This is the 3rd bug fixing release of the JBoss Application Server v4.2 series. The aim of this release is to provide
fixes for bugs reported by the community against previous JBossAS v4.2.x releases. There were some backwards
compatible component upgrades so switching to AS 4.2.3.GA from a previous 4.2.0/4.2.1/4.2.2 release should not
present any problems. Please check out the Detailed Release Notes section for the full details.
A secondary target for this release was to improve support for Java 6. JBossAS 4.2.3.GA can be build with both JDK5
and JDK6. The JDK5 compiled binaries have undergone more rigorous testing, they constitute our certified version and
can run under both Java 5 & 6 VMs (with a few configuration changes for JDK6, see the configuration section below). The
JDK6 compiled binaries include support for the JDBC 4 APIs, but this should be considered experimental at this point.
I think it will not work
You can try anyway.
Perhaps it will start anyway
Thanks for your reply.
It seems to work but I want to know if somebody already tried it and faced problems down the road.
I think that jboss can works correctly,but the your web-app could doesn't work if is develoved with another jdk
I'm doing test with the jdk1.7 and it's seems all ok, so good luck
I would expect that a compiled JBoss and a application compiled with full Java5 compatibility will work as the JVM should be compatilbe an exec code compiled with previous versions.
Also application code compiled with Java7 but without using features of Java6/7 shuould work.
I would be conservative and use compiler with Java5 compatible flag for source check and compiled code.
