Jboss EAP 5

Latest response

I'm preparing a presentation about various jboss eap inside my compagny's environment.
I would like to know:
1. JBOSS EAP 5 is still supported by you?
2. which effort to migrating applications built with JBOSS EAP 5 to JBOSS 6.4?
3. Could I deploy ear built in JBOSS EAP 6.3 inside JBOSS 6.4?

Thanks advance for your answer.


Hi Eric,

To get some definitive answers to your questions, I would suggest contacting Red Hat sales or a solution architect, or alternatively opening a support case to have a closer look at your environment.

Here are some brief responses to your questions:

  1. JBoss EAP 5 is currently in Extended Life Support. You can find more information on what this means in the Red Hat JBoss Middleware Product Update and Support Policy.
  2. Without knowing the details of what is in your application, there will probably be some effort required to migrate your application from JBoss EAP 5 to JBoss EAP 6.4. The JBoss EAP 6.4 Migration Guide has more details on what changes might be required.
  3. Without knowing the details of what is in your EAR, I would expect that it should be OK. The changes from JBoss EAP 6.3 to JBoss EAP 6.4 are summarized in the Release Notes.

I hope this helps!
