About This Book- Develop Java EE 7 applications using the WildFly platform- Discover how to use EJB 3.x, JSF 2.x, Ajax, JAX-RS, JAX-WS, and Spring with WildFly 8.1- A practical guide filled with easy-to-understand programming examples to help you gain hands-on experience with Java EE development using WildFlyWho This Book Is ForThis book is for professional WildFly developers. If you are already using JBoss or WildFly but don't use the Eclipse IDE and Maven for development, this book will show you how the Eclipse IDE and Maven facilitate the development of Java EE applications with WildFly 8.1. This book does not provide a beginner-level introduction to Java EE as it is written as an intermediate/advanced course in Java EE development with WildFly 8.1.What You Will Learn- Use Maven to develop and deploy Java EE applications with WildFly 8.1- Develop Java EE applications for WildFly 8.1 using the Eclipse IDE- Create an EJB 3.0/JPA-based application with WildFly 8.1- Familiarize yourself with object-relational mapping with Hibernate 4- Build and package a JSF 2.0 Facelets application with Maven and then deploy it in WildFly 8.1- Build a JAX-WS 2.2 web service and a JAX-RS 2.0 RESTful web service and learn how to use Spring MVC 3.1In DetailThis book starts with an introduction to EJB 3 and how to set up the environment, including the configuration of a MySQL database for use with WildFly. We will then develop object-relational mapping with Hibernate 4, build and package the application with Maven, and then deploy it in WildFly 8.1, followed by a demonstration of the use of Facelets in a web application.Moving on from that, we will create an Ajax application in the Eclipse IDE, compile and package it using Maven, and run the web application on WildFly 8.1 with a MySQL database. In the final leg of this book, we will discuss support for generating and parsing JSON with WildFly 8.1.
