    Title:

    Performance Improvement of Jboss EAP 4.3 Platform and other Jboss Platforms

     

    Target Audience:

    Any one who wants to architect an globe distributed enterprise env and want to achieve the optimum performance

     

    Abstract:

    One of the principle objectives of this endeavour was to increase the performance of the overall system without touching the code and to formulate a strategy in which we can utilize the best practice provided by Apache, Red Hat Jboss, Sun JDK and various other distributed components. This white paper provides an in-depth knowledge of how to increase the performance of the system without going into the complexity of redoing the code.

     

    During the last few years J2EE/JavaEE based applications have largely spread over our networks. Our Jboss EAP 4.3/ J2EE platform uses a distributed multi tiered application model for enterprise applications. Application logic is divided into components according to function, and the various application components that make up a J2EE application are installed on different machines depending on the tier in the multi tiered like
    • Hand held, Smart phones,Client-tier components run on the client machine.
    • Web-tier components run on the J2EE server.
    • Business-tier components run on the J2EE server.
    • Enterprise information system (EIS)-tier software runs on the EIS server.
    Taking this distributed component into preview this white paper works as a baseline for Jboss EAP 4.3 J2EE/ Java EE platform in NBC Universal and provide guideline for the performance counters from the core infrastructure components, application server, webserver, java engine.

    Biometrics for Global Web Authentication: an Open Source Java/J2EE-Based Approach

     

    Target Audience:

    JavaEE, SSO, Enterprise, Architects, Security.

     

    Abstract:

    J2EE based Web applications have largely spread over our multiple networks/VLAN over the last couple of years. Thus it becomes essential for the applications often need authentication across the multiple networks. Taking this point into consideration we have been working on integrating biometric verification capabilities using open source single sign on techniques. Going with this thought that the source code can be shared and can be used for multiple purposes and can enrich the knowledge of the entire biometric society we chosen a widely accepted Java-based open-source system for web authentication called Central Authentication Service (CAS) using the Java Authentication and Authorization Services (JASS).

    Title:

    Get your BPM ducks in a row - preparing for migration to jBPM5

     

    Target  Audience:

    JEE, Architects, Process Architects, BPM developers, JBoss developers

     

    Abstract:

    With the recent shift to unify the projects  DroolsFlow and jBPM4.x into jBPM5, we are all wondering what the impact  could be to our existing BPM projects. What is new in jBPM5? What does  one need to be aware of? What does one need to prepare in advance for a  move to this new platform? All these questions and more will be  discussed in this session.

    First, we will take a look at what has happened historically within jBPM  to get us where we are now, with jBPM3.x and jBPM4.x versions. We will  discuss DroolsFlow in relation to the path towards jBPM5. Next we will  take a look at the Request for Comments (RFC) that was put into the  community and resulting architecture for the future of BPM within JBoss  Middleware. This leads to a closer look at the resulting jBPM5 road map  and how this will relate to the JBoss Enterprise BPM products moving  towards the future.

    Finally we will provide a plan for positioning your existing Enterprise  jBPM projects for the eventual move towards jBPM5. This will cover the  architectural layers involved, a look at the tooling being created for  this and steps you can take to ensure a smooth transition moving into  your jBPM future.

    Target audience:

    Architects, system admins

     

    Abstract:

    The mod-cluster module, developed by JBoss, has many advantages over
    mod-jk, such as dynamic addition and removal of cluster nodes and web
    applications, and dynamic load balancing between httpd and the
    different JBoss servers.

     

    First, we'll present the architecture of mod-cluster, and its
    advantages over mod-jk.

     

    Then we'll show how to configure mod-cluster and JBoss.

     

    Finally, we'll demo a dynamic cluster, running in the cloud (EC2). The
    demo includes adding new JBoss servers to a running system (e.g. to
    cover load spikes), removing running instances, and adding and
    removing web applications.

    Title:

    Applying JBoss Drools in Assistive Technology

     

    Target Audience:

    Architects, Developers, End-users

     

    Abstract

    JBoss Drools has become a powerful rules and Complex Event Processing (CEP) inference engine. Drools Fusion and Drools-Flow coupled with other Drools modules provide an integral development and implementation framework to numerous discrete-state event-driven systems.

