"Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse" OK, let's hold it there because we all know that isn't quite right. As I said last Christmas Eve, the JBossAS team were definitely stirring and as a result released the final version of 6 and at the same time were working on JBossAS 7, which will be (cue The Six Million Dollar Man music) "Better, stronger, faster" than it was before. OK, for those of you under 30 that reference probably means nothing .


However, returning to the main theme of this posting, the JBossAS 7 team have been at it again and just released the first beta of 7. If you haven't tried it out yet then I recommend you do so. JBossAS 7 will be the basis for everything we do in the coming years in the area of Java Enterprise Edition 7 (and subsequently 8), as well as things we'll be doing (are doing) outside of that arena. And if you want to understand more on that last bit then you should come along to JUDCon and JBossWorld!
