Chapter 3. Unsupported features and deprecated features

3.1. Unsupported features

Support for some technologies is removed due to the high maintenance cost, low community interest, and better alternative solutions. The following features are not supported in JBoss EAP XP 2.0.0:

EAP Operator automated transaction recovery with your bootable JAR

On OpenShift, you cannot use the EAP Operator automated transaction recovery feature with your bootable JAR. A fix for this technical limitation is planned for a future JBoss EAP XP 2.0.0 patch release.

3.2. Deprecated features

Some features have been deprecated with this release. This means that no enhancements are made to these features, and they might be removed in the future, usually the next major release.

Red Hat continues to provide full support and bug fixes under our standard support terms and conditions. For more information about the Red Hat support policy for JBoss EAP XP, see the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform expansion pack life cycle and support policies located on the Red Hat Customer Portal.
