Advanced JBoss Enterprise Development (JB325) dives into the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) with an emphasis on advanced Java EE application programming interfaces (APIs). This course challenges experienced Java EE developers by providing a deep dive into JBoss EAP details, features, internals, and Java EE best practices. Leveraging JBoss EAP allows students to build, deploy, and maintain highly performing, scalable applications. Diving into areas of JBoss technologies that differ from the non-JBoss enterprise middleware stacks, developers will be exposed to aspect-oriented programming, interceptors, JMX, and JBoss Services. In addition, students will be introduced to the new JBoss Messaging (for EAP 4.3). Using JBoss Developer Studio extensively as a lab integrated development environment (IDE), hands-on labs allow developers to experience and explore JBoss Cache, JGroups, clustering, dynamic proxies, transactions, and performance tuning.
