Red Hat delivers JBoss EAP 7
Open source solutions vendor has also introduced JBoss Core Services Collection
Open source solutions vendor, Red Hat Inc, has announced the general availability of Red Hat JBoss enterprise application platform 7 (JBoss EAP), a Java EE 7 compliant application server.
The vendor has also introduced JBoss Core Services Collection, a set of technologies that provide customers with common and fundamental application components.
With JBoss EAP 7, the company 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.
Mike Piech, vice president and general manager, Middleware at Red Hat, said: "Organisations 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."
Piech said with JBoss EAP 7, Red Hat is 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.
JBoss EAP 7 combines the widely deployed Java EE 7 APIs with the latest technologies supporting DevOps development practices. 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.
