TNPM. Upgrade of JBoss to RHEL supported version

When scanning vulnereability of our application server(s), we've noticed that JBoss 4.x is no longer supported by Red Hat, which caused vulnerability flags. We've been informed that JBoss itself is tightly integrated with TNPMW application, so upgrading JBoss on its own is not possible and it is not on IBM's roadmap either right now.

Adapting application to new version of Jboss, especially one supported by RedHat would maybe open the door for new improvements, but at the moment it would be useful to have security from vulnerability standpoint.

    Thank you for the information. Can you tell us where we can find these training services that are offered by Persistent Systems to learn how to develop custom Tech Packs on TNCP (because we are interested in this new solution)?

    This enhancement request cannot be progressed. It would require a very large development effort. End of Support has already been announced for TNPM (Effective April 30, 2023). The way forward is to plan a migration project to move to TNCP. Clients can also avail of a license trade up from TNPM to TNCP. Where required, training services are offered by Persistent Systems to enable BP/Client to develop custom Tech Packs on TNCP.
