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.

Introduction to CDI

Pete Muir — Principal Software Engineer, Red Hat

JSR-299: Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE is an elegant set of new services for Java that draws upon ideas from JBoss Seam and Google Guice. While many of the features provided (dependency injection, contextual lifecycle, configuration, interception, event notification) are familiar, the innovative use of meta-annotations is uniquely expressive and typesafe.

In this session, Pete Muir will briefly introduce the Java EE landscape and use a simple example to illustrate how JSR-299: Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE enhances the Java EE programming model.

Topics: JBoss Community Projects, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, JBoss Enterprise Frameworks, JBoss Enterprise Web Platform
