Jboss and its versions


JBoss Application Server (or JBoss AS) is a free software/open-source Java EE-based application server. Because it is Java-based, the JBoss application server operates cross-platform: usable on any operating system that Java supports. JBoss AS was developed by JBoss, now a division of Red Hat.


JBoss AS 4.0, a Java EE 1.4 application server, features an embedded Apache Tomcat 5.5 servlet container. It supports any Java Virtual Machine between versions 1.4 and 1.6.

JBoss AS 4.2 also functions as a Java EE 1.4 application server, but deploys Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 by default. It requires the Java Development Kit version 5. Tomcat 5.5 comes bundled with it.

JBoss AS 5.1, released as of 2009, operates as a Java EE 5 application server. It is a minor update of the major release JBoss AS 5.0

Boss AS 6.0,[3] the current stable release and an unofficial implementation of Java EE 6, was released on December 28, 2010.
