    Hi Arun,
    Is there an Eclipse Server Plugin for JBoss EAP 6.3?
    The closest I found was under “Red Hat JBoss Middleware” and was called “JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1+”.

  3. Arun Gupta says:


    That should work. It does not specifically list the exact version and “+” indicates 6.3 as well.

    Hi Arun,

    Can you please let me know some resources(steps) for migration of Jboss eap 6.1 to jboss eap 6.3.

  5. Dimitris Andreadis says:

    Migrating from 6.1 to 6.3 should be fairly straightforward, since we’ve made significants efforts to retain backwards compatibility between 6.x minor releases.

    Some material for migration from pre 6.x releases can be found here:
