Team Payara Chooses the Bumblebee Conservation Trust as its Charity of the Year

Payara Services are proud to announce that we’ve chosen the Bumblebee Conservation Trust as our Payara Charity of the Year!

About the Bumblebee Conservation Trust

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established because of serious concerns over declining numbers of bumblebees. These insects are not only well-loved but also valued for the way they pollinate crops and wildflowers.

The charity aims to enhance understanding of the work these industrious insects do, why they are declining in numbers and how a diverse range of people can help. They also work to increase the quality and quantity of bumblebee habitats.

February Release Overview & MicroProfile 4.0

Join Payara engineers for an informative and practical webinar on the recent updates and enhancements to the Payara Platform in the latest release (Payara Platform February Release).

Every month, we answer questions on the most recent release and also discuss a key theme –  this month, it’s MicroProfile 4.0, now fully supported in the Payara Platform Community Edition. We have covered what you can expect from the latest specifications in a blog, but please use this opportunity to ask any questions you might have about MicroProfile and its new iteration.

Full support for MicroProfile 4.0 follows us announcing we are part of the MicroProfile Working Group.   The MicroProfile project was born as a community initiative to optimise Enterprise Java with a microservices standard platform, and the Eclipse Foundation‘s MicroProfile Working Group proposes and gain approval for new common APIs and functionality – in turn drawing on the knowledge of a wide variety of different vendors. As one of the contributors, Payara engineers will shape and drive the future of the MicroProfile specifications.

Instagram for B2B Marketeers

In September, Instagram celebrated its 10-year anniversary. This makes it the youngest of the big social media giants (Twitter is 14, YouTube 15, and LinkedIn 18), but it also stands out for other reasons.

Firstly, it focuses on images and visual content over and above the written word. Secondly, its user base is much younger, with 95% of users under 35 years old. Compare this to LinkedIn, where only 77% of the user base is under 35. 

This inevitably has huge repercussions for how we use the platform as marketeers.

Payara & the Eclipse Foundation

The Eclipse Foundation provides an environment for Open Source collaboration and innovation. It is home to more than 375 projects – including runtimes, tools and frameworks. Oracle donated Java EE and related GlassFish technologies to the Eclipse Foundation in 2017. With Payara Platform based on the former Oracle GlassFish Server software, our Founder and Technical Director Steve Millidge knew it made sense to join the Foundation to advance Jakarta EE, the successor to Java EE.

This case study, created by the Eclipse Foundation with our input, provides more details on our membership and how it advances our work – largely in Steve’s own words.
