The Java Cryptographic Roadmap has been updated :
* Distrust TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 by default
o TLS protocol versions 1.0 and 1.1 are no longer considered
secure and have been superseded by more secure and modern
versions (TLS 1.2 and 1.3). This change has been integrated with
JDK 16 Early Access build 26.
* Upgrade of default algorithms used to encrypt PKCS12 keystores
o The new algorithms are based on AES-256 and SHA-256 and are
stronger than the old algorithms which were based on RC2,
DESede, and SHA-1.This change is already included in JDK 16
Early Access build 23.

One thing missing in the proposal
<https://github.com/wildfly/wildfly-proposals/pull/320> of the inclusion of
MicroProfile Reactive Messaging (and RSO which is used by Reactive
Messaging) is if we should add it to standalone-microprofile(-ha).xml or
As it previously came in via the feature pack
made sense to have it added from the FP, but now that it will be part of
WildFly I am not sure what to do. In a way the reactive specs are separate
from the other MP specs and not part of the MP platform, and adding the
current MP platform is probably the main use-case for
At the same time I guess it could be nice for users to have something out
of the box to run these. If we do not want it in
standalone-microprofile.xml, do we want:
* an xml in docs/examples/configs
* an enable-reactive.cli script in docs/examples
It is worth pointing out that what 'reactive' is will evolve:
* We are currently only supporting RM 1.0, so we only need Reactive
Messaging and RSO. Once RM .next is out it makes sense to also include
Context Propagation (which is currently in the feature pack) to support
'user bridge' use cases.
* All subsystems are currently empty, however we will look at making
Reactive Messaging at least configurable going forward (to move stuff like
connection info out from the MP config properties into something
referenceable in the subsystem)
* RM can work without connectors. We are currently porting the Kafka
connector, while the others (presently MQTT and AMQP) live in the feature
pack. Inclusion of these is presently a pure Galleon layers thing, but once
included may have impact on the subsystem implementations.
So perhaps we should either go with a pure documentation approach, or a
minimal CLI script to turn these on. I'd be happy to hear your thoughts.
Elytron principal propagation from local EJB was made compatible with
legacy with issue WFLY-12537. We can provide the possibility to configure
whether this change should be applied or not. I've submitted a proposal for
adding such configuration option:
Any feedback is welcomed.

I've created an initial proposal for adding native support for OpenID
Connect (OIDC) to WildFly, making it possible to secure deployments using
OIDC without needing to install a Keycloak client adapter:
Any feedback is welcome.
Time continues to fly by! We're hard at work on WildFly 22 and next thing
we know it will be time to release it.
Here are the key dates:
Friday Dec 4 -- Feature freeze for features coming in via WildFly Core. PRs
must be in a mergeable state early in the European work day.
Wed Dec 9 -- Feature freeze for features coming in via main WildFly. PRs
must be in a mergeable state at the start of the European work day.
Thur Dec 10 -- WildFly 22.0.0.Beta1
Mon, Jan 11 -- All changes for WildFly 22 should be in mergeable state
Wed Jan 13/Thur Jan 14 -- WildFly 22.0.0.Final tagged and made available
Note the longer than normal gap between the Beta and Final. This is due to
the expectation that many people will not be working in late December and
early January. Please plan your work accordingly. Try and get things done
as soon as possible after the Beta.
I'm happy to announce the release of WildFly 22.0.0.Alpha1. It's available
for download from https://www.wildfly.org/downloads/.
We typically don't do releases this early in the dev cycle for a WildFly
major, but this time we wanted to let the WildFly community have a look at
the new 'WildFly Preview' flavor of WildFly that we're adding. We’re using
WildFly Preview to give our community a tech preview look at things we see
coming down the road in our main WildFly distribution. Right now this is
mostly about what we are doing with Jakarta EE 9, where we've made a lot of
progress this last month.
My blog post announcing the release gets into a lot more details. Please
have a look at
try it out and give us your feedback!
Thanks so much to everyone in the WildFly community who have been working
on EE 9, both for WildFly and in general. I'd like to specially thank Scott
Marlow, Richard Opalka, Jean-Francois Denise and Darran Lofthouse for their
hard work in pulling WildFly Preview together.
