Red Hat Launches The JBoss Way Initiative Designed to Improve Developer Productivity

RED HAT SUMMIT AND JBOSS WORLD 2012--Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the launch of a new initiative named The JBoss Way. The initiative is a development approach that provides a more productive and simple way to create modern applications. The JBoss Way introduces a new set of frameworks, tools and architectural designs focused on improving developer productivity in building modern applications for mobile, the cloud and more.

Innovations such as HTML5, mobile, web-browser eventing, Java EE 6, cloud deployment and in-container testing can be quickly and easily adopted as part of The JBoss Way. Red Hat has assembled and integrated technical advances from the open source community as part of JBoss Developer Studio 5 and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6, including Java EE 6, Arquillian, Hibernate 4, AeroGear, Errai, RichFaces, JBoss Forge, TorqueBox and Red Hat OpenShift. The combination of these technologies improves developer efficiency and provides technical capabilities that address modern application requirements, all with a cohesive architectural approach.

The JBoss Way directly addresses the challenges associated with the adoption and integration of new technologies by providing a clear path, recommended usage, and strong focus on enablement. Developers will find a large and growing variety of resources, including a complete series of tutorials, Maven archetypes, architectural guidance, screencasts, reference architectures and more than 50 quick-starts, enabling them to quickly adopt new innovations. A reference application, TicketMonster, has been created and highlights various architectural approaches. The JBoss Way is focused on providing developers with the latest open source innovations with a practical path for rapid and easy adoption.

Red Hat also announced general availability of JBoss Developer Studio 5, which makes it easy to start developing The JBoss Way. JBoss Developer Studio 5 contains multiple wizards, making it simple to start using the technology without the typical learning curve. JBoss Forge is embedded within the JBoss Developer Studio 5 and allows developers to realize immediate results without needing a complete understanding of the entire specification and configuration requirements of an unfamiliar programming model.

Additional features in the new release include: comprehensive CDI tooling, a browser simulator designed to mimic different mobile browsers and deep Maven integration. All of these are designed to enhance productivity and help developers build applications using JBoss Developer Studio 5.

Mark Little, senior director, Middleware engineering, Red Hat
“Since its beginning more than a decade ago, JBoss has been renowned for appealing to the Java middleware developer community. Over the past 10 years, through efforts such as Hibernate, JPA, Seam, CDI and JBoss Developer Studio, we've ensured that our focus on improving developer productivity has remained core to everything we do, including our work with the standards. Projects such as Drools, Switchyard, Errai and Infinispan take this emphasis beyond Java EE so that whatever your area of interest, JBoss tools offer the solutions you need to develop and deploy your applications. We care about developers and I believe we've shown that time and time again, with innovation throughout our projects and our products. We expect that the momentum we've built up is only going to increase through The JBoss Way initiative and collaborative projects.”

Paul Bakker, engineer, Luminus Consulting
“Java EE 6 has proven to be an ideal stack to build enterprise applications. The Java EE ecosystem is very large, however, it contains a lot of APIs and related tools. This might be overwhelming for new developers, making it hard to get started. The JBoss Way gives you guidance on how to structure your application, which tools to use and how to test your code to create standards-based enterprise applications. Two of the highlights of The JBoss Way are JBoss Forge and Arquillian. Forge is a tool that makes it trivial to set up your Maven-based project and add Java EE technology to it. Arquillian brings in-container integration tests to Java EE, which gives you the power to test all your code in an easy but realistic way.”
