Hi,
I would like to know if HP Bluestone 8 can be used commercially?

Yes - full commercial deployment is allowed with no fees. I've been evaluating it since release and it's looking good.

Is there any legal reference document you can refer me to? I am thinking about using it commercially. Why use JBoss if HP is free and better (supporting clustering).

Yes HP Application Server 8.0 (HPAS 8.0) is available for free -- even for commercial use, even for Integration use.
Check out the HPAS FAQ. Also look at page 3 of this data sheet it says:
To encourage and jumpstart application development on this exciting platform, HP-AS is being distributed FREE OF LICENSING CHARGE for development AND production use
You can contact an HP Sales Representitve for further information: hpmdinfo@hp.com
And if there are any more questions you have about HPAS 8.0, I'll do my best to answer them.

... and just one other note -- HPAS 8.0 itself is free.
Free support is available through our listservs. You can also purchase support agreements.
The HPAS 8.0 Resilient Pack is available for a cost of $5,000. The Resilient Pack includes things such as JMS support, persistent state management, xa-compliant JDBC drivers (Merant), and multi-database transaction service.

Resilient Pack is pretty cheap App server compared to it's commercial counter-parts.
Do you know how this server is in terms of performance, maintainance, clustering, security and is it J2EE certified?

As far as I know, we haven't published any data on Performance, but I've heard good things... and its not yet J2EE certified. I'd try posting your other question to the HPSERVER-TALK listserv, there a lots of developers and other users on the listserv, hopefully you can get a better answer regarding security etc there.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
