JavaFX Unleashed with JRebirth at SoftShake2015

On Friday the 23th of October I have talked about JRebirth Application Framework during Soft-Shake 2015 conference (Geneva, Hepia).

This was the first time I talked only about JRebirth, pretty hard task to explain the JRebirth abstraction and its benefits.

Once again I shipped all family with me to discover Switzerland !! We have visited an interesting museum, the cathedral and the United Nations palais.

How JRebirth deploys to JCenter and Maven Central

This post will describe briefly how we are managing the release of all JRebirth artifacts by using Maven Build, Jenkins, Artifactory, Bintray/JCenter and Nexus.

Reminder

All JRebirth artifacts are deployed to several repositories as explained into the official documentation page : Installation

As you probably know, JRebirth is built using Maven tool, really convenient to package binaries, javadoc and sources jar but also to make and deploy the jrebirth website with syntax highlighting (thx to doxia include macro). It allows to break the build if a piece of code used into documentation is missing (ie: after some refactoring changes).

JRebirth Sample Application

A POC (proof of Concept) is being written to explain how to build a JRebirth based application that communicate with a JEE server. As usual it gives me a lot of ideas to improve some parts of JRebirth (ie: adding default CRUD support) API, I will work some weeks on it, let me know if you have more urgent tasks.

Obviously this application will be open sourced, it will deal with a subject that will interest a lot of fan of a certain hexalogy (and more)…, I’ve just hired an assistant: my elder son who knows a lot of fine details about the saga. Check the JRebirth Github pages to be informed of work progression.

The architecture used will be quite simple to be easily customizable and reusable in other contexts.

Database: MySQL
Servlet Container: Tomcat
Database Access Layer: JPA => Hibernate
Communication Layer: JAX-RS => Jersey
Serialization Engine: JAX-B
Client Framework: JRebirth 😉

Later I will probably extract some files to build a more complex Maven archetype (client-server), give me feedbacks if you are interested in.
