JBoss Enterprise Application Platform gets DevOps friendly

Written by 

The latest version of Red Hat's Java EE application platform has new features and more flexible subscriptions to help organisations accelerate their DevOps initiatives in traditional on-premise and PaaS environments, including OpenShift by Red Hat


Red Hat has released the latest version of its JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) 6.4 and has introduced expanded subscribe benefits aimed at DevOps deploying their Java applications in hybrid cloud environments. 

Gartner expects strong growth opportunities for DevOps toolsets, with the total for DevOps tools reaching $2.3 billion in 2015, up 21.1% from $1.9 billion in 2014. By 2016, DevOps will evolve from a niche strategy employed by large cloud providers to a mainstream strategy employed by 25% of Global 2000 organisations.

To enable this growing desire from DevOps for better tools the new version JBoss EAP now supports a broad range of third-party frameworks, operating systems, databases, security, and identity systems to make integration into existing infrastructure easier. In addition, new subscription flexibility expands support for users deploying JBoss EAP across multiple environments based on their individual needs and business requirements, including on-premise, in a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment, or in hybrid cloud scenarios.

 Additional enhancements introduced in JBoss EAP 6.4 include:

  • Support for Java 8 applications, as well as for the Java API WebSockets implementation protocol, JSR 356, enabling developers to build real-time, rich client and mobile applications with reduced overhead and complexity.
  • Expanded JBoss EAP console and Red Hat Customer Portal integration, giving users direct access to the Red Hat Customer Portal, including the ability to receive support, open and manage tickets, and access the knowledge base.
  • New console functionality with an updated user interface enabling users to view log files more easily and manage security configuration for applications.
  • Kerberos authorisation for greater application security.

Additionally JBoss EAP deployed on OpenShift provides developers with a fully certified Java EE 6 container and the tools needed to build, run, and manage a wide range of Java applications, and Redhat claims this enables users to “build enterprise-grade Java applications in a streamlined PaaS environment more quickly.”

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