VMWare has announced the release of VMWare vFabric Cloud Application Platform.
vFabric reportedly allows developers to build cloud applications up to 50% faster with Spring that can be run on premise or in the cloud.
Develop virtual and cloud applications up to 50% faster using the Spring framework and deploy them to a runtime environment that is optimized for Spring, ideally suited for virtual infrastructures and appropriate for the needs of modern applications, with the VMware vFabric Cloud Application Platform. With support for web-oriented, data-intensive and dynamic applications, vFabric is the best platform to build, run and scale modern applications on-premise or in the public cloud.
Full information about vFabric can be found on VMWare’s site and in the product datasheet.
JBoss 5 is supplied with 5 different server configurations:
When JBoss AS is started, the server configuration can be specified using the -cswitch, so for example, to start the minimal configuration, you would start JBoss as:
run.bat -c minimal
But what do the different configurations include? Each configuration contains a different set of services, for example clustering, which is only supported by the all configuration.
The JBoss Installation and Getting Started Guide contains details of what is in each different server configuration.
