Dear all,

BoxGrindier is going to be present @ FOSDEM’12.

Marek Goldmann will be presenting in the JBoss.org dev room on Saturday:

11:00 – 11:55 BoxGrinder : Grind your appliances easily

Here is the abstract :

BoxGrinder is a set of tools that help you grind out appliances: preconfigured disk images with the operating system and requisite software ready to run on a selected virtualization platform. With a simple text definition file and a single command BoxGrinder will build a lean appliance from scratch, convert it to a target format, and deliver it to your chosen infrastructure.

Virtualization has become almost ubiquitous in modern scalable infrastructures, with traditional dedicated hardware setups being replaced by multi-tenanted virtual environments. This change facilitates many of the beneficial properties of Cloud Computing, key amongst which is the ability to create small, function-specific appliances that enables system components to scale independently.

BoxGrinder addresses the key problem of specifying and building such appliances. It manages complexities such as software installation, dependency resolution and remote service interactions on your behalf. Existing methods can an arduously convoluted, with poor repeatability and performance characteristics; wasting time and resulting in slow and bloated appliances.  Such factors negate many of the motivating factors for embracing Cloud computing, and this is an obstacle that BoxGrinder is specifically designed to overcome. Coherent and simple to specify and run; yet fast to build and easily customized to any desired level of complexity.

In this session we will cover the basic concepts of BoxGrinder, with discussion of techniques and use-cases that illustrate how best to utilise BoxGrinder’s powerful feature-set. Finally, we will work through a live example, from text definition to a running virtual appliance.

Dear all,

Yesterday and in addition of the allocated JBoss.org devroom,  I had the confirmation JBoss.org has get a booth @ FOSDEM’12.

So, I can confirm we are going to do several AS7 application deployment demonstrations over the cloud without having to worry about downloading and managing the stack, writing scripts or installing agents in using Openshift.

Dear *,

Yesterday, I talked with one of the JBoss Forge Contributors – Koen – about his project.

Well, I did not work with it yet but strongly believed it is interesting  core framework for rapid- JBoss application development.

If you want to know how it works, please have a look at that youtube video –

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.

Dear *,

Yesterday someone asked me how to include  javax.servlet-3.0.jar in his JBoss AS 7 Project in using Maven.

My answer was to go to the JBoss community repository web interface – see URL below –
and search for the “servlet-api” then insert in his project’s pom.xml the follwoing content under the <dependencies></dependencies> stanzas :

<dependency>
<groupId>javax.servlet</groupId>
<artifactId>servlet-api</artifactId>
<version>3.0</version>

<scope>provided</scope>

</dependency>
