“GlassFish v3 became the killer application server in 2009, then Oracle dropped the commercial support.
I was skeptical as Payara was announced at JavaOne 2014 conference in San Francisco and I was proved wrong. Since two years an endless stream of commit messages, pull requests and comments dominates my GitHub timeline.
The Payara Server is surrounded by vibrant community, nice engineers and capable support.
Particularly non-functional features important for devops, Continuous Deployment and “microservices” like convenient command line, extensive RESTful monitoring (used in LightFish), or nice admin web interface are important for enterprise projects.”
– Adam Bien, JavaONE Rockstar, Consultant, Java Champion
“Payara is a great and solid product with a warm and friendly team.
The laser sharp focus on specifically their application server and the community around it is very special, Payara is an active contributor to not only their own technologies but also the ecosystem and tangentially related open source projects.
I’m involved in the Apache NetBeans community and it is important that a development environment integrates well with tools such as application servers. The Payara team over many years has been solid in providing that integration for the Payara application server, have been involved in related community events, and are always open for discussions and help as and when needed, as well as being responsive to any issues encountered.”
– Geertjan Wielenga, Senior Director of Open Source Projects
“Since Oracle dropped support for GlassFish, I’ve been looking for a replacement. I still think GlassFish architecture is the best on the market today, but due to lack of resources from Oracle, it became stale, and bugs weren’t fixed.
Then, I found Payara. I was initially afraid that Payara Server wasn’t going to track GlassFish progress, but since that progress is so few and far between, this fear quickly dissipated.
I started using Payara Server and haven’t looked back. The killer feature has really been Hazelcast integration. This has finally enabled me to achieve zero-downtime deployment and upgrades.”
– Lenny Primak, Experienced Java Developer
