Red Hat has unveiled the new version of its JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform.
The company said that the 5.0 release would aim to allow businesses to more easily create and manage web portals.
The company said that the update would focus on easing the process of creating sites both for users looking for a simple site creation tool and a product that can allow developers to easily bring their skills to web portal management.
Additionally, the company is posting a technical preview of Site Publisher, a content management plug-in for Enterprise Portal Platform 5.
Red Hat said that the update was part of a larger overhaul planned for its JBoss middleware. The company is hoping to build a complete middleware platform to serve as a complete open-source alternative to other enterprise middleware platforms.
"Our goal is to have an alternative to the proprietary middleware stacks," said Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager of middleware for Red Hat.
"What has been occurring over the last few years is that more and more companies are now strategically using JBoss in the organisation, and many have standardised completely on a JBoss port."
