Presenter: Jay Balunas

Description: You've heard all the terms - Mobile Web, HTML5, JBoss AS7, Restful services, jQuery Mobile. Maybe you've even played around with them a bit. But how do they all fit together? We're going to discuss all of this, and how it is encompassed in the POH5 Architecture, otherwise known as Plain Old HTML5! Specifically how the technologies and techniques around this drive the next generation web.

In this webinar Jay Balunas is going to walk through a sample application that does just that. Of coarse there will be links to the code, a live version of it hosted up on Red Hat Openshift (our very own PaaS), and plenty of details to wade through like:

  • Pure HTML clients
  • JAX-RS GET & POST endpoints
  • HTML5 based page structure
  • HTML5 form element & validation
  • CSS3 selectors used for styling
  • JAX-RS validation handling
  • jQuery & jQuery Mobile integration
  • QUnit test suite to validate JavaScript
  • Arquilian test suite to validate endpoints

Since part of this example is encapsulated in a Maven archetype you can get your project started in no time, and understand the guts from this presentation!

JBoss AS7 for Spring Developers

Date: Wednesday, November 16, 2011
Time: 16:00 UTC, 12:00 Noon Boston, 9:00 San Francisco, 12:00 Midnight Singapore
View webinar in Vimeo

Presenter: Marius Bogoevici

Description: Getting the best experience while developing Spring applications owes a lot to running them on a state-of-the-art application server. In this session, we will show you how JBoss AS7 with its new architecture and a new set of features provides an ideal environment for developing and deploying Spring applications.

There are multiple ways in which a Spring developer can benefit from the overall goodness that is JBoss AS7. On one hand, you can use it as a generic Java EE 6 application server and stay up-to-date with the latest enterprise Java specification, while continuing to use your favorite development model. However, for advanced users, taking advantage of features which are unique to JBoss AS is what can provide a competitive edge, and in this webinar we will cover both angles.

This webinar is addressing developers and architects that use Spring in their applications, both new to JBoss AS or seasoned users of a previous version of it. For new users, it will demonstrate how to run Spring applications in JBoss AS7. and for existing users it will distill the new features of JBoss AS7 from a Spring user perspective, including how Snowdrop, the JBoss extension for Spring is addressing their needs.

Since staying in touch with technical advances is critical for the success of an enterprise application, a question often asked is how can Spring developers blend with CDI, the Java EE 6 native dependency injection model, to create applications which are both future-proof, but also friendly to existing code, which is another important aspect of adopting JBoss AS7 as the runtime of choice. In response to that, the webinar will cover the Spring/CDI integration which currently exists as part of the Seam project.

Presenter Bio: Marius Bogoevici is a Senior Software Engineer with Red Hat, leading the JBoss AS/Spring integration efforts. He is currently the lead for Snowdrop, a utility package that contains JBoss-specific extensions to the Spring Framework. He makes regular contributions to Weld, the JSR-299 Reference Implementation.

Marius has an extensive experience of more than 14 years developing and architecting software systems. Prior to joining Red Hat, he was a Spring consultant with SpringSource. He is a contributor to the Spring Integration enterprise integration framework and co-author of "Spring Integration in Action".

Mobile JSF for the Java Web Developer

Date: Wednesday, November 2, 2011
Time: 16:00 UTC, 12:00 Noon Boston, 9:00 San Francisco, 12:00 Midnight Singapore
View the webinar in Vimeo

Presenter: Wesley Hales and Brian Leathem

Description: Not much is hotter today than mobile web development! This mobile world has new restrictions and old issues. As Java enterprise developers you're dedicated to standards. You've also got existing JSF applications (hopefully written with RichFaces) that need a mobile face. Do you have to move away from JavaServer Faces (JSF) to write kick ass mobile web applications?

NO!

This session will go through the details, resources, and code you need to create near native, mobile web applications with todays enterprise technologies. That means your Java Enterprise Edition 6 app server (JBoss AS7) running with JSF 2, CDI, JMS, bean validation, etc…, but enhanced with device and feature detection, HTML5 and CSS3. This is a very technical session, that will assume some understanding on the mobile web and JSF. Don't worry, if you saw Burr Sutter's webinar on September 21st (http://vimeo.com/29403374), and have basic knowledge of JSF you'll be all set.

With JSF 2 and RichFaces 4 you can still get the advantages of working with Java EE6 while working with the latest in client technology. It's not all good news though and we'll go over some of the pitfalls of working with JSF on mobile devices, and how you can work around them.

