Waters is the editor in chief of theConverge360 news and information sites Application Development Trends(ADT Mag), Pure AI, and Futuretech360 - with his career also including writing books, including "The Everything Guide to Social Media," one of the first deep dives into this world-changing phenomenon, and "Blobitecture," an exploration of an architectural and industrial design trend enabled by computer software. He also co-scripted the documentary film "Silicon Valley: A 100 Year Renaissance," which aired on PBS.
Steve had a conversation over Zoom with John. Steve - in Malvern, England, after work - spoke to John - in his Silicon Valley office just before 9am. Their discussion was wide-ranging and insightful, covering everything from the future of Jakarta EE and how it will fare under Eclipse Foundation stewardship, to the specifics of Payara's journey and how we got our marine logo! It's a must listen for those interested in open source and Enterprise Java.
When performing the configuration of the Payara Server for your application, you often need to supply a password. The password to connect to the database is a classic example, but there are many situations where you need to enter this kind of sensitive data.
With Payara Server, you have the option to hide this kind of sensitive data from the user, so that this information is much better secured.
There are a lot of monitoring and alert mechanisms available within Payara Server. For example, it is possible to report user requests or database calls that take too long, or to report when high CPU or high memory usage occurs. But it is sometimes not easy to identify 'why' a request takes such a long time.
After you've got familiar with administering Payara Server, having configured your domain and deployed your applications, you might find it useful to get some more information on features supporting maintenance of your domain in the longer term. If you are not quite there yet, have a look at our resources page or our getting started page.
Docker is a platform which makes it easier to create, deploy and run your applications using containers. A container bundles all the software needed to run it. By packaging the required dependencies, it makes it easy to run it on any machine, regardless of small configuration differences. This article will explain more about introducing Docker.
Transport Layer Security (TLS) was introduced as a replacement for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). TLS is a cryptographic protocol which provides secure communication between a client and a server. It also provides a mechanism by which information is not tampered with, falsified or read by anyone other than the intended receiver. TLS 1.3 was released in August 2018 to replace the widely used TLS 1.2. TLS 1.3 comes with stronger cryptographic algorithms and brings in major improvements in performance, security and privacy, which will be discussed in this blog.
