1. Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit 2.x End Of Life

Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit 2.x has a published end-of-life date of June 2015. For more information, see https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/jboss_notes
JBoss Web Framework Kit has been the principal means by which Red Hat tested and supported popular open source web frameworks such as Apache Struts, Spring and Google Web Toolkit (GWT) running on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. Since the inception of JBoss Web Framework Kit, the industry has begun to move away from traditional server-side HTML-generating frameworks to ultra-rich HTML5 browser-optimized user experiences. In addition, some (previously) wildly popular open source web frameworks like Apache Struts have come to their community end of life. Furthermore, innovative frameworks like Seam have primarily been incorporated into the Java EE 6 specification to ensure ongoing support as part of an industry standard.
There are some components of JBoss Web Framework Kit that continue to be supported through other products in the Red Hat portfolio. For more information, see https://access.redhat.com/solutions/1314313 on the Red Hat Customer Portal.
