Summit Preview: JBoss EAP Highlights

Next week is Red Hat Summit / DevNation in San Francisco. And you can still register!

My last highlight post touched on the many sessions and labs related to Red Hat middleware that will be at Summit this year, but (for the eagle-eyed reader) there was something missing: any sessions related to Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.

There is a reason. Back in December, JBoss EAP 7 Beta was released, and this marked a significant technology advancement. JBoss EAP 7 is based on the Java EE 7 spec, which introduces a number of improvements in data handling, transactions, and other performance and development areas. Additionally, JBoss EAP 7 itself adds a lot of new features and continues down its previous path for lightweight, modular, and highly-configurable server instances.

There are dozens of middleware-related sessions and over 200 total sessions at Summit / DevNation. For this, I want to highlight ones that are looking more in-depth at JBoss EAP.

DevNation Sessions for JBoss EAP

A lot of the developer sessions (along with a handful of Summit sessions) are focusing on how to use JBoss EAP for microservices, from a lot of different angles. This will be really useful for architects planning new microservices apps.

The complete session list, which can be sorted by track, is available on the Summit website.
