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.

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

Trends in Cloud Computing: What You Need to Know

Gordon Haff — Cloud Evangelist, Red Hat

Cloud computing, in its varied forms, is now a well-established topic in the IT lexicon. But that doesn’t mean either the technology or the way it gets used and deployed is settled and static. In fact, as cloud computing gets applied to more and more real-world problems, the experience continually reveals new insights into both possibilities and potential pitfalls.

In this session, Gordon Haff will take you on a tour through how cloud computing is unfolding. What are some of its interesting uses? What’s working out differently than anticipated? What current topics are generating a lot of discussion? What trends are worth keeping an eye on?

Journey to the Cloud -- Do you have Directions?

Cal Hullihen — Cloud Solutions Architect, HP

Louis Carroll said, If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there. This is especially true when youre trying to embrace the cloud. Even with a great vehicle built upon Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization or Red Hat Cloud Foundations and HP Converged Infrastructure, if you dont have a comprehensive cloud roadmap to guide you, youre likely to end up someplace that will not meet  your IT or business needs and, even worse, youll take a lot of detours to get there.

Please join this session to learn how HP can help you build an actionable roadmap to the right destination for your organization and help you avoid potholes, roadblocks, and dead ends as you undertake your journey to the cloud. This session is designed for the senior IT or business leader looking to build a solid cloud strategy, design a private cloud solution, or speed up organizational alignment with objective capability analysis and planning.

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.
