The WildFly team have announced that WildFly 11 Beta 1 is now available. This release is now feature complete.
The key highlights of WildFly 11 Beta 1 are:
- New Security Infrastructure - Elytron
- Simplification of JNDI and EJB invocation
- HTTP/2 support
- Out of the box load balancer configuration
Of these changes, the most significant is the Elytron security system.
Elytron offers a centralised security framework that can be used both by applications depoyed to the application server and by the application server itself, thus providing a consistent approach to security for WildFly 11 users. Elytron covers both authentication and authorization.
WildFly 11 Beta 1 can be downloaded directly from http://wildfly.org/downloads/
