But not every problem on our path has been technical or come from within Red Hat. Without going into details, let's just say that at times it seemed that processes and red tape were being thrown in our way. However, we got past these and the results speak for themselves: the fastest, most configurable and adaptable EE6 implementation (Web Profile) out there. And full EE6 is next on the roadmap, with JBossAS 7.1 due out soon. So if you haven't already tried it I encourage you to download it and give it a try.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved in the development of JBossAS 7.0. This includes a diverse group of people including the projects, our QE teams, docs, support, product management, program management, marketing and many others. It would be impossible to single out those individuals who have stood out during the last 18 months since everyone has been a rockstar. However, I do want to mention Jason Greene again: any team is influenced both negatively or positively by it's leader and Jason has lead most positively by example throughout. And of course Bruno Georges, the engineering manager, who took over the role just over a year ago and mustered his troops so well! See what I mean? It's really hard to call out one person without immediately thinking of all of the others involved! A great team effort.
To know more about Java EE, I highly recommend Java EE 7 Essentials: Enterprise Developer Handbook by Arun Gupta.
