Deploy JBoss on Linux. If you have the Linux skills, and your applications are coded properly you won't be disappointed. OpenSuse gets my vote.

My 2 cents: Solaris 10.

Solaris is optimized as a server platform (the features in your wish list). Throw in DTrace and Solaris Containers and now, ZFS is available for the x86 flavor.

Blastwave.org is the place to go if you need add-ons.

The features you mention are more a function of the application server than the operating system. That said, if you really expect high availability, you will need support for when things go wrong. And things WILL go wrong.
Linux flavors that are available with support include Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and SUSE Linux Enterprise (not the free OpenSUSE).
We use both Solaris 9 and Solaris 10 in our hosting environments. Never had any downtime except to apply patches.
