Red Hat

Red Hat announces the general availability of its leading open source Java EE 7 compliant application server – Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7 (JBoss EAP) and introduced JBoss Core Services Collection, a set of technologies that provide customers with common and fundamental application components.

As developers already helming towards emerging architectures and programming paradigms requiring lightweight, highly modular, cloud-native platform, the JBoss EAP 7, aims to help enterprises use and extend their existing application investments.

JBoss EAP 7 is combines the widely deployed Java EE 7 APIs with the latest technologies supporting DevOps development practices, such as Red Hat’s acclaimed 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.

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.

On the other hand, the JBoss Core Services Collection is touted to provide 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.

Technologies currently receiving full support entitlements in JBoss Core Services Collection include Red Hat JBoss Operations Network, which provides a centralized management point for all Red Hat JBoss Middleware products, Apache HTTP server, connectors for IIS and iPlanet web servers, Apache Commons Jsvc, and a single sign-on server based on the JBoss Keycloak project.

Commenting on the development, Mike Piech, vice president and general manager, Middleware, Red Hat said, “Organizations should be able to choose when and how they move to new architectures and programming paradigms. This freedom is a hallmark of open source, and something we embrace at Red Hat. With JBoss EAP 7, we are addressing the needs of both enterprise IT and developers with a balanced vision designed to bridge the reality of building and maintaining a business today with the aspiration of IT innovation tomorrow.”
