JBoss is a popular, open-source application server platform developed by Red Hat. It is based on Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) and is optimized for high-performance, scalable, and transactional applications. JBoss provides a robust middleware solution that enables developers to build, deploy, and manage Java applications for a wide range of industries and use cases.
