Red Hat has announced the availability of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6. The update includes a number of features designed to promote cloud development and deployment, including an updated application architecture. It’s also been optimized for multi-core and virtualized systems, resulting in a low-memory footprint and faster start-up times. In addition, it offers more flexibility and options for management tools. Other features include increased integration with Maven, Hudson and JBoss Community projects such as Arquillian and Hibernate, as well as support for JavaEE 6, Spring, Struts and Google Web Toolkit.
Along with the new software, Red Hat is also rolling out a number of complementary services, such as JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6-specific courses and JBoss Certified Application Administrator Certification.
