JBoss 5 is now GA - Welcome to JavaEE 5!

ALT DESCR

JBoss 5 AS 5.0 is now available as GA (announcement). The commercial version is supposed to follow "soon" (their Open Source business model is slightly different to the GlassFish model).

With this announcement the most important Java EE AppServers are now compliant with JSR 244. The official Compatibility Page shows a nice 4x4 table. Below is my attempt to list them chronologically - let me know if you see mistakes. GlassFish appears twice, once for v1 and once for v2, but GlassFish v3 does not show because GFv3 prelude is not a full Java EE 5 implementation.

• May 2006 - JavaEE 5 goes final.
• May 2006 - GlassFish v1 and SJS AS 9.0 PE (two names - those were the bad old days).
• May 2006 - Tmaxsoft's JEUS 6, SAP's NetWeaver 7.1, Kingdee's Apsuic AppServer v5.0
• April 2007 - BEA's (now Oracle's) WebLogic 10
• May 2007 - Oracle's Application Server 11
• June 2007 - Apache Geronimo 2 and IBM's WebSphere Community Edition
• September 2007 - GlassFish v2
• June 2008 - NEC's webOTX 8.1
• October 2008 - IBM's WebSphere 7.0
• December 2008 - RedHat's JBoss 5

Added - I updated the table with the date for Oracle's Application Server 11.
