After more than two years of development and one year after the release of the first community version, yesterday the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.0.0 (EAP6) was published at the Red Hat customer portal. It is built around the new blazingly fast und thoroughly modular JBoss application server 7. It supports the full Java EE 6 profile and it is the first EAP version that provides a downloadable Maven repository. By adding it to your enterprise repository you can enjoy the same benefits for the development as with the community version.
The EAP 6.0.0 is built from the 7.1.2 development branch of the JBoss application server. The development of the community version switched to the 7.2.0 branch. Thus, the EAP will be continuously hardened for enterprise production environments whereas the community version will stay the focus for innovation.
The EAP 6.0.0 is available with a subscription from Red Hat. The subscription includes enterprise-class support SLAs, guaranteed patches, updates, hot-fixes, and legal assurance.
You can download a 30-days evaluation version of the EAP 6.0.0 from the Red Hat customer portal.
