Submission + - Red Hat Hit With Patent Suit Over JBoss

An anonymous reader writes: A small software company is claiming that Red Hat's JBoss open source middleware violates one of its patents and is asking a court to stop Red Hat from distributing the product. Software Tree LLC claims that JBoss infringes on its database patent for "exchanging data and commands between an object oriented system and a relational system." A story on the suit in Information Week notes that Software Tree's partners include Microsoft, and that the suit was filed in Eastern Texas, which is known as a plaintiff's paradise for patent actions.
