Red Hat Reiterates Support for Java EE With New Release

Red Hat officially closed on its acquisition of enterprise Java tools vendor JBoss for $350 million last June. Ever since, Red Hat has been growing its Java application tools business and expanding its development products and projects.

Red Hat executives emphasized their commitment to Java at today’s Devnation event in San Francisco with a new middleware platform, while noting that other other languages, notably Microsoft’s .NET, are now also being supported as well.
