Regardless of where the root cause of the problem is located, either in Payara Server source code or application source code, the Support Team helped to find a solution and resolve the issue. BMW Group has found that all major blocking issues have been resolved and newly found bugs are dealt with appropriately.
iTAC Software is happy with the level of commercial support Payara has provided to our company since 2015. All tickets raised were fast resolved, we are certainly pleased with the Payara developers' team reaction time.
Since our staff is Japanese, a Japanese speaking support engineer who is popular in Japan for handling GlassFish for 5-10 years was answering our queries, it made communication, understanding and resolution easier and faster. Code samples/demos which gave us knowledge on best practices of usage and implementation. Supportive customer relation team facilitated contract process and on-boarding a lot easier.
