platform is an open source middleware platform that supports Jakarta EE (formerly Java EE) applications in ANY environment: on premise, in the cloud, or hybrid.
It is a solution to GlassFish problems such as lack of supported Docker images and automation assistance, no internal monitoring system and an absence of modern security standards and critical server event alerts and notfiers. It is also an alternative to Oracle Weblogic, Wildfly, JBoss EAP, WebSphere, OpenLiberty and more.
Our previous Getting Started guide had not been updated with improvements to Payara Platform, such as our hide password with password aliases feature - and did not contain comprehensive guides to integration with other technologies.
We’re pleased to announce that our October 2021 Payara Platform Survey results are now available!
This survey was promoted to our audience in October 2021. We shared with Payara Platform Enterprise customers and Community users via social media, emails and blogs. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to contribute!
The September 2021 Payara Platform release is here! Both Payara Platform Enterprise and Payara Platform Community Editions include a security fix that requires you to take action to ensure the security of your environment. (Explained below).
Payara Platform Enterprise 5.31.0 and Payara Platform Community 5.2021.7 releases each contain 10 bug fixes, 1 component upgrade, 1 security fix and 1 new feature.
Read more below to learn more about the highlights of this release.
The Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) framework is used to easily convert between XML and Java class instances. You just have to define some annotations on the Java classes and properties and the framework uses those definitions to convert between them. But is also heavily used within the Java EE specification Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS) that implements the support for SOAP messages within Java Enterprise.
Alongside the Jakarta EE 9.1 release, GlassFish 6.1 has been released as a Compatible Implementation.
However, although GlassFish is still used by many - a legacy of the time it was supported by Oracle - we would argue it is NOT a good choice for running your enterprise applications in production.
If you are considering updating to more recent GlassFish versions, it might be better to consider more reliable, supported, and up-to-date alternatives. In this blog, I explain why GlassFish 6.x is not the best choice for your mission critical deployments.
The HTTP Strict-Transport-Security response header (often abbreviated as HSTS) tells the browser that it should access the website only using HTTPS, instead of using HTTP.
The May 2021 releases of the Payara Platform, Community version 5.2021.3 and Enterprise version 5.28.0, allow you to configure the HSTS header.
We kicked off the year with the Payara Roadmap for 2021.

In this May update, Steve gives a check-in on how we are progressing along our roadmap, with a retrospective on the year so far and details on what the rest of the year is set to look like. He provides a snapshot of where we are in relation to the plans and projects he mapped out at the beginning of the year.
