JBoss

JBoss is an Open Source, standards-compliant, Enterprise JavaBeans application server implemented in pure Java. JBoss provides JBossServer, the basic EJB container and JMX infrastructure, JBossMQ for JMS messaging, JBossMail for mail, JBossTX for JTA/JTS transactions, JBossSX for JAAS based security, JBossCX for JCA connectivity, and JBossCMP for CMP persistence. It integrates with Tomcat Servlet/JSP container and Jetty Web server/servlet container, and enables you to mix and match these components through JMX by replacing any component you wish with a JMX-compliant implementation for the same APIs. The goal is to provide a full J2EE stack in the Free/Open Source software world.

Release Notes: Several performance improvements, a fix for a security vulnerability in JMS, a workaround to allow the server to run with Sun JDK 1.5 beta 2, and numerous other smaller fixes.

  •  28 May 2004 21:23

Release Notes: This version fixed a leak of the authenticated JAAS Subject back to the Tomcat thread pool. The Subject associated with the thread was not being cleared, but the the principal and credentials were. Although this did not affect authentication or authorization, it could cause a previously authenticated Subject to be seen in an unauthenticated context. Applications associating sensitive information with the Subject or basing security decisions on the Subject via custom integration with JBoss could have been affected by this leak.

Poor software
No free documentation, I cannot get examples to work, even examples from the documentation I paid for.
The init phase when launching jboss is very very long and verbose. Errors are poorly reported with stange messages and useless (or wrong !) informations.
Benchmarks I found report the scalability is bad compared to other J2EE products, and overall performance is poor. Bad integration with popular developper tools.
I cannot recommend this product !

You will learn the deep integration points in JBoss and how to extend development to fit into your own solutions. The goal is for you to understand the super-server theory and how JBoss applied it to the JBoss core server. From this point it is fairly trivial for you to understand how to build your own real-life strand of EJB that fits your particular need. From client side cache to clustering and real-world security, we teach you "beyond J2EE" and how to quickly and simply solve your own middleware problems by using JBoss and the super-server theory in this practical, example oriented, hands-on presentation. The advanced class is targeted at consultants who will provide JBoss Group services to end clients as well as internal IT developers and ISV developers. Come meet your peers and the JBoss core people, in an intense, unique and challenging experience.
