Much to the enjoyment of the entire JBoss community, we're happy to make this week's headline hint to the first final release of WildFly, the premier open source Java EE7 application server (and the foundation of the future releases of JBoss EAP). The importance of this release can't be overstated, for multiple reasons: it is the first release since the JBoss AS project has been renamed (and it is a good time to remember and thank again the JBoss community for their tremendous involvement in the effort), it is state-of-the-art Java EE 7-compliant (both in the Web and Full profile), it makes use of a modern, cutting edge, highly performant, web server (Undertow), and, last but not least, it is massively cool! And you can surely learn so much more from the announcement made by the project lead, Jason Greene.
In addition to the official announcement, we strongly recommend a few other articles published this week on about WildFly 8:
