Sessions: Jboss Enterprise Data Services

Best Of JBoss World

Over the years, several session speakers have emerged as event celebrities and several subjects have emerged as must-see attractions, garnering standing-room-only crowds. This track serves as a home to their sessions.

Geographic Failover for JBoss Clusters

Bela Ban — Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat

In this session, Bela Ban will present a new feature in JBoss clustering clustering and failover between sites.

Consider this example: a site is a local cluster in NYC and to withstand catastrophic failures, such as a power outage, flooding, and fires, there is a second site in SFO where the data from NYC is backed up. This allows for NYC to be the primary site and SFO the backup, vice versa, both sites could be active at the same time, or a scenario where clients connect to NYC during NYC working hours, then migrate to SFO could be implemented. When an entire site fails, all clients connected to that site will fail over to the remote site.

In this session, Bela Ban will show the architecture of geographically separate clusters, describe how to configure them, and illustrate this new feature in a live demo. Attendees will leave this session with an understanding of what can be achived with geographic clustering and will understand how to configure clusters for geographic failover.

Enterprise Insights: JBoss World

This track will break down how open source can give your IT ecosystem a competitive edge. We'll show you why open source software is more secure, has a lower cost and higher value, is interoperable with thousands of ISVs, and is essential for the success and growth of your organization.

The JBoss Recipe: Heaps of Java & Middleware Seasoned with Open Source & Cloud

Ashesh Badani — Senior Director, JBoss Enterprise Middleware, Red Hat

It has been five years since JBoss became a part of the Red Hat family. While some has stayed the same, much has changed in the industry. Java has become more open than ever. Millions of developers and thousands of enterprises depend on Java everyday for simple web applications and complex low latency transaction processing. JBoss has transformed from supporting a single J2EE appplication server to providing a complete enterprise-class middleware portfolio.

What were the successes and challenges in that journey? How has the product set and open source market evolved? How has developer perception changed? What have been the business drivers and technology triggers? Who is the middleware competition? What is the future role for Java? Where will JBoss be five years from now? In this session, Ashesh Badani will try and address these and many more such questions.

Jumpstart Your SOA with JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform

Chuck Mosher — Principal Solutions Architect, Red Hat

Although the benefits of adopting a service-oriented architecture (SOA) are many, in practice enterprises experience major challenges in migrating their IT environments toward agile, SOA-based frameworks. Our experience has shown that one of the key stumbling blocks in SOA adoption is fundamental dealing with all the disparate data already present in the enterprise.

Analysts estimate that over 70 percent of the “services” in an SOA are actually data services. One of the reasons that this creates a challenge is because of the impedance mismatch between the different types of data: SOA-oriented data is for the most part XML-based, whereas the vast majority of data already present in the enterprise is in the form of relationally-structured data in a database.

In this session, Chuck Mosher will introduce JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform, an optional new add-on to JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform that addresses this challenge. JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform is based on the industry-leading data integration technology that Red Hat acquired from MetaMatrix in 2007. Now completely open source (based on the Teiid project at jboss.org/teiid), JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform is fully integrated with JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform and provides a powerful set of tools that elegantly solve one of the hardest problems in SOA development getting to the data.

This session will include:

  • A discussion about the overall design and architecture of the technology
  • An introduction to the tooling for rapidly creating data services
  • An overview of common data integration use cases/patterns
  • A live demo

Come and hear how to jumpstart your SOA with data services!

Applications in the Cloud? Now How Do I Integrate Them Into My Business?

Pierre Fricke — Director of Product Line Management, SOA Platforms, Red Hat
Ken Johnson — Product Manager, Red Hat

Over the past year, enterprises have been placing an increasing number of their applications and business services in the cloud to take advantage of the flexibility and scalability of the cloud model. However, other applications and business services remain behind the firewall or in gated communities for reasons of control, domain isolation, and culture.

More enterprises are developing strategies to integrate these applications and services, wherever they may be deployed, to support their specific, proprietary, and public business processes while enabling greater flexibility and business agility. That strategy increasingly centers on service-oriented architecture (SOA) integration and business process automation.

Join Pierre Fricke and Ken Johnson for this informative session and explore the progress since JBoss World 2010 in:

  • Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
  • How SOA and business process automation maximize the value of cloud and on-premise deployments
  • Benefits for the enterprise and its value chain
  • Hurdles that have been overcome

JPA on Infinispan: When PaaS Persistence Meets Java EE

Emmanuel Bernard — JBoss Platform Architect, Red Hat
Sanne Grinovero — Software Engineer, Red Hat

While PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) is all the buzz these days, determining how and where to store your data (e.g., in a data grid, via a new proprietary API)can be a challenge. JBoss users who are accustomed to easy persistence via Hibernate and JPA (Java Persistence API) might be wondering: what if Hibernate could store my data in a grid?

Hibernate Object/Grid Mapper (OGM) offers a JPA front end (object manipulation and JP-QL query) to applications while also storing and querying the data from a key/value grid, like Infinispan. In other words, OGM offers a familiar and well known API that benefits from the new scalability possibilities of distributed data grids like Infinispan. These possibilities include the ability to support existing applications using JPA.

In this session, Emmanuel Bernard and Sanne Grinovero will discuss how JBoss Enterprise Middleware is leveraging its existing technology to build an OGM . They will also touch on Hibernate Core (JPA), Hibernate Search (object search engine), Teiid (query federation engine), and Infinispan (distributed data grid) as these projects serve as the foundation for building an OGM. Emmanuel and Sanne will detail how the various bricks fit together, what the secret sauce is, and how to use the solution in your applications.

Cloudy Middleware

Mark Little — Senior Director Engineering, Middleware, Red Hat
Tobias Kunze — Senior Principal Software Engineer, Red Hat

At Red Hat, we’ve been working hard toward a broad and open cloud stack that covers everything from IaaS through PaaS to SaaS. Among these, PaaS will likely be of most interest to the JBoss developer. But what exactly is this “platform”? What am I, as a developer, going to code against? And what am I, with my operator hat on, going to monitor and manage?

In this session, Mark Little and Tobias Kunze will give attendees a look into the work that Red Hat has been doing around PaaS with community efforts such as SteamCannon and with product efforts such as the Makara platform, which Red Hat acquired last year.

Mark and Tobias will also demonstrate how you can develop your JBoss applications in the usual manner and then transparently migrate them to a JBoss-oriented PaaS using Makara. And they’ll show you how to set your applications to scale up and down based on evolving needs. They’ll also discuss where Red Hat is going with PaaS in the future.
