Red Hat, leading provider of open source solutions, announced the general availability of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7 (JBoss EAP), an 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 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.
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.
