Red Hat launches JBoss EAP 7 and introduces JBoss Core Services Collection

by June 28, 2016 0 comments

Red Hat announced the general availability of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7 (JBoss EAP), the leading open source Java EE 7 compliant application server, and introduced JBoss Core Services Collection, a set of technologies that provide customers with common and fundamental application components. With JBoss EAP 7, Red Hat aims to help enterprises use and extend their existing application investments as they begin to transition to emerging architectures and programming paradigms that will require a lightweight, highly modular, cloud-native platform.

JBoss EAP 7 combines the widely deployed Java EE 7 APIs with the latest technologies supporting DevOps development practices, such as Red Hat’s award-winning integrated development environment (IDE), JBoss Developer Studio—which can be used at no cost by members of the JBoss or Red Hat Developer communities to build, test, and deploy applications on-premise or in the cloud—as well as Jenkins, Arquillian, Maven, and support for a number of popular Web and JavaScript frameworks. Its lightweight nature and small footprint make JBoss EAP 7 a versatile choice suitable for enterprises building either traditional applications or more modular, microservices-style applications.

JBoss EAP 7 has been optimized for cloud environments, and when deployed with Red Hat OpenShift, offers the benefits of containers, load balancing, elastic scaling, health monitoring, and the ability to deploy to a container directly from the IDE which can improve developer productivity and experience. In addition, JBoss EAP with OpenShift contributes to a more architecturally efficient DevOps environment since overlapping features are no longer needed. This DevOps efficiency can be compounded when using additional middleware components on OpenShift.

Core Services Collection
JBoss Core Services Collection provides common foundational building blocks for enterprise applications, such as Web single sign-on, HTTP load balancing, and proxying, as well as management and monitoring capabilities for applications and services. Included as part of a Red Hat JBoss Middleware subscription at no additional charge, Red Hat customers receive full online and phone support, updates, patches, and security fixes for each component version.

Availability

JBoss EAP is available for download by members of the Red Hat Developers community. Customers can get the latest updates from the Red Hat Customer Portal.
