You're browsing the 2014 Summit site. Check out what we're doing this year.
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.
You’re hearing a lot about big data these days. And big data and the technologies that store and process it, like Hadoop, aren’t just new data silos. You might be looking to integrate big data with existing enterprise information systems to gain better understanding of your business. You want to take informed action.
During this session, we’ll demonstrate how Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization can integrate with Hadoop through Hive and provide users easy access to data. You’ll learn how Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization:
We’ll also provide typical uses cases and examples and a demonstration of the integration of Hadoop sentiment analysis with sales data.

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.
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

More than 5 billion people spend an average of 2 hours a day using their mobile phones to bank, shop, reserve hotel rooms, socialize, and more. This challenges companies to migrate their traditional Java EE applications in order to address the demands of mobile and tablet users.
In this session, you’ll learn about some of the approaches to migrate a traditional Java EE application to mobile using specifications like RESTful, Context and Dependency Injection (CDI), Enterprise Java Beans (EJB3), and messaging from the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 6 for server-side services. You’ll also hear about various choices of client-side technologies, which depend on key differentiators between mobile native, mobile web, and mobile hybrid applications.

As developers become more excited about features and programming models provided by Java EE, migration projects are on the rise.
In this session, we’ll explore a migration of a Spring application running on bare Apache Tomcat to the Java EE 6 programming model running on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6. We will focus on our approach to application migration, as well as 2 important projects—Arquillian and Windup.
You’ll learn how Arquillian’s testing platform instills confidence in the components and services, and how Windup lets you analyze the code base in an automated manner, allowing you to concentrate on the difficult parts requiring manual intervention.

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.
As mobile continues to revolutionize client development, application platforms need to include mobile-specific technologies like push notifications, offline support, and data synchronization. But the idea that you need completely new technologies such as a mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) is misguided. Developers need to update existing platforms to include capabilities, tools, and techniques to meet the mobile challenge.
In this session, you’ll:
We’ll discuss the Red Hat projects and technologies that make this possible, including AeroGear, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, and OpenShift by Red Hat. And you’ll hear how our plans for mobile in 2014 will help you mobilize your modern middleware.

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:
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

How do some of the largest IT organizations around the world migrate, configure, and manage their Red Hat JBoss Middleware installations? What are the steps they take to factor in security, performance, and tuning to ensure they get the most out of their application server tiers?
In this session, we’ll describe how Red Hat’s own IT department migrated its existing Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4 and 5 infrastructures to version 6. We’ll reveal how the team followed industry-wide best practices–under a tight deadline–and used open source tools to configure and manage the company’s new installations.
Looking to make the jump to the cloud? We’ll also illustrate how these same tools and concepts can be used to prepare, configure, and manage Red Hat JBoss Middleware installations within a cloud architecture. And with concrete examples and use cases you can use in your environment, you’ll learn best practices for:

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and Wildfly (the JBoss Community project previously known as “JBoss Application Server”) have redefined how people view Java EE and enterprise middleware. You don’t have to choose between lightweight and nimble or scalable and robust. These platforms deliver a lightweight core architecture with modular enterprises services; and they have allowed users to re-imagine what they can do with Java middleware.
As we move toward another major release of Red Hat JBoss EAP, we invite our community of users to the WildFly/EAP team to discuss the future of application platforms and help us shape the future.
