Payara Micro Instance Names

Payara Micro instances are automatically assigned a name on boot. These names are generated from a dictionary of adjectives and fish names as adjective-fish. For example: Magnanimous-Payara, Disgruntled-Goldfish, and Bamboozled-Tetra.

Setting a Custom Instance Name

Instance names can be overridden with the --name command-line argument on start-up. Manually entered instances names are non-unique.

As an example, see below:

java -jar payara-micro.jar --name MicroInstance1
