Red Hat launches JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.4
Latest version aimed at helping to ‘accelerate’ DevOps initiatives
Red Hat this week announced JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) 6.4 and introduced more perks for subscribers deploying Java applications in hybrid cloud environments.
JBoss EAP supports a range of third-party frameworks, operating systems, databases, security, and identity systems for infrastructure integration. New subscription options broaden support for users deploying JBoss EAP across multiple environments, including on-premise, in a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment, or in hybrid cloud scenarios.
Additions to v6.4 include support for Java 8 applications and Java API WebSockets protocol; an expanded JBoss EAP console and Red Hat Customer Portal integration; new console functionality with an updated user interface; and Kerberos authorisation.
"We see enterprise IT moving on a clear path toward implementing initiatives such as DevOps methodologies and two-track IT," said Mike Piech, general manager, Middleware, Red Hat. "The inherent flexibility of JBoss EAP allows it to act as a versatile foundation on which organisations can build both sides of their IT organisation, prioritising both agility and stability, and combat inefficiencies as they bring products to market by fostering greater collaboration between the development and operations teams."
