  • Arquillian - The Extendable Enterprise Test Platform

    Arquillian is the missing link in Java EE development. Developers have long had to fend for themselves in the testing stage, burdened with bootstrapping the infrastructure on which the test depends. That's time lost, and it places a high barrier to entry on integration testing. Arquillian tears down that barrier. Arquillian is a container-oriented test framework. It picks up where unit tests leave off, targeting the integration of application code inside a real runtime environment. Just as Java EE 5 simplified the server programming model by providing declarative services for POJOs, Arquillian equips tests with container lifecycle management and enrichment. This talk will go behind the scenes of Arquillian, lift up the curtain and unveil the Extendable Enterprise Test Platform. We'll look at how you can take advantage of the test platforms infrastructure to fit your testing needs. We'll show you how to write extension so you can: - Give your test classes new capabilities - Manipulate the packaging process - Hide testing framework integration complexity - Integrate into the test runners lifecycle - Integrate with existing test runners - Create your own Container

  • Middleware Everywhere - Ready for Mobile and Cloud

    by Mark Little

    The traditional role of middleware in the data center has been challenged to expand and meet the ubiquitous computing demands becoming more prevalent. The way applications are built, deployed, integrated and managed must accommodate the rapidly evolving mobile and cloud paradigms, without sacrificing security or performance.

    Open Standards, and a more agile stewardship of the Java Community Process will enable developers, architects and IT executives increase return on their existing IT investment and spur innovation in next generation application environments.

    Please join Dr. Mark Little, Sr. Director Middleware Engineering, as he discusses Red Hat's vision for how JBoss Enterprise Middleware will drive social, mobile and cloud computing.

    At 9:45am to 10:30am, Tuesday 1st November

  • Racing JBoss AS7 bootup across clouds

    by Adrian Cole

    Developers want to release code as fast as possible. Compute clouds want developers to release code to them. This is a story about how these two goals converge.

    The jclouds project formerly used JBoss AS6 to perform functional testing of compute clouds. We felt running an application server is a pretty useful model for what developers look to achieve. When we moved to JBoss AS7, we were expecting a relatively smooth update. In reality, we found a surprising performance story!

    This presentation will review performance considerations when deploying application servers across multiple cloud providers. We'll discuss to install, bootstrap, and reboot time that affect your agility with real numbers on over a dozen compute clouds like Amazon EC2.

    This is a no-hype talk: when you leave, you'll know how to make your own jclouds tests to test your cloud deployment of choice.
