JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 Supported Configurations

Updated -

Every JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) release is tested and supported on a variety of market-leading operating systems, Java™ Virtual Machines (JVMs), and database combinations. Red Hat provides both production and development support for supported configurations and tested integrations according to your subscription agreement in both physical and virtual environments. [1]

Supported Configurations

In order to be running in a supported configuration, EAP must be running in one of the following Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) certified implementations and on one of the operating systems supported by that implementation. Red Hat relies on the TCK to validate platform compatibility.

Java Virtual Machine Version
OpenJDK [2] 1.8
Oracle JDK 1.8
IBM JDK 1.8
HP JDK [3] 1.8
Azul Zing JDK 1.8
Azul Zulu 1.8

Tested Integrations

Tested Integrations are a defined set of specifically tested integrating technologies that represent the most common combinations that JBoss Enterprise Middleware customers are using. For these integrations, Red Hat has directly, or through certified partners, exercised our full range of platform tests as part of the product release process. Issues identified as part of this testing process are highlighted in release notes for each JBoss EAP release. This list of tested integrations will expand over time.

Red Hat provides both production and development support for the tested integrations in the same major version family at or above the tested version according to your subscription agreement. Earlier versions of a tested integration in the same major version family are supported on a commercially reasonable basis.

Tested Frameworks

These are the third party frameworks where Red Hat does not provide upgrades and fixes under our standard support terms and conditions. Commercially reasonable support is provided by Red Hat Global Support Services for these frameworks.

Red Hat may end support of these new "tested frameworks" at the end of the full support (Phase 1) cycle of Red Hat JBoss EAP 7.

Framework Version Additional Considerations
Spring (Core) 4.2.5.RELEASE Red Hat may drop support for a "Spring Major Version" in favour of a new Spring version in an EAP minor release
Spring Security 4.0.4.RELEASE Red Hat may drop support for a "Spring Major Version" in favour of a new Spring version in an EAP minor release
Spring Web Flow 2.4.2.RELEASE Red Hat may drop support for a "Spring Major Version" in favour of a new Spring version in an EAP minor release
Spring Web Services 2.2.4.RELEASE Red Hat may drop support for a "Spring Major Version" in favour of a new Spring version in an EAP minor release
Arquillian (Core) 1.1.11.Final None
ShrinkWrap Resolvers for Arquillian 2.2.2 None
AngularJS 1.4.8 Red Hat supports the examples (Quick Starts) these frameworks are used in and the generic use cases that these examples intend to demonstrate.
JQuery 2.0.3 & 2.1.4 Red Hat supports the examples (Quick Starts) these frameworks are used in and the generic use cases that these examples intend to demonstrate.
JQuery Mobile 1.4.2 & 1.4.5 Red Hat supports the examples (Quick Starts) these frameworks are used in and the generic use cases that these examples intend to demonstrate.

[1] Red Hat expects that customers will remain on a supported environment. In the event that a JVM, operating system, database, etc., or its version is no longer supported by its vendor, Red Hat may be limited in its ability to provide support and may require you to reproduce the issue in a supported environment for continued assistance.

[2] Red Hat limits support of OpenJDK to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

[3] Support for the HP JDK 1.8 was added with EAP version 7.0.
