Does JBoss EAP support the use of WebSockets?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Does JBoss EAP support the use of WebSockets?
  • If it's not supported with current EAP version then please let us know starting which version of EAP we have/will have Websockets support.
  • Does JBoss EAP 6.4 support the use of WebSockets as up till EAP 6.3 it seems that WebSockets is NOT SUPPORTED in production environments. We would like to know if WebSockets are still UNSUPPORTED in productions environments for EAP 6.4 or not?
  • Are websockets via nio or apr recommended?
  • Are websockets supported with mod_cluster?
