Dear *,

More and less seven years I am involved in projects like Fedora and Jboss.org @ Fosdem.
And finally glad to see Red Hat as one of the main sponsors of that huge EMEA Open Source Community event.
Many thanks for your supports over these years. (Leslie, Developers, and the Red Hat BeNeLux Team).
See you there (IT Professional people or not…). 😉

N.B. :
FOSDEM is a free event that offers open source communities a place to meet, share ideas and collaborate.
It is renowned for being highly developer-oriented and brings together 5000+ geeks from all over the world.

Dear *,

Few days ago, I worked on  JBoss AS 7 Quickstart Application – jboss-as-quickstarts-7.0.2.CR1 – on my Fedora 16.

Here is the brief procedure to make you start :

Assuming you have a Fedora 16 installed on your PC, Laptop,Server.

1] Download the JBoss AS7 binaries from http://www.jboss.org/jbossas/download. – I downloaded the 7.0.2.Final Web Profile Only (Java EE6 Certified) –

2] Download the JBoss AS7 Quickstart Application from http://www.jboss.org/jbossas/download. – I downloaded the Quickstarts released the 2011-07-12.

3] Install maven and eclipse on your Fedora 16 station as root user – yum install maven; yum install eclispe -.I use maven-3.0.3-15.fc16.x86_64 and eclipse-pde-3.7.1-4.fc16.x86_64.

4] Then please have a look at the excellent JBoss AS7 procedure available at the following URL : https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS7/Getting+Started+Developing+Applications+Guide. However, before importing the maven quickstart projects pay attention to have an available internet connection and to have imported the JBoss Maven Tools from Jboss Tools – http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/development/indigo/– as well as the Maven Integration for WTP m2e-wtp –http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/indigo/SR1/  -.

Well to know how to import JBoss Tools in your eclipse then please have a look the following procedure : https://fhornain.wordpress.com/2009/11/06/jboss-tools-installation-on-fedora-11/

5] Follow the excellent JBoss AS7 procedure available at the following URL : https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS7/Getting+Started+Developing+Applications+Guide

Rem :

These are community projects and, as such are not supported with SLA.

Any questions or problems can be raised through the JBoss AS 7 User Forum and Fedora 16 User Forum where the community will provide their best efforts to assist. These projects are included in the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and Red Hat Enterprise Linux for which a support subscription is available.

Best Regards


Dear *,

I am going to do “Open the Code to Students” presentation @ Louvain-li-Nux, Louvain-la-Neuve, the 20th of October 2011.
That one will take place at Auditoire SCES 03, Place des Sciences, 2 – Louvain-la-Neuve.

During this presentation, I will address the major open source projects adopted in business, but also projects that could be used by students daily.
Finally, I will explain the interest that everyone have to contribute.

BTW, this presentation will be in French.

Dear *,

Well as I missed the interesting project presentation at FOSDEM this year, I wanted to share it with those who missed as well 😉

Personally, I am convinced a lot of companies would be interested by such project.

Does anyone of you know if that project have chance to integrate the Fedora Distribution ?

Extract from the Freedombox.org website :

What is FreedomBox?

  • Email and telecommunications that protects privacy and resists eavesdropping
  • A publishing platform that resists oppression and censorship.
  • An organizing tool for democratic activists in hostile regimes.
  • An emergency communication network in times of crisis.

FreedomBox will put in people’s own hands and under their own control encrypted voice and text communication, anonymous publishing, social networking, media sharing, and (micro)blogging.

Much of the software already exists: onion routing, encryption, virtual private networks, etc. There are tiny, low-watt computers known as “plug servers” to run this software. The hard parts is integrating that technology, distributing it, and making it easy to use without expertise. The harder part is to decentralize it so users have no need to rely on and trust centralized infrastructure.

That’s what FreedomBox is: we integrate privacy protection on a cheap plug server so everybody can have privacy. Data stays in your home and can’t be mined by governments, billionaires, thugs or even gossipy neighbors.

With FreedomBoxes in their homes, anybody, regardless of technical skill, can easily enjoy secure, private, even anonymous communication!

I am going to do this presentation to one our Luxembourg customer.
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.

In parallel, I would like to congratulate the openscap and the openscap work-bench. they are great tools. I had the opportunity last week to introduce lightly these ones to one of customer and he really appreciated it.
Even if it is in RHEL 6 techpreview, he is going to use it for his default image definition. He also ask me to have a deeper explanation of it.
Thanks for your help and your work.
