Red Hat Updates the Hybrid Cloud Capabilities to Its Java Based JBoss EAP 7 Platform
Red Hat has announced the general availability of the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7 (JBoss EAP), an open source Java EE 7 compliant application server that offers a lightweight, modular, cloud-native platform. The company also launched JBoss Core Services Collection, a set of technologies that offer common and fundamental application components. 

JBoss EAP 7 combines Java EE 7 APIs with technologies supporting hybrid cloud applications and DevOps development practices, such as Red Hat’s integrated development environment (IDE), JBoss Developer Studio as well as JenkinsArquillian, Apache Maven, and support for a number of Web and JavaScript frameworks. The platforms lightweight nature and small footprint make JBoss EAP 7 a choice suitable for enterprises building either traditional applications or more modular, microservices-style applications.

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. In addition, JBoss EAP with OpenShift contributes to a more architecturally efficient DevOps environment since overlapping features are no longer needed. 

JBoss Core Services Collection provides common foundational building blocks for enterprise applications, such as Web single sign-on, HTTP load balancing, and proxying, as well as management and monitoring capabilities for applications and services. It is included as part of a Red Hat JBoss Middleware subscription at no additional charge.

Technologies currently receiving full support entitlements in the JBoss Core Services Collection include Red Hat JBoss Operations Network, which provides a centralized management point for all Red Hat JBoss Middleware products, Apache HTTP server, connectors for IIS and iPlanet web servers, Apache Commons Jsvc, and a single sign-on server based on the JBoss Keycloak project.
