We migrated the backend of the product we built for our client from WebLogic to Payara Server with great success. Payara Server has a much more modern feature-set and feel, gets you up and running quicker and we saved a lot of time configuring the server compared to WebLogic. Several things that were a big hassle to configure with WebLogic worked out of the box with Payara Server, Bean Validation being a prime example of this. We are now looking to the future and planning a move towards a more microservices oriented architecture with Payara Micro in mind. I would recommend both Payara Server and Payara Micro to anybody who values consistency, stability and productivity for their application development and deployment.

Daniel Löfquist, HiQ

“In terms of support costs Payara is 60% cheaper than JBoss. And as it is Open Source there are no licensing fees! Our engineers are extremely satisfied with Payara’s performance. They started using Payara in a small scale and as things worked quickly well they have increased their Payara usage exponentially.”

International Hotel Franchise

We’ve been working with Payara Server for over a year in full production and so far, the server and support have been really good. Support is very professional and helpful. With Payara Team’s help, we found and resolved most of the issues in application code and server configuration. After looking at GlassFish 4, we considered migration to other Java EE server, until we found Payara Server. Migration from GlassFish 3 to Payara Server was quicker than anticipated. All the knowledge that we gathered from using GlassFish is still usable but now we have a new and more stable server that is regularly updated and patched. Also, new added features are helpful and improve stability and usability of the server. We would recommend Payara Server to anyone who is still on GlassFish, or looking for a new Java EE application server.
