You mentioned that "We are an ISV and planning to rollout our product based on Wildfly 7.2.0 Final"
=> There is no WildFly 7.2.0 Final release available. Please see the WildFly available downloads. http://wildfly.org/downloads/
Where as Red Hat Supported JBoss EAP 6.1.0 is built based on JBossAS 7.2.0 Available here: JBoss EAP - Downloads
JBoss AS 7.2.0 we need to build manually. Even if it is build based on wildfly/wildfly at 7.2.0.Final · GitHub It should be called as AS7. Till JBoss AS7.1.1 the direct download of installer is available in: JBoss Application Server Downloads - JBoss Community
JBoss EAP (Red Hat Supported) is based on JBoss AS7 projects and the JBossAS mapping can be found in : JBoss Enterprise Application Platform Component Details - Red Hat Customer Portal For example JBoss EAP 6.2 is built on JBoss AS 7.3.0 Final, Similarly JBoss EAP 6.3 is built on JBoss AS7.4.0 Final
Regarding your query: "is it ok to refer to our deployment platform as "JBoss AS 7.2.0", or we must refer it as "Wildfly 7.2.0".
=> No that is incorrect. till 7.x it is called as JBossAS
WildFly begin from 8.x.
Also mention that AS7.1.1 is the last AS7 community release. The versions 7.2/7.3/7.4 are internal tags and not build for the community. These versions are used to build the EAP6.x which is not accessible without a valid subscription.
The JBossAS project was renamed to WildFly starting with Version 8.
If I quoted you correctly here , you said that "all builds from github are open source licensed".
Thus I assume that if we build JBoss AS 7.2.0 from this github tag we will able to use the compiled binary for free?
But this of course contradict to your statement in reply to my question above.
Can you elaborate more?
If someone can give a definite "yes you can use JBoss AS 7.2.0 for free" or "no you have to have a subscription because <explanation>" it would be super awesome and much appreciated.
If you build JBoss AS 7.2 from the git repo: https://github.com/wildfly/wildfly/tree/7.2.0.Final then you can use it for free and you do not need any subscription from Red Hat.
You will not find the JBoss AS 7.3 or 7.4 In the above git repository as those are Red Hat internal tags.
If you download JBoss EAP 6.1 (which is offered by Red Hat and Developed on JBoss AS 7.2) then you will need subscription. Simple rule For JBoss EAP (Enterprise Application Platform) you need subscription for production uses OR a 0$ subscription which is for development purpose. See below:
JBoss EAP: If you download JBoss EAP from : JBoss EAP - Downloads Once you accept the terms and conditions of the JBoss Developer Program which provides $0 subscriptions for development use only.
For any JBossAS release no subscription is needed from Red Hat side.
can you kindly direct me to written 'terms and condition' stating that?
"You will not find the JBoss AS 7.3 or 7.4 In the above git repository as those are Red Hat internal tags."
that explains a lot!
thank you for your guidance through this licensing maze.
