JBoss Forge - Breaking new ground in developer productivity JBoss Forge - Breaking new ground in developer productivity Presentation Transcript

  • JBOSS FORGE BREAKING NEW GROUND IN DEVELOPER PRODUCTIVITY By Vineet Reynolds L P / @VineetReynolds Senior Software Engineer JBoss Developer Experience, Red Hat
  • AGENDA What is JBoss Forge ? Let's see why we need this. Is it suitable for everybody ? You're a beginner and you want a tool that helps you make fewer mistakes. You're a pro and you want a tool that automates away the trivial bits.
  • AGENDA Can you extend it to suit your needs ? You have unique needs. Your company has unique needs. Your customers have unique needs.
  • LET'S TALK ABOUT PRODUCTIVITY...
  • Every one wants development to be like simple. Some expect to learn one language, a few APIs, maybe one framework, and meet all demands with a limited set of primitives.
  • But in reality - One language is hardly sufficient. APIs are numerous. Frameworks are dime a dozen. And it takes time to discover best practices relevant to your development stack.
  • Achieving expertise is not easy. It takes time. Scaling expertise across teams is even tougher.
  • SPEAKING OF FORGE... It is a tool to aid in automation of repetitive tasks. It helps in generation of boilerplate code. It is available as an Eclipse plugin and a standalone shell (for now).
  • INSTALL AS AN ECLIPSE PLUGIN
  • DOWNLOAD AND GET STARTED WITH THE CLI TOOL
  • FORGE IN ACTION Create a project
  • FORGE IN ACTION Setup JPA, CDI, BV etc.
  • FORGE IN ACTION Scaffold the app
  • LOOKING BACK... Forge commands surpass Maven archetypes or similar solutions. Forge is not constrained to any framework. It offers productivity to beginners (IDE users) and experts (shell users) alike. It provides 'sugar' at a higher level than language constructs. Productivity is not limited by requiring you to be aware of "syntactic sugar".
  • LOOKING BACK... It provides a safety net for beginners. Forge commands provide reproducible results. It allows knowledge to be 'crystallized' into executable code. Experts can share standardized solution patterns with beginners.
  • FORGE IN ACTION Write your own addons
  • TAKEAWAY POINTS Forge automates common development tasks, out of the box. You can extend it to solve your problems. It provides a simple programming model to enable this. And it does this without constraining you to a specific environment.
  • QUESTIONS ? You don't have a question yet. How do you get in touch later?
