JBoss AS 7 in Fedora Marketing Flyer

This is the brainstorming area for text for a flyer focused on AS 7 in F17.

JBoss AS 7 in Fedora

Fedora 17 provides a robust Java application development environment and JBoss AS 7, one of the most popular Java application servers.

JBoss AS 7 is a fast, lightweight open source application server. Fedora 17 currently supports the web profile of AS 7 and plans to implement the full profile soon.

JBoss AS 7

Benefits of AS7 on Fedora 1. Blazing fast start up times, curtesy of a highly optimized boot process and concurrent service loading. 2. Classloading done right. AS 7 provide trues application isolation. It hides server implementation classes from the application and only loads the classes your application needs. Modules, packaged as collections of classes, are peers that remain isolated unless explicitly defined as a dependency of another module. Visibility rules have sensible defaults, yet can be customized. 3. Lightweight and scalable due to aggressive menory management. 4. User-focused, centralized configuration that unifies the application servers management. 5. Test your applications with ease. AS 7 is integrated with Arquillian. Arquillian, a component model for integration tests that execute inside the real runtime environment, enables you to write tests for just about any use case your application encounters.

By packaging JBoss AS 7, Fedora now provides one of the most popular Java application servers. Fedora also provides one of the most robust application development environments.

Strict Compliance

JBoss has always been committed to application portability to prevent vendor lock-in. That's why we've made AS 7 Java EE 6 Full Profile certified. But we didn't stop there!

AS 7 boasts an internal test suite based on Arquillian that achieves even more strict compliance to the portability expectations of our community of users.

As long as your application is Java EE compliant, you should expect it to run on AS 7. If you can't, it may be an indication that your application has portability problems.

Get started with AS 7 in Fedora

In the terminal, install JBoss AS 7 using yum sudo yum install jboss-as Start the JBoss AS 7 service sudo service jboss-as service
