For this week I wanted to start out describing the rewards of joining the JBoss Community. The JBoss Community is full of great projects and people. In addition to using the Projects you may want to considering becoming a contributor, whether it be a new feature, a bug fix, wiki entries, helping other members, or even just filing a bug report.  When you join an open source community you join developers from all over the world who contribute in different ways.  They are 100% open source, developed for and by its community of users.  For myself, being a part of the JBoss Open Source Community for many years has been very rewarding.  Some of the reasons are:



  • Building awesome New Technology
  • Learning something new
  • Proving yourself
  • Being part of something big
  • Challenging yourself
  • Building relationships


The Wildfly project has come a long way and supports the modern web and Java EE7.  So let's move onto this week in the JBoss Community!



EAP (Wildfly)


Markus walks us through getting started with JBoss Entrprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 Alpha and JEE 7. Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7 (JBoss EAP 7) is a middleware platform built on open standards and compliant with the Java Enterprise Edition 7 specification. Built on top of innovative and proven open source technologies like WildFly, it will make Java EE 7 development a lot easier.  Markus also walks us through HTTP/2 with EAP 7.  HTTP/2 support has been added as a technical preview. It is provided by the new webserver Untertow.  HTTP/2 reduces latency by compressing headers and multiplexing many streams over the same TCP connection. It also supports the ability for a server to push resources to the client before it has requested them, leading to faster page loads.
