Dear *,

Recently, I tried the JBPM 5.2.0 – JBoss Business Process Management – web management console and I had an application crash when I selected in the left menu the item “Process overview”.

Fortunately there is a solution to that problem which is to add the following line in the part of the build.xml file included in jbpm-installer_5.2.0 directory :

<!– Install reporting AS7 –>
<target name=”install.reporting.into.jboss7″ depends=”check.birt.as7″ if=”birt.download” >
<mkdir dir=”${install.home}/birt”/>
<unzip src=”${install.home}/lib/birt-runtime-${birt.version.as7}.zip”
dest=”${install.home}/birt”/>
<copy todir=”${install.home}/target/jbpm-gwt-console-server-war/WEB-INF/lib”>
<fileset dir=”${install.home}/birt/birt-runtime-${birt.version.as7}/ReportEngine/lib”>
<include name=”*/.jar”/>
<exclude name=”**/org.apache.commons.codec_1.3.0.v201101211617.jar”/>
</fileset>
</copy>

Dear *,

Picture 1:

Imagine you have developed a successful web application built on traditional architecture which is visited by a consequent amount of users.

However, you are victim of you success, and more and more users are connected to you site.

Now, you are confronted to the overload of your application and your users tend to be unhappy due to the bad response time of your application.

Picture 2 :

So, in  order to fix this you decided to change your application a little bit and then add some cache to it.

During a certain period of time, that clever trick worked. But, you still had the same problem.

Picture 3 :

Well, you had then the idea to increase the number of Application Servers to resolve that problem.

Nonetheless, with that decision you had to complexity your application.  Nevermind, you had to increase the performance otherwise you were going to lose your customers.

Picture 4:

But the problem still remained and you are now convinced the bottleneck is related to you old heavy database.

So you have no other choice than buy another database licence and its annual maintenance fees.

The MAJOR problem here is that is very very expensive.

Picture 5 :

Anyway, you decide adding more databases is not your only option.
You finally decide to implement a data grid in your environment in order to fix that problem without exploding your allocated budget.

If you are interesting by the subject  then I am going to do a presentation/introduction about “JBoss Data Grid” in Belgium in April 2012.
If your company or you are based in BeNeLux and are interested by this presentation, just let me know and I will try to arrange a meeting for you.

N.B.: JBoss Data Grid 6 beta provides:

  • A schema-less key value store: Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 6 beta is a NoSQL data store that provides flexibility to store any type of data.
  • Compatibility with many types of applications: JBoss Data Grid 6 beta works with applications written in Java, C#, Spring, and others; deployed in an application server or standalone.
  • Reliable grid-based data storage: Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 6 beta is designed to easily distribute data across multiple nodes. Data can be replicated in memory, written to disk, or stored in a relational database for fault-tolerance.
  • Elastic scaling: JBoss Data Grid 6 beta allows simple addition and removal of storage nodes without disruption.
  • Multiple access protocols: Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 6 beta provides easy access to the data grid using REST, memcached, Hot Rod, or simple map-like API.

Dear *,

Recently I looked for Seam 3 applications running into JBoss AS7 (foretaste purpose) or EAP 6 (Professional use purpose).
So I uncompressed the following packages into a temporary directory (Test purpose) of a common|standard user of the system :

  • JBoss EAP6 Beta – Server which provides software applications with services such as security, data services, transaction support, load balancing, and management of large distributed systems. – -> Download Package
  • JBoss AS7 – Server which provides software applications with services such as security, data services, transaction support, load balancing, and management of large distributed systems. -> Download Package
  • Seam 3 – Seam is a powerful open source development platform for building rich Internet applications in Java. – -> Download Package
  • Maven 3.0.3 -> well, if you are using Fedora or RHEL, be root on your system and run “yum install maven”. If not, then go to http://maven.apache.org to install the application

Then I set the JBOSS_HOME directory with the path of my application server – Here I chose to use JBoss EAP6 Beta : export JBOSS_HOME=/home/user/jboss-eap-6.0 (you can set it definitively in the maven settings.xml file or in you local profile).

I ran the JBoss EAP6 Beta Application Server in standalone mode with the following command :

jboss-eap-6.0/bin/standalone.sh

I opened the seam-3.1.0.Final/examples directories to set the following stanza in the pom.xml file :

<plugins>

<plugin>
<groupId>org.jboss.as.plugins</groupId>
<artifactId>jboss-as-maven-plugin</artifactId>
<version>7.1.1.Final</version>
<executions>
<execution>
<phase>package</phase>
<goals>
<goal>deploy</goal>
</goals>
</execution>
</executions>
</plugin>

</plugins>

Finally, I choose one of the Seam 3 examples, went to the corresponding directory and  I compiled and deployed it to the running  JBoss EAP6 Beta application server with the following commands :

cd seam-3.1.0.Final/examples/seam-booking

mvn package jboss-as:deploy

and then went to the following URL : http://localhost:8080/seam-booking
