Chapter 2. Maintenance support

2.1. Maintenance support for JBoss EAP XP

When a new JBoss EAP XP major version is released, maintenance support for the previous major version begins. Maintenance support usually lasts for 12 weeks.

If you use a JBoss EAP XP major version that is outside of its maintenance support length, you might experience issues as the development of security patches and bug fixes no longer apply. To avoid such issues, upgrade to the newest JBoss EAP XP major version release that is compatible with your JBoss EAP version.
