for a wildfly application that mostly uses EE standard APIs (EJB, JMS, etc). can payara micro be used? I want to go to something lighter so I am not sure payara enterprise will help me achieve what I want and I already use microprofile in my wildfly app (its a big ear with many wars, ejb jars, etc inside)
so I would like to port as ‘as is’ and painless as possible but go light.
Yes, Payara Micro should be able to run your application. You can move your application(s) to a directory and call java -jar payara-micro.jar --deploydir /my/dir.
Speaking about microprofile (the standard), one of the advantages of the full server is its possibility to change the MP settings on-the-fly, directly on the server using admin GUI. MP Config is immediately reflected.
