Getting the best out of your Spring applications owes a lot to running them in a performant runtime. JBoss EAP 6, based on JBoss AS7, is a powerful environment that provides a rich set of services available to the developers. Developers must understand the latest advancements of both Spring and JBoss AS7 in order to get the best experience while combining the two.
There are multiple ways in which a Spring developer can benefit from the overall goodness that is JBoss AS7. On one hand, you can use it as a generic Java EE 6 application server and stay up-to-date with the latest enterprise Java specification, while continuing to use your favorite development model. However, for advanced users, taking advantage of features which are unique to JBoss EAP, such as class scanning, modular classloading or dedicated extensions is what can provide a competitive edge. Both angles are covered by this presentation.
Marius will guide attendees through the best practices of building applications using Spring 3.1, JBoss EAP6, as well as JBoss-specific extensions contained in the Snowdrop project.
