Guide: GlassFish 7 To Payara Platform Enterprise Migration

The GlassFish application server was once the go-to platform for deploying Java EE applications. However, Oracle’s decision to cease commercial support marked a shift, making GlassFish less viable for businesses. If your organization still depends on GlassFish for production workloads, it’s time to evaluate the advantages of Payara Platform, a commercially supported runtime for your applications.

Payara Server Enterprise offers a stable, fully supported solution, ensuring the security, reliability, and expert support your business needs to thrive. Originally created as a drop-in replacement for GlassFish after its support ended, Payara Server has evolved into a robust commercial implementation of Java EE and Jakarta EE, featuring a rich set of functionalities. As a result,  both GlassFish and Payara Platform follow similar specifications, ensuring a smooth migration while boosting your application’s performance.
