The annual Red Hat Summit and JBoss World conferences are being held next week in Boston, and there will be a lot to see. Of special note, however, is the mobile sweepstakes trivia game put together by CityTech to demonstrate how to easily create a highly available and scalable application using JBoss technologies.
Along with using JBoss AS6, RESTEasy, HornetQ, RHQ, and CirrAS, they’re using ModeShape and JCR API to access the highly-scalable Infinispan data grid. Server components are deployed to Amazon Web Services, while users interact with the game using a web interface and native iPhone and Android clients. Check out Jeff Brown’s blog and Tom Kelly’s blog for the implementation details.
