Root Cause

Technically, there is no version of JBoss EAP that corresponds exactly to any version of JBoss AS (i.e. community release) or WildFly. JBoss EAP is maintained in an independent source code branch. Bugs are fixed in the current upstream community versions first but are often back-ported to earlier JBoss EAP releases in patches to provide Enterprise customers with consistent and stable software. WildFly was formerly known as JBoss AS.
