Final Words

Like I said in today痴 call, we have a big list of 100% working quickstarts already, probably more than enough as companion of WFLY 8 Final release, but some of the ones that do not work partially or completely kind of worry me, so I知 going to retry the ones which failed with current WildFly sources in master branch. In case the errors persist I will contact related core team members and start digging.

By the way, the Hibernate 3 one, do we need to worry with this or should I simply remove it right away?

With respect to the ones not worked out, I don稚 think it makes any sense to use WFLY with other JBoss comercial products, perhaps a change to related community projects should be done later...

There is a final pass of fixes in the README.md files, since during tests I noted there are still a lot of references to EAP 6, but that is not relevant to the WFLY 8 code release.
