Red Hat Releases JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 8
February 06, 2024

Red Hat announced the general availability of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) 8.

JBoss EAP 8 delivers security enhancements, improved cloud workflow tools, and compatibility with Jakarta EE 10, contributing to streamlined application modernization for customers and continued support for enterprise Java application development.

JBoss EAP is a solution for organizations seeking to build, run, deploy, and manage Jakarta® EE (previously Java EE) applications in a variety of environments, including on-premise, virtual environments, and across private, public, and hybrid clouds.

Designed for the flexibility of the open hybrid cloud, JBoss EAP features a modular architecture that starts services only as they are required. The low memory footprint and fast startup times make JBoss EAP an ideal solution for all types of environments where efficient resource utilization is a priority, such as Red Hat OpenShift. JBoss EAP 8 builds on the lightweight, cloud-native capabilities of Red Hat JBoss EAP 7 to improve developer productivity, reduce operational overhead, and ease the path towards modernization. Some of the advancements customers can take advantage of in the latest version include:

- Jakarta EE 10 support enables customers to benefit from the functionality provided by current versions of the Jakarta EE APIs. With this release, companies can extend the life cycle of their enterprise Java applications.

- Improved provisioning tools empower developers and operations teams to manage and optimize the deployment of their Jakarta EE applications on all deployment targets, including bare metal, virtual machines, cloud, and Red Hat OpenShift.

- Security enhancements introduce native support for OpenID Connect and remove legacy security frameworks, making it easier to integrate JBoss EAP with OpenID Connect compliant platforms.

Red Hat JBoss EAP 8 is now generally available.
