Event Details

Presented by

Brian Stansberry

WildFly 8 (née JBoss Application Server) is Red Hat's open source Java EE 7 compliant application server. It contains robust implementations of WebSocket, Batch, JSON, Concurrency, JMS2, JAX-RS 2, CDI 1.1, and all Java EE 7 technologies. Undertow is the new cutting-edge web server in WildFly 8 and is designed for maximum throughput and scalability, including environments with over a million connections. The number of ports is reduced used by multiplexing protocols over HTTP using HTTP Upgrade.

Role Based Access Control support organizations with separated management responsibilities and restrictions. Roles represent different sets of permissions such as runtime operation execution, configuration areas that can read or written, and the ability to audit changes and manage users. In addition a new restricted audit log can be enabled including the ability to offload to a secure syslog server.

WildFly also provides a "core" distribution that is ideal for framework authors that want to build their own application runtime using the powerful WildFly 8 architecture.

NetBeans, IntelliJ, and Eclipse allow WildFly to be used for development, deployment, and debugging.

This virtual session will provide an overview of all these features using several live demos.


Brian Stansberry is the lead for the Application Server Clustering project at Red Hat’s JBoss division. He's an open source software advocate, and have been a committer on JBoss since 2003.


His other primary interests outside of the software realm are geopolitics and geoeconomics, particularly with respect to China. He has an M.A. in East Asian Studies from Stanford, so it’s not just an idle interest.
