In the realm of web architecture, reverse proxies play a critical role in improving security, manageability, and performance of deployment applications and services. Serving as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from servers, reverse proxies can provide additional layers of security defence, handle load balancing, manage SSL provisioning and termination, and cache static content, thereby enhancing the overall efficiency and reliability of web applications served by specialised servers like Payara.
In this guide, we take a look at using Payara Server behind two popular reverse proxy servers – Nginx and Traefik. We start off with a brief discussion of what a reverse proxy is, and then move to see
the various configuration options for using the two reverse proxy servers with a very typical Payara Server running both standalone and in Docker.
