Open Source Projects:

JavaEE Applications Supercharged – Using JCache with Payara


In this webinar

In light of recent events in the world of Java EE, Payara was created to provide support for businesses using GlassFish in production and deliver a new, open source platform built on the foundations of GlassFish. With this came a promise that the engineers behind Payara would provide quarterly releases with bug fixes and enhancements – no delays, no excuses.

Payara 4.1.151 was released at the end of January and one of the new enhancements is Hazelcast® session persistence. Due to some clustering and high availability issues in GlassFish 4.1 and low activity on the Shoal development repo, engineers have implemented Hazelcast into the core of Payara to provide robust session clustering. Payara’s latest Jenkins builds now have Hazelcast built in, disabled by default so there’s no installation required. Technical Director and Founder of Payara, Steve Millidge teamed up with Hazelcast to demonstrate the new feature in action.

We’ll cover these topics:

  • JSR107 support in Payara via embedded Hazelcast
  • Simple introduction to api
  • Demo
  • Live Q&A
