  • Payara Platform 2021 Survey

    The Payara Platform 2021 Survey is underway and we’re inviting everyone to answer a few questions about your use of the Payara Platform and ecosystem components.

    We want to know what you like, what you want to see improved, and we’re giving you the opportunity to vote on new features you’d like to see added to the Payara Platform.

    Your survey  answers help drive future development efforts for the Payara Platform.

  • MicroProfile OpenTracing with Jaeger

    The MicroProfile OpenTracing specification defines behaviours and an API for accessing an OpenTracing compliant Tracer object within your JAX-RS application. The behaviours specify how incoming and outgoing requests will have OpenTracing Spans automatically created. The API defines how to explicitly disable or enable tracing for given endpoints.

    Jaeger, inspired by Dapper and OpenZipkin, is a distributed tracing system released as open source by Uber Technologies. It is used for monitoring and troubleshooting microservices-based distributed systems.

  • Creating a Kubernetes Operator in Java

    Kubernetes is much more than a runtime platform for Docker containers.

    Through its API, you can not only create custom clients, but you can also extend Kubernetes. Those custom Controllers are called Operators and work with application-specific custom resource definitions. You can not only write those Kubernetes operators in Go, but you can do this also in Java.

    In this talk, delivered by Payara’s Rudy De Busscher at JCON 2020, you will be guided through setting up and your first explorations of the Kubernetes API within a plain Java program.

  • How To Bring Your Java Microservices To The Cloud

    All companies are software companies, and businesses will always experience the challenge of keeping integrations between users and applications scalable, productive, fast, and of high quality.

    To combat this, cloud, microservices, and other modern solutions come up more and more in architectural decisions.

    Here is the question: Is Java prepared to deal with these diverse concepts in a corporate environment?

  • Java Predictions for 2021: Jakarta EE

    To celebrate the world of Java and predict our highlights for 2021, several key Foojay participants will share their thoughts and hopes during the coming days on Foojay, starting with Frank Delporte, Foojay Community Manager for the Raspberry Pi, and now continuing with Jadon Ortlepp, Foojay Community Manager for Microservices, who here provides the predictions of his Payara colleagues on Jakarta EE in 2021.

    “Jakarta EE will start driving improvements in APIs and Project Loom will drive new releases of many frameworks.”

  • Cloud Myth: Ahead of Time Compilation Will Save You Money

    The two main advantages of Java AOT natively compiled microservice frameworks are rapid boot times and reduced JVM memory usage. While technically impressive, the reality is that neither of these advantages delivers a significant economic or technical advantage when deploying to public clouds.

    Many Jakarta EE runtimes (like Payara Micro) are small and fast. They can run Jakarta EE applications as either monoliths or microservices in the cloud now, with no need to adapt or rewrite your applications to proprietary frameworks.

  • MicroProfile Metrics with Prometheus and Grafana

    In a distributed microservices architecture, it is important to have an overview of your systems in terms of CPU, memory management and other important metrics.

    This is called Observability, measuring the internal state of a system, in this case, the micro-services instances.

    The goal of MicroProfile Metrics is to expose monitoring data from the implementation in a unified way. It also defines a Java API so that the developer can define and supply his own values.

  • Securing Microservices with Auth0 and MicroProfile in Kubernetes

    In this day and age, securing enterprise platforms is a challenge that developers and consultants tackle in an uninformed manner, producing subpar solutions in most cases.

    This presentation by Ondrej Mihalyi at DevOpsCon showcases the strength of combining MicroProfile and an OAuth service by doing a live demonstration of securing enterprise Java microservices in Kubernetes.

  • Evolution of Microservices

    For some time now, there has been an undeniable growth in interest for Microservices. The core concept itself, however, is not that new.

    Microservices are an architectural type that builds on (mostly) RESTful web services. Where RESTful web services, in general, can be used for just about anything, for instance, to expose an API to external users, Microservices are specifically dedicated to be independent business services that together form a suite of such services that make up an application.
