Congratulations to the whole AS team on the release of version 6! JBoss AS 6 is a Java EE 6 compliant application server, so it includes built-in support for many of the technologies we talk about here: CDI, JPA 2, Bean Validation, EJB 3.1, JSF 2.0, Servlets 3.0, along with many major enhancements in other areas.
A few folks have been asking what the hell's happened to me, and I realized that I have not posted anything here for like 6 months. Well, the truth is, apart from recently becoming a father, I've been quite busy with a really exciting new project. And yeah, my head is full of a hundred interesting things I could blog about, but, unfortunately, the new project is super-duper secret for now, so I'll have to keep a lid on it until we're ready for an alpha release (perhaps another 6 months from now).
In this shortish part, we'll add some interfaces to our application so external users can read the current greetings.
Expanding the interfaces so greetings can be added is left as an exercise for the reader
