Jeff DeLong lectures
Red Hat JBoss provided a four day training in Stockholm, Sweden from 28 Feb - 03 Mar for a mixed group of partners (12x) and Red Hat JBoss'ers (4x) working in depth with the latest release of JBoss SOA-P 5.1.

This workshop included some technical previews of components that are coming down the JBoss projects pipeline and will be eventually included in the product.

These projects provide choreography, bpel, code generation, architect process tooling and a service repository for your soa artifacts:
The course covered the following topics and is a great way to scale up our partners on the technical details involved with implementing SOA-P solutions:

Thanks to Jeff DeLong for the work he put into designing a top notch workshop and I hope we will be able to roll this out to our EMEA partners as well soon!
