Working with new technology is exciting but can often be difficult. To remedy this situation, most developers prefer to follow a map of best practices detailing the landscape and providing some available options. Because Apache Geronimo is composed of BSD derived Open Source projects from throughout the community, a certain level of familiarity will exist. But how to get started and how to become productive still might not be clear without a little help.
This session will explain some best practices for using Apache Geronimo by detailing how to get started and how to become productive building Web applications as quickly as possible.
Apache Geronimo is fairly unique in its implementation. Rather than create each component from the ground up, Geronimo is actually composed mainly of BSD derived Open Source projects from throughout the community. One of the most powerful features within the Geronimo architecture is its pluggable design. This design offers power and flexibility when it comes to adding additional services.
In this session, the pluggability within Geronimo will be explained and demonstrated to provide a deeper understanding of the Geronimo architecture. This session will provide developers with a better understanding of the internals of Geronimo so they can begin plugging in their preferred Open Source projects.
