JBoss AS 7: Catching up with Java EE 6

In my Java EE 6 server comparison of June 2011, JBoss AS 6.0.0 was not exactly the shining star, both in terms of performance and usability.

The next major release JBoss AS 7, claiming to be lightning fast, was published in July 2011, followed by two maintenance updates in August and September.

Time to take another look at JBoss and check if it now compares more favourably to other servers.
