AS 5.0.0: we are done. Next. December 5, 2008Posted by Sacha in JBoss.
We have been waiting for that day for a long time. Too long certainly. But here we are, the community version of JBoss.org AS 5.0 just got released.
Our foundations are now ready to absorb the changes the Java landscape will go through in the next 5 years. We have the strongest API-agnostic implementation of the core middleware services – our DNA (messaging, persistence, security, remoting, etc.). We have the most evolutive and flexible microcontainer on the market. Thanks to those two, we are able to morph our DNA to whatever API/programming model the market might move towards, and implement several of those simultaneously if needed. They are the (important) bells and whistles on top of our rock-solid and non-monolithic engine.
But make no mistake, we are not going to party long. JBoss AS 5.0.0 is just a start. We’ve already started working on the future:
- JBoss.org AS 5.x will be further refined to leverage all features of the MC. Some key services already fully leverage the MC today, but not all of them do.
- EAP 5.0, the only software actually supported by Red Hat in its commercial offering has already started its extensive productization and sanitization phases.
- In JBoss.org AS 5.0.0 you will find a new configuration: “web”. I think you’ll find it very similar to a web profile – more to come on this
Onto EE6 now, the refreshed JBoss will lead the pace. Onward,
