Are you ready for holidays? We are indeed, but before that, we are glad to invite you to our next event, focused on Wildfly next 17th of July. This time we have organized a different type of event: a hangout. This time, Arun Grupta, Developer Advocacy at Red Hat, is going to give us an overall view and introduce some of the exciting new features of this application server remotely. In addition, we are going to a new place on which we expect to organize many more events: thanks to Softonic, we will arrange this event in their beautiful offices. Did you like it? We do! They are amazing!
The format of the talk will be as follows: 30 mins overview of WildFly 8 + 30 mins deep dive on some specific topic(s) via Google Hangout. In summary, we hope this session will provide you an overview of all these features using several live demos.
WildFly 8 (née JBoss Application Server) is Red Hat's open source Java EE 7 compliant application server. It contains robust implementations of WebSocket, Batch, JSON, Concurrency, JMS2, JAX-RS 2, CDI 1.1, and all Java EE 7 technologies. Undertow is the new cutting-edge web server in WildFly 8 and is designed for maximum throughput and scalability, including environments with over a million connections. The number of ports is reduced used by multiplexing protocols over HTTP using HTTP Upgrade.
Role Based Access Control support organizations with separated management responsibilities and restrictions. Roles represent different sets of permissions such as runtime operation execution, configuration areas that can read or written, and the ability to audit changes and manage users. In addition a new restricted audit log can be enabled including the ability to offload to a secure syslog server.
WildFly also provides a "core" distribution that is ideal for framework authors that want to build their own application runtime using the powerful WildFly 8 architecture. And of course, NetBeans, IntelliJ, and Eclipse allow WildFly to be used for development, deployment, and debugging.
