RedHat acquires JBoss

  • 11-Apr-2006

Ending months of speculation, Linux distributor RedHat will acquire the open source Java company JBoss. As Enterprise Portal Report readers know, JBoss Portal runs on almost any operating system, but only with the JBoss application server. With JBoss Portal potentially bundled with Red Hat in the future, many customers will ask if JBoss will suffice for their portal use-cases, instead of an additional investment in another product such as IBM WebSphere Portal. However, our research found JBoss Portal coming up a bit short in functionality. As a side note: JBoss executive Mark Fleury had previously ridiculed Red Hat in an intemperate blog entry, but apparently this was nicely cleaned up before the acquisition.
