What is JBoss?
September 02, 2007 8:02AM
JBoss is an open source project, sponsored by Red Hat, aimed at building a Java-based middleware application server.
An application server is a software engine that delivers applications to client computers or devices. The main benefit of an application server is the ease of application development, since applications need not be built from scratch, but are assembled from building blocks provided by the application server.
Middleware is a piece of software that connects two or more software applications so that they can exchange data.
