JBoss World Labs: Choose your Adventure

10:20am - 12:20pm
Jim Tyrrell — Red Hat, Senior Solution Architect
Other JBoss Engineers — Red Hat

This is your opportunity to test drive any of the JBoss products! Attendees can choose one of the following technologies to focus on during the hands-on lab. Red Hat engineers will be supervising the sessions to guide you through the lab and answer any questions. All of the technologies listed will be offered in both of the JBoss lab sessions.

  • JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform with Site Publisher
    Attendees will have a chance to use JBoss Developer Studio to create a sample portlet and deploy it to the JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform 5 environment. They will also be able to create, edit, and deploy content. By the end of this session, attendees should feel confident in their abilities to run JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform with Site Publisher in their own environments.

  • JBoss Developer Studio with Seam/Hibernate Fundamentals
    Walk through the steps of going from a blank JBoss Developer Studio instance to a working CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) web application in moments. Learn how to test the generated artifacts, change the look and feel, inject security, create new pages, and more.

  • JBoss Developer Studio with Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)
    Walk though the steps of going from blank JBoss Developer Studio instances to various artifacts needed for development and deployment onto JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform. Explore how to complete content transformations, expose web services, consume/test web services via SOAP-UI, create custom actions, and learn about the various components of the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform.

  • Clustering Setup with JBoss Enterprise Middleware
    Learn how to use mod_cluster, Apache and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform to setup a robust cluster of JBoss instances. Explore various configuration options for each of the layers (Apache HTTPD, mod_cluster, and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.

  • JBoss Operations Network Setup and Management of JBoss
    Learn how to setup JBoss Operations Network Server and Agents to monitor running JBoss Enterprise Application Server instances on the network. Explore the GUI to learn its features and functions, setup alerts based on statistics reported to JBoss Operations Network, explore how to configure group wise actions, and learn other tips and tricks while using JBoss Operations Network.

  • Business Rules Management System Hands-On
    Explore the Business Rules Management System to learn how to create decision tables, domain specific language artifacts, test cases, packages, and more while also exploring how JBoss Enterprise BRMS can streamline tasks for business analysts. Typically business rules are coded into Java requiring extensive time, money, and effort to make even simple changes to the flow of an application. Learn how the BRMS can greatly speed up time-to-market.

  • JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform Hands-On
    Explore JBoss Enterprise Data Services platform to learn how to integrate various disparate data sources (XML, relational, and others) into a unified view of data giving you a single source of truth. In this lab, explore how to setup JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform for different data feeds, including databases, flat files, XML, and web services, and learn how to provide a unified schema/view of the data.

  • Red Hat Enterprise MRG Messaging Hands-On
    Learn how to setup Red Hat Enterprise MRG Messaging, creating exchanges and bindings. Then use the JCA adapter to publish messages and read messages. You will explore the different types of exchanges, and other capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise MRG Messaging.

  • Infinispan Hands-On
    Explore the Infinispan data grid capabilities to learn how to easily create a data grid. You will setup a data cache, add/remove entries, and use the REST client.

How to Write SELinux Policies

2:00pm - 4:00pm
Daniel Walsh — Principal Software Engineer, Red Hat

In this hands-on lab, Daniel Walsh will cover the basics of writing SELinux policy, and will demonstrate how to write policy for a confined daemon and a confined administrator.

Adopting Next-Generation Profiling & Tracing

4:30pm - 6:30pm
James Leddy — Technical Account Manager, Red Hat

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 offers world-class support in profiling and tracing. OProfile, a system profiler for Linux, will tell you where your code is spending its time. SystemTap, which provides infrastructure to simplify Linux information gathering, gives you all the power and flexibility dynamic tracing has to offer. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 expands on this functionality with the introduction of the performance profiler and the ftrace suite of tracing tools. These easy-to-use tools can be installed with minimal configuration.

In this session, James Leddy will provide an overview of what the performance profiler and ftrace suite of tracing tools can do. He will also explain how to profile an application to drive down latency and how to transition from conventional profiling and tracing tools.

Thursday

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization: Hands-on Lab

10:20am - 12:20pm
James Rankin — Senior Solution Architect, Red Hat
Jesse Stanley — Solution Architect, Red Hat
Miki Kenneth — Director of Product Management, Red Hat
Simon Grinberg — Product Manager, Red Hat

In this hands-on lab, attendees will use Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Servers and Desktops to:

  • Create high availability clusters

  • Create and manage virtual servers and virtual desktops
  • Use live migration to move virtual machines between hypervisors without any loss of service
  • Access virtual desktops through the SPICE remote rendering protocol
  • Create templates and rapidly deploy virtual machines using templating and thin provisioning
