*Sacha Labourey: JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite*

Many JUGS members have used the JBoss Application Server in one way or
another. However, not everybody might be aware of the other "jewels"
which are part of the JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite.
JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite (JEMS) is an extensible and scalable
suite of products for creating and deploying e-business applications.
JEMS offers cutting-edge technology components which customers can
mix-and-match and roll out into their line of business infrastructure -
all at zero-cost software licenses. Sacha will talk about those JEMS
products and also give a glimpse of what you can expect from JBoss in
the future.

*Christian Bauer: Hibernate*

Christian Bauer will present the technical background behind Hibernate,
the most popular persistence solution for Java, and how the project
evolved into an EJB 3.0 persistence provider. The significantly improved
and simplified EJB entity beans of the new standard, and how
object/relational database mapping is handled, are another topic of this
Finally, the new JBoss Seam framework is presented. Seam can greatly
simplify and speed up web application development in Java, by
introducing a new stateful component concept, based on EJB3 and
JavaServer Faces.

*Bela Ban: JBoss Clustering*

The talk will give an overview of JBoss Clustering. First, we will
define what clustering constitutes, and discuss load balancing and failover.

Then we will identify what can be clustered, e.g. HTTP sessions, SFSBs,
EJBs, and how to configure them for clustering.

Finally, we will take a look at the underlying architecture in place to
achieve clustering, e.g. JGroups and JBossCache.

The attendees should be familiar with J2EE and preferably have used the
JBoss application server before.
