Voting : is currently open for the 2013 JBoss Community Recognition Awards. 

 

Please vote for your favorite contributor and/or contribution.  Just reading through the notations is very valuable even if you do not recognize any of the names from forum postings, blogs, wikis, jiras or in the codebase.  A special thank you to all of our community contributors that make the open source ecosystem so vibrant and exciting!

 

Demo : In case you missed it, the JBoss team pulled off another live demonstration leveraging Vert.x, TorqueBox, Immuntant, Aerogear and OpenShift - a polyglot, real-time push notification-based application.  The demo starts around minute 25 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjT-pMCkkTY
