JBoss EAP 7 received 7 years of Full Support. Given this exceptionally long Full Support phase, it is expected to receive only 2 years of Maintenance Support.

Latest Red Hat JBoss EAP releases are following the long-life product life cycle with 7 years of support divided in two phases. The first phase, called Full Support, lasts 4 years with enhancements, bug and security fixes. The second phase, called Maintenance Support, lasts 3 years with bug and security fixes only.

Additional support is available by subscribing to Extended Life Support (ELS). This phase is divided in two parts: ELS 1 and ELS 2. Critical bug and security fixes are only provided during the ELS 1 phase.

More information is available on the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform website.
