JBossAS 5.0.0.GA Released
JBoss Application Server 5.0.0.GA has been release and is available for download.
JBoss 5.0.0.GA Release Notes
This is the final release of the JBoss 5.0 series for the Java EE™5 codebase that fully complies with the Java EE 5
conformance testing certification requirements. It brings us to the end of a 3+ year marathon of redesigning the most
popular open-source application server over a completely new kernel architecture, the JBoss Microcontainer. It also
marks the beginning of a new era of innovation for JBoss as we will be exploring the capabilities and limitations of
the new architecture in the releases to come. In our view, JBossAS 5 provides a healthy foundation and the most
advanced and fully extensible, cross component model, aspect integration, server runtime environment.
For information on the APIs that make up Java EE 5, see Java EE APIs & Docs. A tutorial on Java EE 5 can be found
here. Please visit also the JBoss AS docs pages as we'll be updating the documents with the latest information, and
post your questions to the JBossAS 5 User Forum.
A sample Java EE 5 application that can be run on top of JBoss 5 and demonstrates many interesting technologies is
the Seam Booking Application available here. Check out the JBoss Seam framework pages that link to many interesting
topics for combining Seam with JBossAS 5.
