Overall Satisfaction with Payara Server

- Initially we were using Glassfish then we migrated to Payara community edition.
- We have hosted the application on payara prod and used it by our 200+ customers.
- Our application products are used by Universities and colleges in the USA.
- Even we are using Micro Payara for a few of our small size applications.
- It has very good support and addresses the outstanding issues.
- It has very good features and up-to-date technology stack updates.


  • Automatic Clustering
  • Admin console UI (user friendly to access the Payara admin console).
  • Micro Payara helps in addressing the micro service architecture.
  • Regular updates include the technology stack updates (Jakarta, other security issues).


  • Issues that are logged in Payara GitHub forum need to address on time, but it keeps on postponing fixing those issues.
  • Can host multiple application on single VM.
  • Helps managed service team reduces their time on installation and up-gradation ( upgrading it to a new Payara server is very simple).
  • We can opt for Payara or Micro Payara based on the application size.
- As I said before, Payara has full Jakarta compliance and provide up-to-date technology stack upgrade.
- Easy to install and upgrade.
- Very less configuration setting.
- Default ready-to-use production domain is available, which can be spun up to use in production.
