RedHat has made the public release of JBoss 7.2, that has complete support for EE 8 specs. Well-known enhancements are the latest Servlet 4.0 spec, which puts privileges for cross-browser HTTP/2 linkages, Java microservices, and the Eclipse MicroProfile framework.

Programmers who utilize microservices in JBoss can also take an opportunity of the Open Tracing API, presently in initial stages of innovation, which aids to help log details among microservices.

“Through EE Microservices, programmers only concentrate on industry logic.”

            Told by Adam Bien, author of Real World Java EE Patterns.

There is an evident distinction between analysis and infrastructure. By means of MicroProfile along with Java EE 8 you get functionalities such as disseminated tracing, analytics, open API, modification and even elasticity lacking the presence of third-party libraries.”

JBoss is among various EE 8 licensed application servers that are on hand. Its features guarantee a sense of connection among servers, which lets programmers concentrate on creating pieces of software to work that has no lock-in with the seller. Some EE 8 servers comprise IBM WebSpherePayara, WildFly, and etc.

Java EE 8 specs have a capacity of more than just web applications and WAR files.


Not like  Apache Tomcat, app servers possess assimilation for a lot of services such as JMS and MQs. A lot of app servers also propose a noncomplex “web profile” to take action as a tinier servlet container.

This release came in when Java EE is transferring to its latest name, Jakarta EE, with the help of Eclipse Foundation. Java EE is infrequently also recognized by its previous name, J2EE, which was altered 13 years ago.

This only proves that Redhat is continuing to evolve throughout the years to come, as it helps developers in making their jobs easier.  JBoss 7.2 is one of the most remarkable developments that Redhat have provided us.

It is also with this new released JBoss 7.2, it only proves that Redhat is aiming to provide better services to produce a lot more spectacular applications.

With these developments, we are seeing that the future is bright for Java developers and the future of computing. In the last few years, this is probably the greatest breakthrough that we have seen.

Although non-developers will not appreciate it, IT guys know the true importance of this update and they are really thankful that it is finally released. All we can say is, at last, the time has come!
