JBoss

JBoss Application Server is a J2EE certified platform for developing and deploying enterprise Java applications, Web applications, and Portals. JBoss Application Server provides the full range of J2EE 1.4 features as well as extended enterprise services including clustering, caching, and persistence.

JBoss Application Server includes support for Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) 3.0 which is designed to dramatically simplify the enterprise Java programming model.

JBoss is the number one most widely used Java application server on the market. Hundreds of professional open source developers have contributed to the JBoss Application Server. In fact all JBoss employed contributors to the JBoss Application Server were hired from the community and each of them contributed to an open source project in one way or another.

  • Management API
  • OSGi framework
  • RMI-IIOP (JacORB, contraction of Java and CORBA)
  • SOAP with Attachments API for Java (SAAJ)
  • Teiid data virtualization system
  • JBoss EJB3 included with JBoss 5 provides the implementation of the latest revision of the Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) specification. EJB 3.0 is a deep overhaul and simplification of the EJB specification. EJB 3.0's goals are to simplify development, facilitate a test driven approach, and focus more on writing plain old java objects (POJOs) rather than coding against complex EJB APIs
  • JBoss Messaging is a high performance JMS provider in the JBoss Enterprise Middleware Stack (JEMS), included with JBoss 5 as the default messaging provider. It is also the backbone of the JBoss ESB infrastructure. JBoss Messaging is a complete rewrite of JBossMQ, which is the default JMS provider for the JBoss AS 4.x series
  • JBossCache 2.0 that comes in two flavors. A traditional tree-structured node-based cache and a PojoCache, an in-memory, transactional, and replicated cache system that allows users to operate on simple POJOs transparently without active user management of either replication or persistency aspects
  • JBossWS 2 is the web services stack for JBoss 5 providing Java EE compatible web services, JAXWS-2.0
  • JBoss Transactions is the default transaction manager for JBoss 5. JBoss Transactions is founded on industry proven technology and 18 year history as a leader in distributed transactions
  • JBoss Web is the Web container in JBoss 5, an implementation based on Apache Tomcat that includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) and Tomcat native technologies to achieve scalability and performance characteristics that match and exceed the Apache Http server
