On Tuesday January 8, our awesome JBoss development team released JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.3. Kudos to the entire team for another great effort!

JBoss EAP 4.3 was a customer-driven release. The top two requests from our JBoss EAP 4.2 customers were to upgrade our messaging and web services technologies, and the team delivered. JBoss Messaging provides a high-performance messaging infrastructure and is a fantastic upgrade over the prior JBossMQ component. While JBossMQ has served us well over the past few years, JBoss Messaging is now the messaging architecture for JBoss EAP 4.3, 5.0 and beyond. JBoss Web Services now fully supports JAX-WS which will really satisfy many of our customers. This also further rounds out our Java EE 5 capabilities.

JBoss EAP 4.3 includes JBoss AS, Hibernate, JBoss Seam and many other components; more details can be found here.

JBoss EAP 4.3 has been tested with many different operating systems and databases; more details can be found here.

Documentation and Release Notes can be found here.

For existing customers, the new release is available on both the JBoss Customer Support Portal and Red Hat Network.

Subscriptions for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform are immediately available directly from Red Hat, on the Red Hat Store or from Red Hat resellers. For more information, visit here.
