Always Open Source

The Payara Foundation is a UK not for profit company that owns the IP for the source code of the Payara Platform. The Payara team develop the software and then donate the code to the Foundation for safe keeping. Why do we do this? We’re adding an additional level of security: the source code we develop will always remain open source and available to the public.
