  • Payara Micro 5によるUber JARの作成 18 May 2021

    Payara Microでは、Webアプリケーションを自己完結型で簡単に実行することができます。2016年5月のPayara Serverリリースからは、WARファイルの内容とPayara Microを構成するクラスやリソースを束ねる “Uber JAR” を作成する簡単な方法があります。 この “Uber” Jarは、Dockerコンテナ内でアプリケーションを実行するための最良の方法ではないことに注意してください。アプリケーションに小さなコード変更を加えるたびに、バイナリ全体のアップデートが必要になるためです。より良い方法は、Payara Microインスタンスを起動して、インストールが必要なアプリケーションを指定することです。詳細については Payara Micro Docker Image documentation をご覧ください。 (最終更新日 2021/04/06)
