Getting started with Java EE development can, despite the important improvements over time, still be quite daunting for newbies. Putting a JSF application to work, setting up persistence or enabling restful web services are not trivial tasks.
JBoss Forge is a versatile and lean development environment entirely written in Java and making smart use of CDI. Its purpose is to offer you the possibility of incrementally working in new functionality into existing Java projects. It is a command-line oriented tool, so creating entities or scaffolding a user interface is just a matter of issuing a few commands.
But what if your task at hand cannot be done by Forge? No worries, as Forge operates by means of plug-ins, the answer is simply to look for an appropriate plugin or create it yourself if one is not available.
Finally, Forge can also be integrated in graphical IDE's opening up all its power to users of common platforms such as Eclipse.
Come to this session if you want to see this powerful tool live in action!
