The varieties of Java frameworks and component architectures have expanded greatly since the days when the JBoss application server arose as an open-source alternative to commercial J2EE engines. Now the major JBoss steward is responding.
Now Linux powerhouse and JBoss provider RedHat is pledging to expand well beyond its favored Java Enterprise Edition and Seam programming models, to support a wider range of programming models. These include Spring, Struts, and Google Web Toolkit (GWT).
Now available, the JBoss Web Framework Kit supports these popular open source frameworks used for web application development. This move positions RedHat at better advantage as Java developers continue to deploy light-weight framework alternatives.
