Novell Ditches JBoss as It Launches SUSE Linux Enterprise 10

Novell Inc appears to have ditched the JBoss application server from its SUSE Linux Enterprise distribution following the acquisition of the open source application server vendor by Red Hat Inc.

Waltham, Massachusetts-based Novell announced the general availability of the server and desktop versions of SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 on Monday, making much of the fact that it has beaten Red Hat with support for the likes of Xen and Xgl graphics.

Both SLES and SLED are reportedly missing the JBoss Application Server, however, suggesting Novell has turned its back on the open source Java middleware after it was snapped up by Linux rival Red Hat for up to $420m.
