For Devoxx Belgium 2014 I had the opportunity to run a 3 hours hands-on-lab on Java EE with JBoss Forge. The idea was to get people up and running with JBoss Forge by 1) installing Forge (CLI and JBDS), 2) playing with it and 3) developing an entire Java EE application and extend it by writing a JBoss Forge add-on. The trick with a hands-on-lab […]
Let’s start with a definition of Censorship: Censorship is the suppression of speech or other public communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient as determined by a government, media outlet, or other controlling body. As you might be aware if you follow this blog, I wrote a third book entitled Java EE 7. A technical book about Java EE […]
Believe it or not, but I’ve been using Intellij IDEA for more than 10 years (I think it was back in 2003) and I love it ! Because of that, at each conference I go, I usually pay a visit to the JetBrains booth and chat with the guys. Mostly to tell them how good their products are, but also to give […]

But sometimes, for obscure reasons, Arquillian cannot do the job (let’s say the packaging of the application to test is too obscur). So I want to deploy my application, and then, execute some tests. But what I really want is my tests to be executed […]
In the last years, at every single Java EE BOF, Java EE round table, or even on the Java EE Expert Group mailing list, I’ve complained about Java EE not having a decent visual. How can you brand such technology if you don’t have a proper symbol ? How can you print t-shirts, mugs, beautify your blogs, if Java EE […]
Here we are, using H2 in our test environment, Derby in development and Postgres in production. It’s 2014, and Java EE still doesn’t have a decent configuration specification… So how do we change datasources in Java EE depending on our environment ? There are several possibilities (from external property files, Maven resource filtering, Maven profiles with different configuration or JNDI tricks) but this […]
At Devoxx France 2014 I had a Tools in Action of 30 minutes on JBoss Forge…. in French. So, excuse my French… but if you understand the language, you can watch this video on Parleys.
