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.

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. 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

Running a JBoss Cluster in the Cloud

Bela Ban — Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat

In the default clustering configuration, JBoss Enterprise Middleware uses IP multicasting for discovery and message sending. However, most clouds currently do not provide IP multicasting, so JBoss nodes running in the default clustering configuration cannot form a cluster in the cloud. (This can be changed by passing a simple system property to

In this session, Bela Ban will discuss how to configure a JBoss cluster to use TCP instead of IP multicasting. Specifically, he’ll look at using (1) a static configuration (including a list of server addresses), (2) an external lookup service, and (3) S3 to discovery the cluster nodes, while also discussing the pros and cons of each option.

To understand how these option work, attendees will take a close look at JBoss clustering, looking into the transport and discovery protocols of the JGroups framework. Bela will also discuss the knobs that we can adjust to speed up a cloud-based cluster.
