A little over a month after we made the alpha version available, the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7 Beta - Early Access was released last Friday.
JBoss EAP 7 is a significant release in every respect; the last major EAP release (EAP 6.0) was back in June 2012 and after 4 minor feature releases and numerous patch releases, EAP 6 is now just 8 months away from entering its long-term maintenance phase. While EAP 6 will be fully supported for many years to come – all new development and new features will target EAP 7 and beyond.
Developers can download JBoss EAP7 with a jboss.org account. They also need to accept the terms and conditions of the JBoss Developer Program which provides $0 subscriptions for development use only. Find out more about the JBoss Developer Program.
