JBoss EAP 6.4 Now Available

Build APIs from SQL and NoSQL or Salesforce data sources in seconds. Read the Creating REST APIs white paper, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.4 is now released and includes some useful news. For the complete list of new Features and fixed bugs, see the release note[1]

The new features I found most interesting are:

Support for Java 8 and newer versions of DBMS 

Finally we can use Lamda expressions in JBoss EAP. :-)

JBoss EAP now support Oracle Java Platform, Standard Edition 1.8 (JDK 8) and IBM JDK 8. New DBMS supported are: 

  • Enterprise DB Postgres Plus Advanced Server 9.3
  • MySQL 5.7
  • IBM DB2 10.5
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2014
  • PostgreSql 9.3

See the supported configuration page[2] for a complete list of supported JVMs and DBMS.

WebSockets 1.0 support

The WebSocket 1.0 protocol provides two way communication between web clients and servers. Communications between clients and the server are event-based, allowing for faster processing and smaller bandwidth compared with polling-based methods. See the Development Guide[3] for more details how to create WebSocket applications.

Security Improvements

Nothing mayor, but many small useful improvements like being able to use Kerberos auto for remoting and selected data sources.

Hibernate Search included as a new feature

Hibernate Search enables indexing of the JPA model making the data model searchable. Hibernate Search has been available in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform via the Web Framework Kit, but is now a standard component of JBoss EAP, which enhances the support life cycle. 

Ability to read boot errors from the management APIs

A useful feature if you want a start script or server verifying that there are not boot error[4].

Display of server logs in the admin console


No comments needed.
