Chapter 2. Introduction to Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit

2.1. About Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit

Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit is a set of enterprise-ready versions of popular open source frameworks. Together, these frameworks provide a solution for developing light and rich Java-based web applications.
JBoss Web Framework Kit comprises enterprise distributions of JBoss community web application frameworks and tested third party frameworks. These leading frameworks support fast and easy client-side and server-side application development and testing, with frameworks including RichFaces, jQuery, jQuery Mobile, Hibernate Search, Spring, and Arquillian.
The breadth of JBoss Web Framework Kit frameworks provides choice for Java application development. Each framework has been tested and certified for use in applications deployed to Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Web Server, or Red Hat OpenShift JBoss EAP cartridge. Inclusion in JBoss Web Framework Kit ensures stable versions of frameworks are available over long-term enterprise product life cycles, with regular releases for fixes and nonintrusive feature updates. Further, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio (an Eclipse-based development environment) provides integrated project templates, quickstarts and tooling for many of the JBoss Web Framework Kit frameworks.
