JBUG.BE even 9th of July

On the 9th of July, it is time to meet on our summer talks.

We will be accompanied by two real JBoss representatives.

The first Speaker will be Joram Barrez or Tom Baeyens (whoever wins/loses the fight), which will guide us through the final release of jBPM 4.0. The newest version will be out in the wild for just one week by then, so expect some hot news coming straight from the source. It'll be a good time to finally see what made it in this release and what they have planned for us later.

Carlo de Wolf, EJB3 Lead Developer at JBoss, will give us a first-class overview of the benefits of EJB3 in his presentation "Why use Spring? Tip the scales using EJB3".

This time Capgemini is so kind to provide us with an appropriate location. They are located in Diegem, Bessenveldstraat 19, which is between Brussels and the National Airport. The event starts at 18h00 and will finish with some drinks at 20h00.

Don't miss out and register for this event today.

Looking forward to meeting you,
The JBUG.be Team

Benelux JBoss User Group, 27 February 2009

Information Taken from Lunatech website:


We would like to invite you to our fifth Benelux JBoss User Group meeting: an evening of free technical sessions presented by JBoss and RealDolmen developers.

We will meet in Rotterdam. The exact location will be communicated later, so stay tuned.

* Date: Friday, 27 February 2009
* Time: Arrival 1600-1630, presentations start 1630, finish 1900-1930
* Location: T.B.A / Rotterdam


The programme will begin with a complete presentation of JBoss Seam by Joris de Winne and Jeroen Verhulst from RealDolmen. The talk will explain the basic concepts of JBoss Seam covering how to create components, injection, outjection, scope levels, security… In addition, it will give an overview of the pros and cons of the technology illustrated by a practical example. Special attention will be paid to how to test a JBoss Seam application.

In the second presentation, Mark Proctor, lead for JBoss Drools, will talk about Rules, Workflow and Event Processing (often referred to as event stream processing or complex event processing) are at the heart of the Business Logic for most enterprises. Each one provides a declarative environment to model business problems, but is limited in the scope and range of problems it can define. Typically an enterprise will source each product from a different vendor and at some level tries to integrate the three. This integration is often very limited and superficial, such as processes only using rules for stateless decision services. This session presents the Business Logic integration Platform (BLiP) concept which offers an integrated and unified approach.

Of course, beer and networking are also part of the programme ;)

Please register as soon as possible as we have a limited number of seats.
