From the Filter by Product Channel menu select the JBoss Application Platform, version 4.3.0, the architecture of your server, and then click on the Filter button.
The following image is an example filter search and displays all versions of the EAP that are available. For the certified version of JBoss EAP select JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.3.0.
