|Stable release||3.1.1 / September 2012|
|License||GNU Lesser General Public License|
JBoss Operations Network (or JBoss ON or JON) is free software/open-source Java EE-based network management software. JBoss Operations Network is part of the JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio of software. JBoss ON is an administration and management platform for the development, testing, deployment, and monitoring of the application lifecycle. Because it is Java-based, the JBoss application server operates cross-platform: usable on any operating system that supports Java. JBoss ON was developed by JBoss, now a division of Red Hat.
JBoss ON provides performance, configuration, and inventory management in order to deploy, manage, and monitor the JBoss middleware portfolio, applications, and services.
JBoss ON provides management of the following:
- Discovery and inventory
- Configuration management
- Application deployment
- Perform and schedule actions on servers, applications and services
- Availability management
- Performance management
JBoss ON is the downstream of RHQ (see also section Associated Acronyms).
Licensing & Pricing
The various JBoss application platforms are open source, but Red Hat charges to provide a support subscription for JBoss Enterprise Middleware.
