WildFly brings you the latest innovations in application server technology, and
- is developer-friendly with fast start-up, extensive tooling, and quickstarts
- supports Java EE standards and beyond
- is ideal for running in cloud environments where every cycle matters
WildFly 8 brings:
- Java EE 7 support: This means all the latest and greatest technologies such as WebSocket/JSR 356, Batch Processing/JSR 352, JSON-P/JSR 353, Concurrency Utilities/JSR 236, JAX-RS 2.0/JSR 339, JMS 2.0/JSR 343, and all others from the platform are now available in WildFly.
- New high performance web server (Undertow): A flexible performant web server written in java, providing both true blocking and non-blocking API’s based on NIO. It has the ability to scale to a million connections and has impressive numbers on throughput. It also allows us to add support for modern security standards. And since web server is one of the most critical pieces of an application server, writing it a fresh allows us to provide the best possible performance and memory efficiency.
- Greatly reduced port usage: Nearly all protocols are multiplexed over two ports: 8080 for application and 9990 for management. This is a very useful feature in high-density environments such as OpenShift.
- Role based access control (RBAC) and Audit logging: RBAC is the ability to restrict access to system or certain portions of it to authorized users. Seven pre-defined roles can be used to map permissions to users and groups to different parts of management infrastructure. Audit logging allows logging for of operations affecting the management model. RBAC and Audit Logging certainly makes the server enterprise grade.
- Patching infrastructure: Infrastructure to support the application of patches to an existing install has been implemented. This capability allows for a remote client to install and rollback new static modules and binary files using the WildFly management protocol.
