Infinispan AS 7.x modules

The latest Infinispan 5.2.0.CR2 release includes a set of modules for JBoss AS 7.x. By installing these modules, it is possible to deploy user applications without packaging the Infinispan JARs within the deployments (WARs, EARs, etc), thus minimizing their size. In order not to conflict with the Infinispan modules which are already present within an AS installation, the modules provided by the Infinispan distribution are located within their own slot identified by the major.minor versions (e.g. slot="5.2").
