JBoss in Bossa and AOSD11

As the developer comunity grows in size and in expertise here in Brazil, it is natural that Brazil becomes host to new conferences.

I'm proud to be part of two distinct efforts in that direction.

To start, we are having the first edition of JBoss in Bossa, the Brazilian annual conference for the JBoss Brazil community, which is going to be hosted in Sao Paulo.
There is not too much time left to register, but you can still do it here.

The goal is to promote discussion around the news in the Java technology and in JBoss community projects. The agenda includes a presentation by Pete Muir, lead of JBoss Seam and Weld.

If you are attending JBoss In Bossa, I invite you to my presentation, where I'm going to talk about the new JBoss AS 6! You can check the agenda here.

Plus, I am also proud to announce that AOSD11 is going to be held in Brazil. As a committee chair of the Industry Track program, I encourage everybody involved with Aspect Oriented Software Development and related technologies to submit a paper. This is the perfect chance to get engaged with the AOSD community and to get to visit Brazil.

AOSD11 is going to be held in Porto de Galinhas, a paradisiac beach in the northeastern region. Stay tuned, as I'll post here more information on the conference and on the main topics of interest!

MC Tools: Converting service.xml files

Hi everyone! Welcome to my new blog!

I'm Flavia Rainone, a former Core developer at the JBoss AOP project, and I have joined the JBoss Microcontainer core development team on May.

I thought that the best way of kicking off my new blog would be introducing the MC Tools project.

The idea behind the MC tools is to create several tools that will help our users to speed up their development with MC. Given that the MC Tools is a work from the community to the community, everyone is invited to contribute with their own tools.

The first tool that we developed is a meta data converter. This tool basically converts your old -service.xml files to the new jboss-beans.xml format.

Of course, there is lot of space for improvements, but feel free to try it out and let us know what you think of it:

Just build the project with maven and use the resulting jar with a javac -jar to convert your jboss-service.xml files. There is no need to setup your classpath.

Stay tuned, as there is plan for improvements, new modules and documentation!
