HTTP Service Overview

HTTP in Payara Server is composed of several configuration layers:

  • Transport. The default transport is tcp.

  • An HTTP protocol. One of the default protocols is http-listener-1 (which has the same name as the http-listener-1 network listener).

  • A network listener. One of the default listeners is http-listener-1.

  • A virtual server. The default virtual server is server.

The configuration for each of these objects can be found in their respective pages:
