- JBoss Application Server (or JBoss AS) is a free software/open-source Java EE-based application server.
JBoss application server operates cross-platform: usable on any operating system that supports Java.
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 can run on numerous operating systems including many POSIX platforms (like GNU/Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X), Microsoft Windows and others, as long as a suitable JVM is present.
- 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, which had been in development for 3+ years and is built on top of a new JBoss microcontainer.
- JBoss AS 5.1 contains a preview of some elements from the Java EE 6 specification.
- JBoss AS 6.0, the current stable release and an unofficial implementation of Java EE 6, was released on December 28, 2010. Although JBoss AS 6 does support the full Java EE 6 stack.