Application Mobility with EE6, CDI and Monterey

Date: Wednesday, October 5, 2011
Time: 16:00 UTC, 12:00 Noon Boston, 9:00 San Francisco, 12:00 Midnight Singapore
View the webinar on Vimeo

Presenter: Pete Muir

Description: Large enterprise applications have a whole new set of software challenges: transactional throughput is tricky to scale elastically; large data volumes will slow network performance; and the need for a point of presence in multiple countries raises a raft of issues from latency to compliance.

This session demonstrates how JBoss AS7 and Cloudsoft's Monterey middleware work together through CDI to help resolve many of these challenges. You'll see how stateful processing units can be distributed and moved, around the world, to optimize an application's global footprint. You'll see how this agility -- known as "application mobility" -- is so efficient and lightweight that dynamic cloud-spanning is becoming a reality. And you'll see how easy it is to achieve, using Seam to wire the systems together.

High Octane Development: Automated Testing for Java EE6

Date: Wednesday, August 17, 2011
Time: 16:00 UTC, 12:00 Noon Boston, 9:00 San Francisco, 12:00 Midnight Singapore
Vimeo on Demand

Presenter: Andrew Rubinger

Description: In this session, we will address the missing link in Enterprise Java development: simple, easy integration testing.

Unit tests and mock objects will only take you so far; the only answer which truly ensures that all components are playing nicely is a comprehensive integration suite. Unfortunately, writing integration tests has historically involved manual setup of a heavy, cumbersome test harness. That's time lost, but it doesn't have to be anymore.

Here we will introduce Arquillian, a powerful container-oriented testing framework layered atop TestNG and JUnit. Arquillian manages your runtime, abstracting out deployment and allowing you to focus on real test logic.

  • Transparent container lifecycle management
  • Declarative deployments
  • Test Enrichment (Dependency injection into tests)
  • In-container test execution

All examples will be powered by the new lean offering from the JBoss Community: Application Server 7. Attend this webinar to learn how the simplified component model of Java EE6 can be applied to testable development.

Presenter Bio: Andrew Rubinger is an advocate for and speaker on testable enterprise Java development, author of "Enterprise JavaBeans 3.1" from O'Reilly Media. Member of the JBoss Application Server development team and technical lead of the ShrinkWrap project. Proudly employed by JBoss / Red Hat.

Spring into JBoss

Date: June 2, 2010
The webinar was archived so you can view it here:
Vimeo On Demand and Webex On Demand

Description: For Spring users, the JBoss Application Server has been for a long time a popular choice for running enterprise applications. Its open microcontainer architecture allows you to build JBoss-specific extensions that allow a deeper integration with the runtime. This is the main focus of the Snowdrop project, whose 1.0 release was in October 2009. The first part of the presentation will discuss the new developments in Snowdrop 1.1 and 2.0, which will be released in the Summer of 2010 and which focus on Spring 3.0 and the new features of JBoss AS 6. We will discuss things such as the introduction of a new, micro-container centric deployer, as well as support for JBoss-driven AOP, and others.

With Java EE 6 support, new specifications and features have been added, such as JSR-299 Contexts and Dependency Injection that offers a rich, powerful, standardized environment for developing web applications. The reference implementation for this specification is developed by Red Hat under the name of Weld and included in JBoss AS 6. For the architect and developer, the challenge of adopting a new standard is mainly adapting existing code to use it. So, for Spring-oriented environments, the problem is not one of choice (“should I use Spring or CDI”), but one of integration (“how do I use them together”). The second part of this presentation will discuss Weld/Seam extensions provided for integrating with Spring and how can existing Spring code benefit from the use of CDI in that context.

Presenter: Marius Bogoevici is a Senior Software Engineer with Red Hat, leading the JBoss AS/Spring integration efforts. He is currently the lead for Snowdrop, a utility package that contains JBoss-specific extensions to the Spring Framework. He makes regular contributions to Weld, the JSR-299 Reference Implementation.
Marius has an extensive experience of more than 14 years developing and architecting software systems. Prior to joining Red Hat, he was a Spring consultant with SpringSource. He is a contributor to the Spring Integration enterprise integration framework and co-author of “Spring Integration in Action”.


Maven Repository Magic

Date: June 16, 2010
The webinar was archived so you can view it here:

Description: A well organized and well maintained artifact repository is an important step to have simple and reliable builds and releases.  A basic setup using a web server and a directory tree is no-longer sufficient for many organizations.  As the organization's Maven repository grows, a fully featured Maven repository manager can provide things like staging, validation, and simpler build configuration.

