Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Development II (JB325)


Who should attend

  • Experienced Java developers seeking to enhance their utilization of JBoss
  • Java developers who need a deeper understanding of JBoss to implement customized services based on remoting, JMX, or other protocols outside the normal JEE .ear or .war deployments
  • ISV development teams who need to know JBoss more intimately to customize the server environment to better fit their applications´ deployment needs
  • Application architects seeking to produce leaner, meaner deployment artifacts, resulting in better performance and integrity results


  • Two years of experience with Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) or Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE)
  • Proficient in HTML
  • Experience with an integrated development environment (IDE), such as Eclipse or NetBeans, and build tools, such as Ant or Maven
  • Basic knowledge of open source relational database management system (RDBMS)

Course Objectives

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.
