Red Hat moves JBoss to the cloud with release of new JBoss EAP 7

After the just ended Red Hat Summit that took place in San Francisco, the firm announced that they were planning on releasing the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7. The company also plans to introduce the JBoss Core Services Collection so as to help developers create the JBoss enterprise applications with ease.

JBoss is one of the leading Java Enterprise Edition (EE) 7 open sourced compliant application server. The servers also include the widely distributed and used Java EE 7 APIs. This middleware is created in a way that would help the enterprises to migrate their Java server applications from the servers they are being held on to the cloud system with lightweight, and highly modular cloud-native platform.

The JBoss EAP 7 has also been created to work best with cloud environments. It is specifically meant to be used with the Red Hat OpenShift, which is the Red Hat Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud. Red Hat promises its customers that through the OpenShift platform, the new JBoss platform will include benefits of containers, load balancing, elastic scaling, health monitoring. It will also include the ability to distribute a container straight from the IDE. When the two services are put together, developers will now be able to work more efficiently and convenient without any problems.

The JBoss EAP and the OpenShift also bring with it the architecturally efficient DevOps environment. The middleware stack for JBoss will also come with its personal integrated development environment, the JBoss Developer Studio. Any members of the JBoss or Red Hat Developer communities will be able to use these services at no cost at all and also be able to deploy some applications either on-premise or in the cloud. The program also supports other various Web and JavaScript frameworks that developers use including the Arquillan, Maven, and Jenkins.

The middleware Vice President and general manager at Red Hat, Mike Piech said that organizations and corporations had the chance to choose how and when they changed to architecture and programming platforms. He said the company embraced the whole point of freedom, and with the new JBoss EAP 7, they were addressing the enterprise IT needs and also the needs of developers who were balanced.

The company also announced that they would release the JBoss Core Services Collection. This in turn gives a common foundation which can be used for building blocks for the enterprise applications. These applications include the Web single sign on, the HTTP load balancing, proxying, and the applications and services management and the monitoring capabilities inclusive.
