Payara® Server Enterprise

Robust. Reliable. Supported.

Payara Server

The best application platform for Jakarta EE (Java EE) apps.

Payara Server Enterprise is a cloud-native middleware application platform supporting mission critical production systems with reliable and secure deployments of Jakarta EE applications on premise, in the cloud, or hybrid environments. A stable open source platform with monthly releases, bug fixes, and a 10-year software lifecycle, Payara Server is aggressively compatible with the ecosystem, cloud vendors, Docker, and Kubernetes. With a history stemming from the Java EE reference implementation GlassFish, those familiar with GlassFish will find many similarities with Payara Server but with significant improvements in the developer experience and performance.

Payara Server Features

Admin Console Auditing Service

Admin Console Auditing Service keeps track of all actions that are executed (manually or through the asadmin CLI tool) so that you can later determine if any problem was linked to a certain command that was executed. Learn more

Certificate Management

Certificate Management asadmin commands in Payara Server Enterprise makes it easier and faster to install and update SSL certificates while preventing mistakes. Learn more

Deployment Group (Clustering)

Payara Server’s Deployment Groups are an extremely flexible form of clustering as each instance can be part of one or more Deployment Groups. When a Deployment Group is restarted, a rolling restart of each instance is performed to ensure the information contained in the Domain Data Grid is kept. Learn more

Domain Data Grid

The Domain Data Grid makes it easy to create a cluster of Payara instances running your application and works right out-of-the-box in variety of network topologies with little to no configuration needed for Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Kubernetes, and LAN environments. Learn more

JMX Monitoring

JMX Monitoring in Payara Server allows you to gather information from MBeans and push it to external systems for processing and reporting without the need for external applications such as JConsole or VisualVM. Learn more

Payara InSight

The Payara InSight monitoring console provides a visual representation of all metrics collected by Payara Server Enterprise, including MicroProfile Metrics defined via annotations, making it possible to track application-level performance and status. Learn more

The Payara team is extremely proud to be among the first few companies to achieve Jakarta EE 8 Full Platform Compatibility, starting with Payara Platform 5.193.1. This is a significant milestone for Payara and the team has done a huge amount of work to get this done. I think this is a great adoption story for Jakarta EE in general as Payara Server is not a Java EE 8 implementation and this shows that Jakarta is an open standard and can bring in new organisations and implementations.