     

    It is believed that these benefits of  Drools can also be applied to “non-typical” applications in the fields such as manufacturing control, advanced robotics, as well as human-machine interactions which we are focusing on in this presentation.


    Assistive Technology (AT) deals with creation of systems to be used by people with disabilities. Although multitudes of AT services and devices for computer access are available on the market today, they are often limited in their ability to optimally convey vast variations of individual user capabilities and needs, as well as to cope with several disturbances and uncertainties during interaction. It is widely recognized that a holistic approach integrating multi-channel communication, intelligent control and user feedback is required to solve these problems.

     

    The main objective of this presentation to investigate and understand how Drools may be embedded as a general interface and control system in AT devices. Based on a computer mouse-control use case for people with severe motor impairments, we evaluate the benefits of using Drools considering flexibility, scalability, reusability, and real-time control performance. The presentation also focuses on how Drools can improve robustness of the control of AT services  based on multi-channel events filtering and aggregation, as well as looks  at possible  integration of fuzzy control.

    Title:

    Advanced JCR Persistence in the GateIn Portal Framework.

     

    Target audience:

    Architects, Developers

     

    Abstract:

    The GateIn Portal comes with a built in Java Content Repository server for managing pages, layouts and portlets. The

    Chromattic open source project was initiated to develop the GateIn object model persistence in a JCR server. Beyond

    natively powering the heart of GateIn, Chromattic can be used to rapidly develop rich and complex JCR based applications.

     

    Chromattic is an object mapper framework that uses JCR as persistence layer. It provides a natural support for various JCR

    features, thanks to the usage of Java Annotations. Annotations declare which and how classes are mapped to nodes, turning

    any repository node into a Java object. It provides important features to JCR development such as type safety and object

    orientation which are lacking when the JCR native interfaces are used. Moderns IDE most used features like code completion

    and refactoring are de facto available when developing Chromattic applications.

     

    The key concepts of Chromattic will be presented, through the development of a simple Chromattic application in

    real-time. This sample application will be made available to the attendees so they can use the sample code as a starting

    point. This advanced technical session will show:

     

    • How to integrate Chromattic with a modern IDE using a Maven-based build
    • How to deploy a Chromattic application in GateIn
    • How to connect to and manage a repository server

     

    Several advanced features of Chromattic will be highlighted, to demonstrate the power of the framework

    Title:

    Executing BPMN 2.0 with jBPM 3 or (at your option) any later version


    Target Audience:

    Process Analysts, Process Engineers, Architects, Developers


    Abstract:

    Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) has become the most important  industry standard for BPM. Recently, the OMG finalized version 2.0 of  the specification, which introduces lots of features for modeling  executable processes. As a result, many BPM vendors started to build  process engines that can directly execute BPMN processes. However, most  of these BPMN engines including the Open Source JBoss jBPM 4 and 5 are  not yet completed. This leads to the situation that todays projects can  not yet adopt BPMN and are forced to invest into technologies, which  might be outdated soon.

     

    To avoid this scenario, we explored the idea of transforming BPMN  2.0 process models into jBPM 3 process definitions and it turned out  that the languages have enough similarities to make such a mapping  possible. With this approach, projects can leverage both a superior  modeling language and a mature execution environment, as jBPM 3.x has  been stable for many years and is still the only version officially  supported by JBoss. Later, when the BPMN 2.0 engines become ready for  production, one can execute the created BPMN 2.0 processes directly on  them.

     

    But what happens to all the Java code attached to a process?  Normally, that code is bound to the APIs of the particular engine in  use, e.g., when accessing data objects of a process instance. To be able  to reuse the Java code, we developed a so-called Process Engine  Abstraction Layer (PEAL). It hides the details of an engine's API and  also uses BPMN 2.0 terminology. This turned out to be a perfect risk  mitigation strategy for projects that have to become productive right  now with current stable technology and still want to keep option for  future technology updates open.
