Red Hat JBoss EAP 7 re­leased to sup­port hy­brid cloud ap­pli­ca­tions

OpenSource For You - - FOSS BYTES -

Red Hat an­nounced the re­lease of its JBoss En­ter­prise Ap­pli­ca­tion Plat­form 7 at the Red Hat Sum­mit 2016 in San Fran­cisco. The new plat­form, known as Red Hat JBoss EAP 7, is “…to bridge cur­rent and fu­ture de­vel­op­ment par­a­digms” and to sup­port hy­brid cloud ap­pli­ca­tions through a set of new tech­nolo­gies.

The orig­i­nal Red Hat JBoss EAP was de­signed to bring open source closer to the en­ter­prise world. Its new ver­sion comes with the same fo­cus but uses some new tech­nolo­gies to sup­port DevOps de­vel­op­ment prac­tices. The plat­form now has the widely de­ployed Java EE APIs, as well as Red Hat’s JBoss De­vel­oper Studio and JBoss Core Ser­vices Col­lec­tion.

“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,” said Mike Piech, VP and GM of mid­dle­ware, Red Hat.

JBoss EAP 7 has JBoss Core Ser­vices Col­lec­tion that pro­vides devel­op­ers with some common foun­da­tional build­ing blocks to de­velop new en­ter­prise ap­pli­ca­tions. Ad­di­tion­ally, there are man­age­ment and mon­i­tor­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties for ex­ist­ing ap­pli­ca­tions and ser­vices. The Col­lec­tion pack­age in­cludes Red Hat JBoss Op­er­a­tions Net­work, Apache HTTP server and a sign-on server.

Red Hat con­sid­ers its JBoss EAP 7 as a ‘new mile­stone’ that would help the open source so­lu­tions provider ex­tend its present prod­uct port­fo­lio and at­tract more part­ners. Like­wise, the plat­form ad­vances the ex­ist­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with new ap­pli­ca­tion ap­proaches like con­tain­ers and mi­croser­vice ar­chi­tec­tures.
