It's Oracle vs. JBoss!

Oracle makes some, what we small-time bloggers would call, "deliciously provocative and blog-worthy" claims in a recent WebLogic vs. JBoss EAP blog post: Why should you choose Oracle WebLogic 12c instead of JBoss EAP 6?

Red Hat responds here in True | False: Oracle FUD

Public Service Announcement: In case anyone was curious, the link to follow WebLogic on Twitter from the WebLogic Application Server main product page is incorrect. I believe the official twitter feed for Oracle WebLogic is @oracleweblogic and not that nice fellow who scored the @weblogic handle early in 2008, (although he does have way more followers than that gentleman who grabbed the @jboss handle and used it to EARN $380 IN A SINGLE DAY WITH JUST ONE POST!!).



JBoss Application Server 7.1 Released

The JBoss Community app server team released version 7.1 today. One of the many news-worthy features in this release is a JEE6-certified Full Profile (JBoss AS 7.0 was JEE6 certified for the Web profile only). Other interesting features for ops folks in this release include updates to the management API, CLI, and Admin Console as well as clustering and security improvements. See the Release Notes for more information.

Keeping in mind that JBoss.org downloads come with no vendor support and may not be suitable for production deployment, head over to the downloads page in order to grab yourself a copy. A lot of what's included in the community version could end up in the next JBoss EAP release.
