Open Liberty 20.0.0.12 brings support for gRPC, custom JNDI names, and Java SE 15

Open Liberty 20.0.0.12 now supports gRPC 1.0 and gRPC Client 1.0. This universal, open source framework is an efficient way to connect remote services across data centers.

Using IntelliJ Community Edition in Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces 2.5

Using IntelliJ Community Edition in Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces 2.5

Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces (CRW) provides a default browser-based IDE to be used with developer workspaces. However, the architecture is flexible for using other IDEs such as Jupyter Notebooks and Eclipse Dirigible. In this article, you will learn how to create a custom workspace using the community edition of IntelliJ IDEA.

Note: You can also apply the instructions in this article to create a free, self-service Eclipse Che workspace hosted at che.openshift.io.

Creating a custom workspace in CodeReady Workspaces

We will start with the procedure for creating a custom workspace in a connected CodeReady Workspaces environment. See the next section for instructions to set up a custom workspace in an air-gapped environment.

Cloud-native modernization or death? A false dichotomy

Cloud-native modernization or death? A false dichotomy

DevNation Tech Talks are hosted by the Red Hat technologists who create our products. These sessions include real solutions plus code and sample projects to help you get started. In this talk, you’ll learn about cloud-native modernization from Daniel Oh and Burr Sutter.

Are you familiar with the tight coupling of applications with their underlying platform that makes change hard? Or, coupling that creates a lack of scalability, performance, and flexibility for existing applications built with legacy technology? How about the fact that re-architecting applications cannot be done overnight?

Orchestrate event-driven, distributed services with Serverless Workflow and Kubernetes

Orchestrate event-driven, distributed services with Serverless Workflow and Kubernetes

Serverless workflows have gained renewed interest and usefulness with the rise of serverless architectures. Once seen as centralized and monolithic, they now play a key role in cloud-based event and service orchestration. Until recently, there was no vendor-neutral way to describe service orchestration, so developers were dependent on vendors and vendor implementations. We realized that we needed a common, standards-based language for describing serverless workflows.

Authentication and authorization using the Keycloak REST API

Authentication and authorization using the Keycloak REST API

Enabling authentication and authorization involves complex functionality beyond a simple login API. In a previous article, I described the Keycloak REST login API endpoint, which only handles some authentication tasks. In this article, I describe how to enable other aspects of authentication and authorization by using Keycloak REST API functionality out of the box.
