JBoss SOA: ESB Service Implementation with Exam

Categories: Guaranteed To Run™, Red Hat


Duration: 3 Days

The JBoss® SOA ESB Service Implementation course with exam provides an overview of the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform (JBoss SOA-P) and focuses on skills required to leverage the ESB. Designed for experienced Java™ EE developers, this course teaches the process for developing and deploying ESB services and providers. Students will enhance their ESB development skills while deploying and managing ESB services, like HTTP providers, JMS providers, transformation actions, and available built-in service actions. Through in-class investigation and hands-on labs, they will leave the class able to design, develop, deploy, and test ESB services in accordance with SOA design principles using JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) and JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform.

Important note: This course emphasizes ESB development only and does not include tertiary development tasks that a JBoss SOA-P developer may need.

  • JBoss SOA-P technologies overview
  • How ESB providers and services work together
  • Details of popular built-in ESB services and providers
  • Writing custom ESB actions to leverage legacy services
  • Using built-in actions to incorporate existing Drools, JPA, and EJB services
  • Web services and JMS provider and service deployments to expose business functions
  • Smooks and XSLT transformations to support diverse message formats
  • JBDS tooling to build and deploy ESB services
  • Java Enterprise knowledge
  • 5 years Java EE programming experience
  • Basic XML scripting experience

Senior Java EE developers, including enterprise SOA architects and service developers who want to effectively develop and deploy ESB services to support their enterprises

Overview of JBoss SOA-P product

  • Covers the basics of the JBoss® Enterprise SOA Platform product, including the positioning of the ESB within the product and other constituents of the JBoss SOA-P.

Focus on the ESB

  • Brings together the basics of developing an ESB service. Students will deploy a simple service in this module to examine the overall flow of ESB service implementation.


  • In this module, students will examine and deploy an HTTP provider and work with other available providers that are part of the ESB. We will also begin the discussion of transformations with Smooks and XSLT in this module.

Service listeners

  • Students will investigate the use of service listeners for passing messages between providers and actions, and deploy a simple service using the FTP listener.

Service actions

  • Students will deploy rules actions designed to implement business logic and content-based routing in their services. An overview of available, common services is also included in this module, and a brief demonstration of BRMS will be given. This section concludes our discussion on transformation actions as well.

More actions

  • This module focuses on the legacy connector actions— to link a new ESB service to the database via JBoss Hibernate®, and to an EJB. Additionally, custom actions, which can be used to link to unsupported legacy systems, will be investigated for loading information from a database to enhance the ESB message.

Pass information along

  • In this section, students will take messages from the ESB and pass them on to third-party systems, including an HTTP-based web service running on a separate system. Students will also investigate the uses of Routers and Notifiers, and how these two features compare.

Monitor with JBoss ON

  • In this module, we will demonstrate using JBoss Operations Network to manage, monitor, and even provision ESB services to a JBoss SOA-P server.
