Agenda

Sessions by topic: Red Hat JBoss Data Grid

Application and data integration

This track provides overview and deep dive sessions that cover the products, features, and technologies for datacenter modernization and consolidation. Example topics include: storage migration, performance optimization, management of data in distributed applications, and middleware integration. Attendees will learn how to enable lines of business to rapidly respond to business events in an automated manner, automate rules-driven business processes, and integrate applications, data, and embedded devices across all cloud environments.

Replication between datacenters with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid

Tristan Tarrant — Principal software engineer, Red Hat
Divya Mehra — Principal product manager, Red Hat

The datacenters of today’s global businesses are often located in various sites around the world. To help ensure their safety, the data is frequently replicated both within and between sites. This cross-site replication can be challenging, as links between sites are often bandwidth-constrained and have high latency.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Learn how to store data redundantly across multiple sites with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid’s cross-site replication.
  • Gain an understanding of the architecture and main use cases of cross-site replication architecture.
  • Learn about the latest features and future roadmap for Red Hat JBoss Data Grid and weigh in on our plans.

Topics: Clustering, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, Scalability

Application development

This track covers application development tools and technologies. Example topics include: best practices, methodologies, and techniques for building applications in C, C++, Java, PHP/LAMP, Ruby, Node.js, and many other commonly used developer tools and languages, and new development approaches such as Platform-as-a-Service. Attendees will also learn how the tools that build, run, and scale applications are evolving.

The future of middleware: Java, enterprise engineering, and Fuse

Host:

Mark Little — Vice president of Engineering, Red Hat

Panelists:

Rob Davies — Director, Software Engineering, Red Hat
Tim Fox — Senior principal software engineer, Red Hat
Jason Greene — Senior principal software engineer, Red Hat
Pete Muir — Senior principal software engineer, Red Hat

Red Hat has mature middleware stacks in the enterprise engineering, service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process management (BPM), and data spaces. Some of these are standards related, while some standards don’t yet exist.

What does the future hold for these stacks as mobile, cloud, and the Internet of things continue to gather momentum? What will happen as new languages are added to the JVM (almost) daily, and the lines between technologies continue to blur?

In this interactive session, our panel of experts will discuss their personal visions for the future of Red Hat JBoss Middleware. We would also like to hear from you, so come prepared to talk about your concerns, requirements, and interests for the future.

Topics: Big data, Development tools, Flexibility, Interoperability, Mobile, Performance, Portability, Red Hat JBoss A-MQ, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Fuse, Red Hat JBoss Fuse Service Works, Reliability, Scalability

Red Hat JBoss Middleware acceleration products roadmap

Rich Sharples — Director of product management, Red Hat

Building and managing high-performance applications and services in support of the business is a critical part of every enterprise IT organization.

In this session, we’ll look at the roadmaps for the Red Hat JBoss Middleware products that enable customers to develop better web and mobile applications faster, deploy across any environment, and scale with fewer data bottlenecks. You’ll gain a better understanding of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, Red Hat JBoss Operations Network, and Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio.

Topics: OpenShift by Red Hat, Red Hat Cloud, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, Red Hat JBoss Operations Network

Maximizing performance with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid

Filippo Crea — IT Manager, SIA
Andrea Sormanni — Solutions architect, SIA
Edoardo Schepis — Solution architects manager, Red Hat

SIA is European leader in the design, creation, and management of technology infrastructures and services for financial and central institutions, corporations, and public administration bodies.

After evaluating various options to reduce the latency of relational database access, SIA selected a solution based on JBoss Data Grid that maximized the performance and the scalability of the entire financial market application.

In this session, you’ll learn how a performance issue can become an opportunity. Learn how SIA’s implementation solved its performance concerns and has evolved its data storage architecture without significant impact on application core functionalities and codebase.

Topics: Performance, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, Red Hat JBoss Middleware

Emerging technologies

This track features sessions covering the trends and strategies driving the future of enterprise computing. Example topics include: big data, mobile, software-defined storage, and intelligent systems. Attendees will be among the first to know about what's coming from Red Hat and how to better plan for shifts in the IT landscape.

Hibernate OGM: Talking to NoSQL in Red Hat JBoss EAP

Gunnar Morling — Senior software engineer, Red Hat
Sanne Grinovero — Senior software engineer, Red Hat

With new NoSQL stores arriving to the market frequently, choosing the right datastore can be a tough challenge. Each store provides its own low-level APIs, and migrating from one store to another is anything but simple.

Hibernate Object/Grid Mapper (OGM) provides easy access to NoSQL stores via the well-known Java Persistence API (JPA). Java developers who know how to use JPA also know how to access their favorite NoSQL stores.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How Hibernate OGM maps common JPA constructs to key-value, document, and graph datastores.
  • How to work with JPA on top of datastores such as Infinispan, MongoDB. and Neo4j and switch between them as a matter of configuration.
  • How to query for data using JP-QL and native queries.
  • How to use Hibernate OGM to access MongoDB on Red Hat’s PaaS, OpenShift by Red Hat.

This session is code-focused, with at least half the time spent coding and running tests in Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio. You’ll leave the session with a solid understanding of when to use (or not use) Hibernate OGM to handle everyday NoSQL challenges.

Topics: Big data, Clustering, Development tools, Flexibility, JBoss Community, OpenShift by Red Hat, Performance, Portability, Projects, Red Hat Cloud, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, Reliability, Scalability
