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, Apache Ant 1.8, Groovy 1.8, Scala 2.9, Clojure 1.4, JRuby 1.6 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)
