Making Portals Cool: The Compelling Advantages of a Portlet Bridge

Wesley Hales — Senior Developer, Red Hat

Portlet Bridges (JSR-301/329) have created a firestorm of welcomed publicity to portal technologies. In this session, Wesley Hales will show you how to leverage your existing investments in JavaServer Faces (JSF) and supporting technologies and put them to use within a portal environment.

Most JSF developers do not realize that their JSF application can be easily deployed to a portal with only two jars and an XML file. In this session, you will  learn more about the possibilities of a portal combined with JSF, JBoss Seam Framework, and RichFaces, as well as why you would even want to use one.

Attendees should have a basic understand of JSF and will leave with a new skill that can be added to their resumes.

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.

Topics: Cloud, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, JBoss Enterprise BRMS Platform, JBoss Enterprise Data Services, JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform, JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform, Red Hat Cloud

It's Important to Get Middleware Right

Clay Olbon — Senior Manager, Accenture
Steve Fisher — Senior Manager, Accenture

Hear two real-world middleware case studies from Accenture that feature leading edge, highly customizable, complex Red Hat implementations.

Redhat.com: Accenture is helping transform Red Hats online web presence, building a common portal and web content management environment to improve the customer experience. The redesigned site is being built on top of the latest version of JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform and JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform Site Publisher. This session will focus on some of the key innovations involved in creating a highly customized, fully content-managed web presence for a very large global site. Key topics will include: workflow customization using JBoss jBPM and internationalization/localization of content for multiple sites and languages.

Business rule management system on SOA: Accenture is helping an insurance client deliver a new strategic architecture to support quote, purchase, and mid-term adjustments through direct web, call centre, and aggregator channels. A key business requirement is agility and supporting the business to initiate change without requiring any IT involvement. This session will focus on how JBoss Enterprise BRMS (Business Rules Management System) was used as the underlying rules technology, and how Accenture is working with Red Hat to integrate the Rules Engine into the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) component of the architecture.

Topics: Java Development, JBoss Enterprise BRMS Platform, JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform, JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform, JBoss Enterprise Web Platform, JBoss Enterprise Web Server
