The JBoss Way


What Is The JBoss Way?

The JBoss Way is a better way to build applications, using modern technologies, with a recommended approach that makes you more productive. We've assembled and integrated some of the best projects available so developers can focus on building their applications easily. The JBoss Way provides some exceptional tooling including JBoss Developer Studio 6, JBoss Forge and Arquillian to increase productivity. There is a variety of choices and innovations available that all build upon the foundations of Java EE 6 and CDI. Whether you deploy your applications locally or to the cloud you'll be using one of the best application servers available. Building applications was never this fun. Follow along the JBoss Way.

Java EE 6

Java EE 6 is a major advancement in simplicity and productivity. With Java EE 6 you are provided with Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI), Java Persistence API 2, Bean Validation, RESTful services and many other technologies for building modern applications quickly. With the power of annotations, you will notice a significant reduction in the amount of lines of code, classes and configuration settings required to applications. CDI is the cornerstone of building modern applications The JBoss Way. CDI is more than a framework, it's a whole, rich programming model. With JBoss's Weld being the first implementation and the reference implementation, you know you'll be in good hands.
