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.
- For information about maintenance support, see the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform expansion pack (JBoss EAP XP or EAP XP) Life Cycle and Support Policies located on the Red Hat Customer Portal.
