Red Hat Offers Early Access to Its PaaS Runtime Engine

The application server is the runtime engine for the company’s Platform-as-a-Service widgetry

Red Hat is opening early access to JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6, which won't be generally available until the beginning of next year.

The application server is the runtime engine for the company's Platform-as-a-Service widgetry. It's also supposed to tickle the adoption of Java EE 6, which Red Hat suggests is now lighter weight, modular and productive than Java used to be.

Red Hat's middleware boss Craig Muzilla called Application Platform 6 a reflection of "our vision of the future of Java application platforms for both traditional and cloud-based environments."

It's supposed to make it easier to tune and size the application server to fit the workload, whether in a physical, virtualized or cloud deployment, and introduces new capabilities such as a task-based management framework designed to be a foundation for large-scale automation for public and private cloud deployments, with significant reduction in memory consumption, startup and deployment times for new small footprint deployments.
