Java Architects, Designers and Developers who want better understanding of the JBoss architecture and the way to configure JBoss web and enterprise applications.


Having a basic understanding of JEE 6


The goal of this course is to provide the participant with an overview of the JBoss Server and its configuration possibilities. This will be done from the viewpoint of a Java Developer who needs to configure JBoss for developing and deploying enterprise applications.


Classroom training with hands-on exercises.


The JBoss Application Server is a popular open source platform for enterprise Java development, and is used in production for many enterprise applications. Most Java developers however, do not have a complete understanding of its inner workings. When browsing the contents of its installation directory and when opening up its configuration files, Java coders can be overwhelmed by the number of options and possibilities.

In this course, participants will gain all the knowledge they need to understand, install and configure the JBoss application server. They will explore the different options available to configure their enterprise applications. The course includes the manual configuration, as well as the use of the new Command Line Interface and Web Admin. While the server is traditionally started in a standalone mode for development, the course will show the advantages of using a domain as centralized configuration of a set of server nodes in production. For optimal performance, participants will explore the setup of a cluster and load balancing. Participants will perform multiple exercises on JEE 6 application scenarios, which will let them configure several aspects of the application.

At the end of the course, participants will no longer consider JBoss as a black box, but will be able to use the server effectively and efficiently for enterprise development and deployment.
