TicketMonster and tutorials update!

In the past two weeks we have been working to improve our demos and tutorials. As a result, I'm happy to announce that a new and improved version of TicketMonster is available. The changes include:

  • the service layer has been refactored for handling concurrent requests better;
  • various fixes in the HTML5 application;
  • added pagination to the 'Bookings' view;
  • improved installation instructions;
  • tutorials have been updated to match the new source code.

You can see the new version of the application running in the cloud or download it from GitHub.

Welcome to jdf

Welcome to JBoss Developer Framework!

JBoss Developer Framework exists to show you, the developer, how to make the most of JBoss and Java EE 6 technologies on JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and JBoss AS.

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and JBoss AS

We have three ways to do this:


We start small, with the quickstarts. Each quickstart is very focused, and shows you one API, or one use case. There are about 53 quickstarts today, ranging from JAX-RS CRUD to GWT to HTML5 to transactions.

If you can't find the quickstart you are looking for, then please tell us and, together, we'll see what we can do!


Quickstarts are great, but there comes a time in everyone's life when they want to write something other than a simple application! TicketMonster steps up to the plate at this point. Today, it's a full web-app written, with front-ends showing off the three approaches to view layers we like at JBoss - HTML5 + REST, Errai/GWT and RichFaces/JSF.

Over time, we plan to add much more to TicketMonster, as well as spin up other examples. Check out the Roadmap for more info on our plans!


Fnally, we realise that there are lots of people still using older technologies such as Seam 2, Spring or Java EE 5. We've put together a comprehensive set of migration tutorials to show you how.

JBoss BOMs

To make all this possible, we've developed a set of BOMs. The BOMs start with Java EE 6, and build on that base API with JBoss extensions such as Hibernate (Search, Validator...), Errai and Arquillian. They're a great way to make sure you're using the same set of dependences that we test with!
