JBoss AS 7 in Fedora Marketing Flyer

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

Where did the Getting Started section go?
The text on this page is currently being used to produce a 5x7 postcard. The getting started commands were moved to a new wikipage and will soon be linked to other appropriate pages. Please continue to add to and edit the Getting Started with JBoss AS 7 page.

Java and JBoss AS 7 on Fedora

Fedora 17 provides a comprehensive Java application development suite featuring Java 7, JBoss Application Server (AS) 7, Eclipse 4, Apache Maven 3, Ant, Groovy and Thermostat.

JBoss AS 7 is a fast and lightweight Java EE 6 application server and OSGi runtime. JBoss AS is the most widely adopted open source Java EE implementation.

  • Composed of best of breed open source components, including Hibernate, Infinispan, JGroups, JBoss Modules and Weld.
  • Blazing fast start up attributed to a highly optimized boot process, concurrent classloading and concurrent service coordinator.
  • Classloading done right. Showcases a preview of Java modularity to attain true application isolation. Hides server implementation classes from the application and only loads classes your application needs.
  • Lightweight and scalable as a result of an aggressive memory management policy.
  • User-focused, centralized administration. Manage a multi-server topology (domain mode) or an independent, development server (standalone mode) from a single control point.
  • Thoroughly tested with Arquillian, a component model for creating robust tests that execute inside the server runtime.
  • Java EE 6 (Web and Full Profile) and OSGi compliant (Fedora packages not yet certified)

New in Fedora 17

  • Java 7 runtime (JRE) and development tools (JDK) provided by OpenJDK 1.7.0, the open-source reference implementation of Java
  • JBoss Application Server (Web Profile minus JPA 2, standalone mode only) makes its debut as an official Fedora package (jboss-as)
  • Add-ons to the Web Profile such as the Java Messaging Service (JMS) provided by HornetQ
  • A systemd system service (jboss-as) to control a standalone mode instance of JBoss AS
  • A commandline interface (jboss-cli) to the JBoss AS management console
  • A script (jboss-add-user) to create management and application users for JBoss AS
  • A script (jboss-as-cp) to create a unique instance (i.e., server configuration) of JBoss AS in userspace
  • JBoss AS container adapters and a JMX-based test protocol for the Arquillian testing platform (in testing)
  • Apache Maven 3 (mvn), with optional resolution of system jar files (mvn-local), and an integration with rpmbuild (mvn-rpmbuild)
  • Early release of the Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) Platform and Java IDE
  • Thermostat monitoring and instrumentation tool for the Hotspot JVM, with support for monitoring multiple JVMs on multiple hosts
  • Additional JBoss development tools being packaged for the GSoC project to create a Fedora JBoss Spin
  • Groovy (added in Fedora 16)
