Over the last several weeks I've received a few questions about remote
debugging with Eclipse. I posted about this on my other blog back in February
here but with not enough info for others to follow.
If you go look at that blog entry you will see that I looked into 'in
eclipse' debugging but did not find it satisfactory.
So without further ado here is how I use Tomcat, JBoss, and Eclipse to build
and debug applications.
Whichever platform you are using (Tomcat or JBoss) you need to start them
with the JPDA debugging enabled. For Tomcat this is very easy. In the
$CATALINA_HOME/bin directory there is a script catalina.sh. If you provide
the arguments 'jpda start' tomcat will startup and listen on port 8000 for a
With JBoss its only slightly more complicated. Basically you need to speci... (more)

CloudSwitch Session at Cloud Expo
A year ago I attended a session at Cloud Expo in New York. The presenting
company told the audience that “cloud exploration services” were now
available. Enterprises could purchase these packaged services to discuss,
probably at length, how to identify candidate applications for cloud usage.
I’ve been there and done that – as a former professional services manager
for such a “Big 4” data center automation company, I’ve participated in
many such “school bus” campaigns. Often the end result is that everything
is said, and little gets done.
HBase is a distributed, NoSQL, open-source database, initially conceived as
an open-source alternative to Google’s proprietary BigTable. Originally,
HBase was part of the Hadoop project, but was eventually spun off as a
subproject. Given this legacy, it is not surprising that most often HBase is
deployed on top of a Hadoop cluster (it used HDFS as its underlying storage),
however a case study suggests that it can run on top of Amazon Elastic Block
Store (EBS) as well. These days HBase is used by companies such as Adobe,
Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo – and many others to process lar... (more)
In this session Anil Saldhana, a developer in the web services team at JBoss
who also leads the Apache Scout project on Apache, will describe how J2EE Web
Services in JBoss can be used to achieve a Service Oriented Architecture in
an enterprise with heterogenous systems and different programming languages.
Red Hat announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire
JBoss, the global leader in open source middleware. By acquiring JBoss, Red
Hat expects to accelerate the shift to service-oriented architectures (SOA),
by enabling the next generation of web-enabled applications running on a
low-cost, open source platform.
"It is at Red Hat's very core to help unlock the power of open source and
open communities to innovate across industries, geographies and economies,"
said Matthew Szulik, Chairman and CEO of Red Hat. "Red Hat and JBoss are
fully aligned around the bel... (more)
