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.
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.
