Additional Features in Payara Server Enterprise That Are Not in WebLogic
Wondering what features you’ll have access to after you migrate to Payara Server? We're glad you asked! If you’re running Oracle WebLogic in production but are unhappy with the irregular releases and component upgrades, or the lack of MicroProfile support – you might consider migrating from WebLogic to Payara Server Enterprise. Payara Server Enterprise offers monthly releases and component upgrades – as well as natively supported OAuth2/OpenID Connect, support for MicroProfile, and the availability of a microservices distribution (Payara Micro).
