Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) on Azure App Service is a fully managed offering for Java EE (Jakarta EE) applications. Java developers have been deploying and scaling their Tomcat, Spring Boot, and other Java apps on App Service since 2014—when the platform first supported Java. Since then, our customers have told us they want the same hosting option for their Java EE (Jakarta EE) applications.
We heard your feedback and partnered with Red Hat to offer JBoss EAP on App Service, which has been in preview since September 2020. Our customers are excited to have a managed platform for their Java EE (Jakarta EE) applications and the peace of mind that comes with joint support from Red Hat and Microsoft. Today, the offer is generally available, so you can deploy apps into Red Hat JBoss EAP on App Service with no Red Hat subscription or licenses required.
“Red Hat and Microsoft are both committed to extending choice and flexibility for organizations as they shift traditional Java applications to the cloud. Red Hat JBoss EAP on Azure offers customers a fully configured, jointly supported solution to make it easier for organizations to realize the benefits of cloud-based architecture. We look forward to continuing to build upon our long-standing relationship with Microsoft and expand support for our joint customers."—Rich Sharples, Senior Director of Product Management – Application Services, Red Hat
