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.

Securing Applications with PicketLink

Pete Muir — Principal Software Engineer, Red Hat
Shane Bryzak — Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat

Security is the cornerstone of your application’s integrity and, consequently, you need to weave it throughout each layer, often in diverse ways. PicketLink, a JBoss Community project, allows you to evolve the security model of your application over time, keeping pace with the development cycle.

With PicketLink, you can start with a very simple configuration that applies an exclusive security blanket over the application, keeping out guests and establishing a basic identity for the user. You can then gradually mature the security infrastructure by adopting PicketLink’s declarative approach for defining fine-grained authorization rules that enforce contextual restrictions at the level of database records, database fields, object fields, and UI fragments.  And PicketLink IDM provides a comprehensive, pluggable identity management solution that enables you to manage your users and roles.

In this session, PicketLink experts will demonstrate how to use PicketLink to secure your web application. They will do so by showcasing TicketMonster, an online ticket broker that provides access to events via an online booking application.

A Guided Tour through a Middleware Tooling Wonderland

Max Rydahl Andersen — Senior Principal Engineer, Red Hat

Developers who create applications have a plethora of options when deciding which tools will help deliver their products on time. This plethora can make determining which tools actually help, and how the tools work together, difficult.

He will cover all the phases of application development, including project creation, feature specification, development, and debugging. Max will also tie together such tools as git, jira/bugzilla, OpenShift by Red Hat, Jenkins, FindBugs, PMD, Maven, and JRebel, which are all rooted and integrated in the flow of Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio.

After this session, attendees will better understand the tooling options that are available to them from Red Hat and the JBoss Community.

Ruby for the Enterprise with JBoss Torquebox

Jeremy Davis — Middleware Solution Architect, Red Hat

The popularity of the Ruby programming language is growing dramatically. Gartner predicts that 20% of the Global 2000 will use Ruby in application development by 2015. And Indeed.com reports a 5,500% growth of Ruby-related jobs over the past five years.

While this growth is fueled by Ruby on Rails, the revolutionary web framework, there are many challenges to adopting Ruby in the enterprise, including:

  • Communicating with legacy applications
  • Ruby’s unpredictable performance
  • Keeping machines patched

JBoss Torquebox and jRuby solve these problems. JBoss Torquebox leverages the innovative class loading in Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 to bring Ruby to the application server. And it does so in a way that both Rubyists and Java developers can understand.

In this session, attendees will gain the productivity of Ruby without losing their existing development assets or incurring the wrath of your operations team. This session goes from command line to a working enterprise application—using business rules, workflow, messaging, and full-text search in the process.

Attendees will build a human resources application using:

  • Ruby on Rails for the web interface
  • Red Hat JBoss BRMS for evaluating applicants
  • jBPM 5 to orchestrate the hiring process
  • JMS to integrate with external systems
  • Hibernate Search for full text search of candidates’ resumes
