Based on the first Java EE server embedded in a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 was created by Red Hat® with the cloud in mind. We understand what it takes to deliver enterprise capabilities everywhere.
Updated modular archecture
Based on a services-driven set of components, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 simplifies how applications are deployed into different environments.
With JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6, your enterprise can programmatically manage applications, automate these processes as you build, or integrate with your own management tools. And work seamlessly in your private cloud. It also provides domain management, which helps administrators manage multiple servers as one and support rolling deployments within the domain.

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 has been optimized to work with both multicore and virtualized environments. This helps Red Hat provide an extremely low memory footprint and blazingly fast startup times. And we#39;ve focused more on resource usage and port management, simplifying the effort needed to deploy into virtualized environments.
JBoss has always been about about making developers more productive so they can deliver their applications more quickly. JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 introduces new features that continue to extend that leadership.
Support for Java EE 6 and other popular frameworks
As a major contributor to Java EE, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform includes support for Java EE 6, which is a major step forward in developer productivity. It also supports a wide range of Java Virtual Machine (JVM)-based frameworks, including Spring, Struts, and GWT.
Upgraded JBoss components
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform includes many new and upgraded components to enhance the developer experience, including:
- New versions of JBoss Hibernate®.
- New components, like Arquillian, a powerful platform that simplifies integration testing for Java middleware.
Support for modern development tooling
JBoss has also enhanced its support for other open source development tools, like Maven and Hudson.
Performance-tuned from the start
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is a Java EE 6 application server platform that is performance-tuned from the start for highly transactional applications in mission-critical environments. You get all the features you need to effectively and efficiently build, run, and manage your enterprise applications.
Built-in enterprise features
Take advantage of integrated clustering and high-availability features for outstanding application performance. JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is a proven foundation for highly scalable Java applications and services, with built-in features for:
- Intelligent load balancing

Flexible, future-friendly subscription model
What good is a cloud-ready application server if it requires a costly licensing migration to reap its value? The Red Hat subscription model not only takes up-front licensing out of the equation, it also gives you more flexibility as your architecture changes.
Want to deploy in a public cloud like Amazon? No problem. Want to implement virtualization or run on a portion of your hardware architecture? We can do that. It#39;s all part of the subscription model.

Best return on investment and support
It#39;s not just less expensive, it#39;s better. Independent studies show that JBoss middleware provides the greatest ROI in the industry. A recent IDC report stated that over a 3-year period, companies deploying JBoss Enterprise Application Platform generated an ROI of 569% and paid back their initial investment in less than 6 months after the platform was fully deployed.
Additionally, JBoss provides better customer support than traditional proprietary middleware vendors. In surveys conducted by Velociti Partners for 5 years running, JBoss middleware has consistently beat WebSphere and WebLogic middleware on customer support satisfaction.
