  • Interview and Book Excerpt: Masoud Kalali’s GlassFish Security

    GlassFish Security book, by author Masoud Kalali, covers Java EE security model and how to design and develop secure Web and EJB modules in Java EE applications and deploy them to GlassFish server environment. InfoQ spoke with Masoud about the book and the new security features in Java EE 6 release.

  • Catching up with Nuxeo: Switching from Python to Java

    Back in 2006 InfoQ covered a story about Nuxeo, an open source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) specialist company, who had announced that it was changing its core technology platform from Python to Java. Four years on we caught up with Eric Barroca, CEO at Nuxeo, to find out how that conversion went, and to explore their new technology stack and position in the ECM industry.

  • A collaborative approach for real-world BPM

    Bernd Ruec​ker explores how to achieve a better Business-IT alignment when developing BPM solutions. He describes a methodology which uses BPMN-based process model as center for collaboration where users can discuss and link requirements, business rules or other artifacts, visualize development status, specify business driven test scenarios and much more.

  • What's IronRuby, and How Do I Put It on Rails?

    IronRuby is Microsoft's implementation of the Ruby language we all know and love with the added bonus of interoperability with the .NET framework. It's supported by the .NET Common Language Runtime as well as, albeit unofficially, the Mono project. This article gives an introduction to IronRuby, and discusses how to run Rails applications in IronRuby as well as potential issues to look out for.

  • Authorizing Process Access and Execution with JBoss jBPM

    Centralized BPM deployments can greatly benefit from the ability to control access to process definitions and instances ensuring that users can use and monitor only a set of processes that they are authorized for. In this article Boris Lublinsky shows how to extend JBoss jBPM to define and support process access authorization.

  • Book Excerpt and Interview: Dynamic SOA and BPM: Best Practices for Business Process Management and SOA Agility

    Boris Lublinsky interviews Marc Fiammante as part of a review of Marc' new book, Dynamic SOA and BPM: Best Practices for Business Process Management and SOA Agility. The book is based on many years of practical experience obtained during dozens of enterprise SOA implementations and covers major steps of such implementations

  • Encrypting the Internet

    The authors, from Intel, offer a three pronged approach to providing secure transmission of high volume HTML traffic: new CPU instructions to accelerate cryptographic operations; a novel implementation of the RSA algorithm to accelerate public key encryption; and using SMT to balance web server and cryptographic operations. Their approach, they claim, leads to significant cost savings.

  • WebSphere vs. .NET: IBM and Microsoft Go Head to Head

    After carrying out a number of benchmarks, Microsoft concluded that .NET offers better performance and cost-performance ratio than WebSphere. IBM rebutted Microsoft’s findings and carried out other tests proving that WebSphere is superior to .NET. Microsoft responded by rejecting some of IBM’s claims as false and repeating the tests on different hardware with different results.

  • Supporting Advanced User Interaction Patterns in jBPM

    Boris Lublinsky discusses task management in the jBPM and then demonstrates how to implement four advanced user interaction patterns(4-eyes principle, nomination, escalation, and chained execution) using JBoss and the jBPM. He also notes the advantages and limitations of these patterns.

  • Orchestrating Long Running Activities with JBoss / JBPM

    Orchestrating activities that extend over very long periods (hours, days, weeks) is a common design issue. Although technically BPM engines are specifically design to ideal with this issue, they do so with standalone processes with corresponding issues arising from callback mechanisms. This article we will show one of the approaches to use JBoss jBPM for solving this problem.

  • Using JBoss ESB and JBPM for Implementing VMS Solutions

    In a new article, Boris Lublinsky discusses how the JBoss middleware platform, specifically JBoss ESB and jBPM (JBoss Business Process Management) can be used to integrate both internal and third-party services to deliver composite services and content in customer-specific forms, including Web services, WAP, portals, and more.
