Enterprise Java is part to the latest open source Jakarta EE platform specification

IBM's Red Hat division is ushering in a new era for its flagship JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) with a comprehensive array of updates aimed at bolstering its capabilities in the development, deployment, and management of enterprise Java applications. With the release of JBoss EAP 8, Red Hat makes a significant stride by becoming the first enterprise Java platform provider to fully embrace the Jakarta EE 10 specification. Jakarta EE, the open-source successor to various incarnations of Java enterprise platforms such as J2EE and Java EE, represents a watershed moment in the evolution of Java-based enterprise development. The transition to Jakarta EE gained momentum in 2019 when governance of the platform was transitioned from Oracle to the Eclipse Foundation.

Despite the absence of Jakarta EE 9 support in previous iterations, Red Hat's decision to integrate Jakarta EE 10 support in JBoss EAP 8 underscores its commitment to enabling enterprises to modernize their legacy Java applications while maximizing the value of their existing investments. In addition to its robust support for Jakarta EE 10, JBoss EAP 8 introduces a suite of enhanced provisioning tools designed to streamline the management and optimization of Jakarta EE application deployments across diverse environments. Overall, the release of JBoss EAP 8 represents a significant milestone in Red Hat's ongoing efforts to empower enterprises with the tools and technologies needed to thrive in today's rapidly evolving digital landscape.
