9. Technology Previews

This section describes the Technology Preview features released alongside JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, their installation, and any known issues.

Warning

Technology Preview features are not fully supported under Red Hat subscription level agreements (SLAs), may not be functionally complete, and are not intended for production use. However, these features provide early access to upcoming product innovations, enabling customers to test functionality and provide feedback during the development process. As Red Hat considers making future iterations of Technology Preview features generally available, we will provide commercially reasonable efforts to resolve any reported issues that customers experience when using these features.

9.1. JBoss Web Services CXF

Warning

You should make a complete backup of your JBoss Enterprise Application Platform installation before installing JBoss Web Services CXF.
Follow these steps to install JBoss Web Services CXF:
  1. Download and unzip the jbossws-cxf-3.1.2.SP3-3.SP3.6.ep5.el4-tp-installer.zip in the home directory (your $JBOSS_HOME) of a pristine Enterprise Application Platform installation.
  2. Run ant in the created directory, jbossws-cxf-tp-installer.

    Note

    This step will replace JBoss Web Services Native with JBoss Web Services CXF in every configuration that contains JBoss Web Services Native.
Documentation is available from the JBoss.org Wiki: http://community.jboss.org/wiki/JBossWS-StackCXFUserGuide.

9.1.1. Known Issues with JBoss Web Services CXF

  • JBPAPP-3267: Running ant deploy-jboss510 from the stack checkout directory or a generated binary distribution does not result in a working application server configuration. This occurs primarily as a result of changes to src/main/scripts/assembly-deploy-artifacts.xml, which were made to produce the tp-installer.
