Non-relational database management systems such as NoSQL are gaining popularity as an effective alternative to traditional relational database management systems for their scale and developer productivity.
Through the collaboration, Red Hat and 10gen are working together on the Hibernate OGM project to create a consistent, easy-to-use data access framework to make NoSQL development mainstream for Java developers and 10gen's popular open source database, MongoDB.
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform supports popular mobile frameworks and technologies to provide a consistent platform for native and HTML5 experiences to an increasing number of computing devices and form factors beyond the traditional PC through investment in community projects such as
Open choice and polyglot platforms
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is also providing the benefits of a cloud-enabled service fabric to additional languages and frameworks such as Ruby, Clojure, Ceylon, Scala and the Spring Framework, allowing developers to choose the most appropriate language or framework while still being able to leverage the performance, advanced management and scalability of the Java Virtual Machine. Red Hat will continue to be a community leader and advocate for enterprise Java standards while embracing this vision of polyglot programming.
To better reflect these initiatives Red Hat invites the community to help rename the upstream JBoss Application Server community project through an election process.

“Red Hat remains committed to the community and customers, providing continued support for existing enterprise Java standards, while also driving new standards that will allow customers to migrate and adopt the technology at their own pace. It’s an exciting change and we see it as an opportunity for both Red Hat and the broader development community to respond to and lead the charge in this new era of application development.”
