It is with great pleasure that I announce the immediate availability of JBoss AS7.
AS7 was built from the ground up with fresh focus on modularity, memory usage, performance, start-up time, easy of configuration, and management.
AS7.0 has been certified for Java EE 6 Web Profile. Full Java EE certification is planned for the 7.1 release.
Get it now!
As far as clustering support in AS7, this is a work in progress. Here’s a breakdown of the clustering features present in AS6, and the projected availability in AS7.x:
|Distributed web sessions||√|
|mod_cluster support||√||HA singleton instrumentation|
|Clustered JPA 2nd-level cache||√|
|Session EJB failover||√|
|Farming||Superseded by domain management|

I’m still working on the High-Availability Guide, so hold tight! In the meantime, you can direct any questions to the forums.
