Yesterday was an incredibly exciting day at the DevNation general session. Two major things occurred (out of half a dozen things) related to middleware at Red Hat:
I summarized those two announcements with some thoughts on how they show the evolution and resilience of Java on LinkedIn. Read the whole thing, as they say.
Other highlights from Monday’s DevNation:
There’s a new photo album on the Middleware Facebook page, too, capturing a lot of moments from this week.
Red Hat Summit and DevNation are this week in San Francisco. There will be over 200 sessions and labs, along with exhibits and demos in the pavilion, partner presentations, coding events, and (of course) contests and swag.
Take a tour of the red carpet.
It can be hard to keep track of everything, so this is something of a cheatsheet to sessions and social media sites that have a running commentary on what’s what.

There will be a lot of consultants at Red Hat Summit (have you registered yet?) and they provide an energizing blend of technical insight and real-world practicality on how to apply technology to a business problem.
There is an awesome Discovery Series at Summit that will allow you to interact directly with consultants. Justin Holmes, a leader in business automation at Red Hat, will be doing a couple of sessions on how to design business rules and event processing that allow your company to be more responsive and more consistent. Details are on the Services Blog.
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.

It is almost time for Red Hat Summit, in lovely San Francisco. Are you ready? You still have time to register!
I am doing a handful of preview posts. The session list is amazing, with about a dozen different tracks or focus areas, everything from application development (the heart of middleware) to cloud to systems management to storage. There are so many gems in these sessions; if you can attend, try to hit these. And if not — keep an eye out on the Summit page and social channels like Vimeo and YouTube. A lot of presentations post recordings or slide decks after Summit, and there is an incredible variety of information.
Today, I want to look at integration paths. There are a lot of really diverse and complex topics here, being broken down into real-life examples, things like data virtualization, API management, integrating data streams from multiple sources and protocols.
