Red Hat® JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform

Red Hat® JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform is an application server that serves as a middleware platform and is built on open standards and compliant with the Jakarta EE and Eclipse MicroProfile specifications via JBoss Enterprise Application Platform expansion pack (JBoss EAP XP).

Jakarta EE 8 support

Red Hat JBoss EAP 7 enables easier, more agile development. The Arquillian test platform makes it easier to test and offline CLI improves the ability to automate a delivery pipeline. Graceful shutdown allows for rolling deployments.

Adaptable Resource Usage

Red Hat JBoss EAP 7 is suitable for a wide range of infrastructure and application types. It can power cloud-native microservices that use very little memory and CPU, or large, clustered applications that use terabytes of memory across thousands of cores. Regardless of your deployment architecture, JBoss EAP 7 enables you to use the full power of Jakarta EE to build modern applications.


Fully supported integration with the rest of the Red Hat ecosystem, like Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Satellite/CloudForms, makes Red Hat JBoss EAP 7 an ideal platform to use for DevOps.

Flexible deployments

Use Red Hat JBoss EAP 7 on everything from mainframes to cloud and microservices environments. The Web Management Console provides stand-alone server and domain management. The same platform can also be run as a managed instance in a cloud environment using OpenShift. JBoss EAP 7 lets you move from traditional to cloud deployments without having to rewrite applications.


Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is the leading open source platform for next-generation Java and Jakarta EE applications. It's integrated, simplified, and delivered by the leader in enterprise open source software.


The JBoss Enterprise Application Platform continuous delivery (JBoss EAP CD) release is a Technology Preview release of JBoss EAP available in the cloud only. Continuous delivery releases introduce new features ahead of the traditional JBoss EAP GA release and only available in the OpenShift image format via the Red Hat Ecosystem Catalog.


With the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform expansion pack, developers can use Eclipse MicroProfile APIs to build and deploy microservices-based applications. Eclipse MicroProfile provides enterprise Java developers with enhanced APIs and support for common microservices-based patterns for deployment, configuration, security and observability.


The JBoss EAP Operator reduces the operational steps required to deploy and manage JBoss EAP deployments. You can use the JBoss EAP operator to create, configure, and manage instances of complex stateful applications on OpenShift using Kubernetes-native APIs.

Red Hat Data Grid

Red Hat Data Grid is an in-memory, distributed, elastic NoSQL key-value datastore.
Data Grid is built from the Infinispan open-source software project and is available to deploy as an embedded library, as a standalone server, or as a containerized application on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. 
Data Grid is available to download from the Red Hat Customer Portal.


Scalable Cache Modes

Red Hat Data Grid can provide a single-node in-memory data cache or a clustered cache where entries are replicated across nodes.

Consistent Data Distribution

Red Hat Data Grid uses consistent hash algorithms to ensure that a cluster contains enough copies of cache entries to provide durability and fault tolerance while not overloading the environment. Additionally, Red Hat Data Grid uses mechanisms such as cache invalidation and expiration to remove stale data entries from the cache.


Accessing objects from local memory is much faster than accessing objects from remote data stores such as relational databases. This optimizes performance and eliminates the bottleneck that exists with application lookup processes to large single server databases.

Flexible Interaction

Red Hat Data Grid supports different protocols to provide access to cache entries from multiple endpoints, including the Hot Rod protocol and HTTP via a RESTful API.
