  • We are about to install a new product, which is shipped with JBoss "GA" edition. So far we have used "EAP" editions of JBoss. I am not sure if GA JBoss should or should not be counted in total number of JBoss to license in a mixed environment running both EAP and GA editions in parallel.
  • It appears we are not subscribed to get JBoss via RHN. Reading the JBoss docs it says The server must be subscribed to the JBoss Application Platform (v 6) for 6Server x86_64 sub-channel. T he sub-channel is in the Additional Services Channels for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 for x86_64 group.
