Comments and Reviews
Said about Payara Server as an alternative
Payara Server was derived from GlassFish, so they share a lot of the same features. However, Payara Server continues to receive frequent updates, full support, bug fixes, etc for community users and support customers.
Payara Server has everything that GlassFish has plus some more modern features. They share a lot of common code so they mostly work in the same way, meaning you can switch between them without needing to learn new things first.
It's actively maintained.
