JBoss app server 5.0 released

A long and winding road

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Red Hat's long-delayed final release of JBoss Application Server 5.0 for the Java Enterprise Edition 5 codebase has arrived.

Version 5.0 is a major redesign of the popular open-source application server to make it more modular and configurable. It features a micro kernel and container, support for OSGi, and REST.

A full list of features can be found on the 5.0 GA release notes.

The final release was originally due in the first half of 2007, and the first beta has been available since 2006. Although much has changed in application server market in the 3+ years of its development, Red Hat claims the apparent corporate inertia was well worth the wait.

Sacha Labourey, CTO for JBoss blogged:

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.

Labourey added JBoss is already gearing for future projects.
