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.
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.
