We continue our journey with setting up HTTP request load balancing, and setting up a cluster of highly available JBoss nodes, while demonstrating how easy it is to finely manage classloading dependencies for your applications. We cover some extra performance features and new security features such as the Vault, which you can use to encrypt plain-text passwords in configuration files. We talk about some development features new with JBoss EAP, such as Arquillian, a test harness for testing CDI and EJB beans without a full blown startup/shutdown container cycle. Lastly, we'll talk in depth about JBoss logging, how to use the logging framework provided by the container or roll your own logging in your application.
