The JBoss Application Server, JBoss AS, is now called Wildfly!

Why ?  JBoss AS was renamed to reduce confusion between the JBoss Application Server project, the JBoss Community and the Red Hat JBoss product line.When the JBoss Application Server project was launched in 1999, no one would have ever guessed at how successful the project would become. Today, JBoss represents one of the finest Java EE application servers, a large and vibrant community, and a successful commercial product – JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.The project continues to provide rapid innovation, cutting edge technology and an environment that inspires a developer to collaborate and contribute to the project’s research and development.

The JBoss Community hosts nearly 100 projects focused on integration, business rules, processes, NoSQL, cloud, mobile, polyglot, messaging, tooling, alternative development frameworks and more.

So JBoss / Red Hat asked the community to help the JBoss AS project find a new name, and WildFly was chosen through an election process held in November 2012. Many thanks to the community for helping us with this change. Visit to learn more.
