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.[2] JBoss ON is an administration and management platform for the development, testing, deployment, and monitoring of the application lifecycle.[3] 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.

Product features[edit]

JBoss ON provides performance, configuration, and inventory management in order to deploy, manage, and monitor the JBoss middleware portfolio, applications, and services.[4]

JBoss ON provides management of the following:[3]

JBoss ON is the downstream of RHQ[5] (see also section Associated Acronyms).

Licensing & Pricing[edit]

The various JBoss application platforms are open source, but Red Hat charges to provide a support subscription for JBoss Enterprise Middleware.
