JBoss and Exadel: 8 Years of Working Together


Exadel had de­vel­oped two well-re­garded prod­ucts in 2006. Exadel Studio was an Eclipse plug-in that con­verted Eclipse from just an in­te­grated de­vel­op­ment en­vi­ron­ment (IDE) to a pow­er­ful web app IDE. RichFaces was a JavaServer Faces (JSF) com­po­nent li­brary de­vel­oped by Exadel as part of its lead­er­ship role in JSF de­vel­op­ment at the time.

In March 2007, Exadel be­gan a part­ner­ship with Red Hat putting Exadel Studio and RichFaces into open source un­der JBoss. A key part of this part­ner­ship that con­tinues to this day (eight years later) is Red Hat con­tracting with Exadel for Exadel to pro­vide a de­vel­opment team to work on what is now known as JBoss Developer Studio.

Denis Golovin, in our California of­fice, has been the team lead on the Exadel side of the part­ner­ship for this whole time, so we thought we’d ask him a few ques­tions about it.

Exadel People Publish New RichFaces Book

Max Katz

Ilya Shaikovsky

Two Exadel em­ploy­ees, Max Katz and Ilya Shaikovsky, got to see their book, Practical RichFaces (2nd Edition), pub­lished by Apress last week. This book is per­fect for any­one with a ba­sic knowl­edge of JavaServer Faces who wants to learn how to build AJAX-based ap­pli­ca­tions with RichFaces. The book cov­ers RichFaces 4, which is based on JSF 2. It doesn’t over­whelm you by doc­u­ment­ing every last lit­tle de­tail in RichFaces 4, but still cov­ers every­thing, so that de­vel­op­ers at all lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence in RichFaces will get a lot out of this book.

Goodbye, Exadel Studio

The time has come to fi­nally pull the plug on our host­ing of legacy ver­sions of Exadel Studio. It’s been 3 years since we turned Exadel Studio over to Red Hat/​JBoss. Over that time, we have kept some legacy ver­sions avail­able for de­vel­op­ers who didn’t want to use the later ver­sions of Eclipse re­quired for the newer suc­ces­sors to Exadel Studio.

Webinar Recordings

In the process of adding a link to our lat­est we­bi­nar on our we­bi­nars page, I no­ticed we’ve com­piled quite a list of we­bi­nars over the last year. At Exadel, we usu­ally treat a we­bi­nar as a part­ner­ing op­por­tu­nity, so each of these we­bi­nars is as­so­ci­ated with a par­tic­u­lar part­ner. Going back a year that list in­cludes: Read more »
