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.

Tools worth sharing: Take back your IDE with Forge

Lincoln Baxter III — Principal software engineer, Red Hat

How easily can you add your own custom tooling to your favorite integrated development environment (IDE)? JBoss Forge, a JBoss Community project, allows developers to add their own useful extensions to the tools they love and share them with others. JBoss Forge is not only a rapid application development tool, but a platform for creating reusable tools that can make you and your entire group more effective.

In this session, attendees will learn about:

  • The Forge add-on ecosystem, featuring many contributions from the JBoss and Java communities and beyond.
  • How to build an application with the Forge Core add-ons.
  • How to build an Forge add-on in 5 minutes, test it, run it in Eclipse, see it working in the command line without any changes, and embed it for re-use in a custom Java application.

After attending this session, you should feel familiar with Forge and the value it offers for rapid application development and operational efficiency improvement. You’ll also be able to use Forge to promote your own products, processes, and performance.

Topics: Development tools, JBoss Community, Projects, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, Red Hat JBoss Middleware
