Jumping Into JBoss

JBoss is a free, open source, application server that implements the complete Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) stack, including Java Server Pages (JSP), servlets, and Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB). For J2EE developers that are getting started with JBoss, this article presents the basics, including downloading, installation, application deployment, and data source configuration.

Deploying Java Web Start Applications on the JBoss Application Server

This article will describe the deployment process and the subsequent automatic update of the client's GUI with the help of the Java Web Start technology in a Windows environment. At present, Java Web Start may be used in Windows, Linux, Unix (Solaris), and not so long ago in Macintosh OS X.

Introduction to Securing Web Applications with JBoss and LDAP

Start configuring security on JBoss and implementing an LDAP-based user information repository. The sample application described here demonstrates how to implement LDAP with the JBoss Security Extension (JBossSX), and describes a simple API for managing users, roles, and groups in LDAP. In addition, this article demonstrates the use of the Abstract Factory pattern to implement pluggable persistence.


Automated Unit Testing Frameworks

Employ unit tests to get robust code quickly using JUnit.


Keel: The Meta-Framework

Learn about the concepts and components that will give you the freedom to customize a framework at any point of time to fulfill your changing application development needs. The Keel framework, based on the popular Apache Avalon project, is worth exploring.

Distributed Web-Applications using the Keel Meta-Framework

No matter how well you plan ahead of time, many times you still run out of apace. Horizontal scalability may be your answer. Deploy a load-balancing and failover cluster using the Keel meta-framework and other open source projects.

Model-Driven Development in Keel

See how Model-driven development can help ensure the consistency of your development process, boost developer efficiency, and help ensure that a specification is accurately represented by the code that implements it.


Meet Lucene

Looking for a highly scalable, fast search engine that delivers performance and is disarmingly easy to use? Lucene may be the answer to your prayers.


Using Maven for Large Projects

For those considering to take the Maven plunge, go for it. Discover what to expect here, especially in relation to Ant.

MySQL Considerations

Here is a chance to kick the tires on MySQL and see if it is the database for you.

Using JDBC with MySQL, Getting Started

Learn how to download, install, and prepare a MySQL database as a localhost server on a Windows platform for use with JDBC. You can then write JDBC programs to administer the database server and to manipulate data stored on the MySQL database server.

Binding to MySQL in Java Studio Creator

Discover how to use MySQL within Creator. Walk through the installation, adding an example database, setting up a MySQL data source, and creating a demo creator application.

Building Database-Driven Applications with PHP and MySQL

When it comes down to it, almost every dynamic Web application eventually boils down to accessing, manipulating, and presenting information. Combining your programming knowledge with database knowledge is a key to success.


Thinking In Perl

Many people do not take advantage of the power behind Perl. Most instructional Perl material only teaches enough to get an interested programmer informed enough to write shell or C programs in Perl. This new series will show you Perl's power, style, conventions, and it's unique constructs.

Automating Web-based Data Retrieval with Perl

Need a way to gather data without the help of Web Services? See how to automatically collect web-based data by utilizing page retrieval, authentication, and cookies using Perl.