This session will discuss the challenges faced when creating a Maven repository infrastructure for your organization.  The basic concepts of a Maven repository will be introduced, followed by a discussion with several examples of how Maven is configured to use repositories.  The limitations and potential problems of a basic setup will be discussed, including how these problems might be solved using a Maven repository manager.  The JBoss Community Maven repository will be examined including the problems with the previous setup, how the repositories were rebuilt to address these problems, and what are the plans for the future of the JBoss repository.

The goal of this session is to explain the basic concepts of Maven repositories and repository managers, compare the advantages and disadvantages of several possible repository configurations, and provide enough information so that you can begin desiging your own repository infrastructure.

It is recommended that attendees have at least a basic understanding of Maven and a general knowledge of Java and related software.

Presenter: Paul Gier is a senior software engineer at Red Hat.  He is responsible for the build of the JBoss Application Server and for the JBoss community Maven repositories.  He provides general build support to many projects in the JBoss community and is a committer and member of the PMC on the Apache Maven project.  Prior to joining Red Hat he developed software for the healthcare and banking industries and was a Java instructor for Sun Microsystems.  Paul and his family reside in Austin, TX.

Description: The mod-cluster module, developed by JBoss, has many advantages over mod-jk, such as dynamic addition and removal of cluster nodes and web applications, and dynamic load balancing between httpd and the different JBoss servers.

First, we'll present the architecture of mod-cluster and its advantages over mod-jk. Then we'll show how to configure mod-cluster and JBoss. Finally, we'll demo a dynamic cluster, running in the cloud (EC2). The demo includes adding new JBoss servers to a running system (e.g. to cover load spikes), removing running instances, and adding and removing web applications.

Attendees will walk away with an understanding of what mod-cluster is and how to use it.

Vimeo On Demand and Webex On Demand

Description: This webinar will provide in-depth coverage of several new JSF 2.0 features.  It will also ask of each : Is the current solution sufficient?  Where is it lacking?  We'll then review how RichFaces 4 is enhancing JSF to solve these issues by prototyping functionality for the future of JSF.

The JSF 2.0 specification (JSR-314) addresses a substantial number of long standing pain points that JSF users have just come to accept as a hard knock life.  JSF 2.0 is a true contender amongst web frameworks.  It is not the end of the story though, and thankfully the expert group has once again left the door open for projects like RichFaces to extent, prototype and improve the specification.  RichFaces lead the industry with ajax support for JSF1.2, played a significant role in the development of JSF 2.0, and continues to lead and prototype the future of the JSF standard for the RIA ecosystem.

Whether you are a new JSF/RichFaces user who wants to find out more about the latest developments in the specification or an old hat with an issue or two on your mind, this session has something to offer you!

Presenter: Jay Balunas is a JBoss core developer, and project lead for the RichFaces project.  He is the coauthor of the DZone RichFaces Reference Card, and a member of the extended JSR-314 (JSF 2.0) expert group.  He is also a commiter on several other open source projects such as Seam, and Weld.  Jay has been architecting and developing enterprise applications for over ten years specializing in web tier frameworks, UI design, and integration.

Jay has spoken at several conferences such as JSFSummit, JBoss World, and various JUGs on topics including JSF 2.0, RichFaces, and Seam. Jay blogs about RichFaces, JSF 2.0, and other RIA technologies at http://in.relation.to/Bloggers/Jay


Arquillian Invasion: Reducing Enterprise Testing to Child's Play

Date: August 18, 2010
This webinar has been archived so you can view it here:
Vimeo On Demand and Webex On Demand

Description: You know you should test. You know that testing forces you to consider API design. That it proves your implementation, and that it documents for other maintainers its use. That it future-proofs you during refactoring but with too many moving parts, it's hard to fault even the most savvy developer for giving up. Tests have been slow to write, slow to execute, and push back our deadlines.
It doesn't have to be that way anymore.
In this session, we'll explore techniques to skip the build and stay within the IDE, reduce boilerplate by harnessing an annotation-driven framework, and hook into some common embeddable EE containers from a plain JavaSE environment.

Presenter: As Senior Software Engineer at Red Hat, Andrew Lee Rubinger is primarily tasked with development of the JBoss Community's EJB 3.x implementation. He is the author of the upcoming “Enterprise JavaBeans 3.1, 6th Edition” from O’Reilly Media, and his role as Core Developer within the JBoss Application Server is supplemented by leading the EmbeddedAS and ShrinkWrap projects. His work can be followed via http://twitter.com/ALRubinger or in more colorful format on his blog at http://exitcondition.alrubinger.com.

Aslak Knutsen is currently a Senior Software Engineer for the JBoss Seam team at Red Hat, Inc. where he is the project lead for Arquillian and works on projects such as ShrinkWrap, Weld and Seam 3.
