Red Hat JBoss Data Grid & the Hibernate Suite: A Love Affair

Sanne Grinovero — Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat

Hibernate, a JBoss Community project, is the world’s most successful object relational mapper (ORM). Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, which is based on the JBoss Community project Infinispan, is a high-performance, transactional key/value store. These two very different technologies are pillars of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6; and there are many ways to mix them in an endless combination of configurations.

In this session, Sanne Grinovero, will discuss a few of the most effective ways these components have been integrated to solve real-world problems, including smarter caching, hybrid data stores, and state-of-the-art full-text and information extraction. He will also preview the future of Hibernate object grid mapper (OGM).

Location: Room 208

Topics: Big data, BPM, Clustering, Cost savings, Flexibility, Java development, JBoss Community projects, OpenShift by Red Hat, Performance, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, Red Hat JBoss Data Services Platform, Red Hat JBoss Frameworks, Reliability, Scalability

Mobile Makes Your Enterprise Go Boom (The Good or Bad Kind)

Jay Balunas — Mobile Platform Architect, Red Hat

This can be a good boom, or a bad boom. What determines the outcome may be trickier than you think, and enterprises today are burdened (or blessed) with new requirements for their developers and their infrastructures.

In this session, attendees will explore the latest in enterprise mobile development. They will learn how to plan ahead and minimize risk. The discussion will cover options for applications and infrastructures, such as on-premise or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), mobile, web, hybrid, and native, and even integration options for existing services.

Jay Balunas will discuss the Red Hat offerings (e.g., OpenShift by Red Hat, JBoss Developer Studio, etc.) and JBoss Community projects (e.g., AeroGear, Forge, JBoss Application Server, etc.) that can help make mobile development explode (in the good way). He will also walk attendees through a typical enterprise application, discussing backend functionality (that can be accessed across many clients) and host requirements on JBoss Application Server and OpenShift by Red Hat.

And on the client side, attendees will explore AeroGear and its SDKs for iOS, Android, Cordova, and web-based mobile applications.

Location: Room 208

Birds of a Feather

Mobile & Rich Client Smack Down

Jay Balunas — Mobile Platform Architect, Red Hat

Come back for round two of the popular (and always fun) rich client smack down! Some of our well-known contenders are back: HTML5/JDF, RichFaces/JSF, and Errai/GWT. But this year, we’re bringing in a few more contenders like Cordova, iOS, and Android with AeroGear. We’re also opening the field to any that want to throw their hats in the ring.

In this session, industry experts from Red Hat, W3C, and the community will show why their technologies are the present and future of mobile and rich client applications. They will discuss high-level concerns like trends in client technology frameworks and core enterprise concerns like security, off-line support, and data synchronization.

This is not a sit-and-listen kind of session. At the beginning of the session, sign up for a five-minute slot to push your own favorite choice. We want to hear from you, so come with your questions and comments about directions, best practices, what you have struggled with, etc. We’ll also be polling the audience and will have some special treats for those attending.
