Learn Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization through multiple avenues

I wanted to share 2 great resources to learn more about Data Virtualization.

First learn how to model data sources and virtual entities such as tables, views, and procedures through the Development course through Red Hat Training.

Red Hat® JBoss® Data Virtualization Development teaches database developers and administrators how to model data sources and virtual entities such as tables, views, and procedures. Through hands-on labs, students will learn how to deploy these virtual entities for JDBC and web service consumption. This course can also help certification candidates in their preparation for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Data Virtualization Exam (EX450).

During the course you will learn:
  • Modeling data sources
  • Modeling a virtual base layer
  • Creating virtual databases (VDB)
  • Modeling Unions, joins and virtual procedures
  • Modeling and deploying web services
  • Server administration
  • Developing client application
Here is an example training video by Jim Rigsbee, Middleware Curriculum Manager.  Jim discusses Managing a Virtual Database through the JBoss Management Console.

The second training available is the Workshop we have built on github at  This workshop walks you through creating a Financials Demo for a real world use case.   You can find the documentation which walks you through the workshop in different formats such as html, pdf, DocBook formats.  For example:

We are also building a Data Virutalization Primer which will be comprised of online labs that can be completed in a short amount of time.  Any comments or questions on Data Virtualization workshops and demos you would like to see please contact me!
