How to set up LDAP authentication for the Red Hat AMQ 7 message broker console

How to set up LDAP authentication for the Red Hat AMQ 7 message broker console

This post is a continuation of the series on Red Hat AMQ 7 security topics for developers and ops people started by Mary Cochran.  We will see how to configure LDAP authentication on a Red Hat AMQ 7 broker instance. In order to do so, we will go perform the followings actions:

  • Set up a simple LDAP server with a set of users and groups using Apache Directory Studio.
  • Connect Red Hat AMQ 7 to LDAP using authentication providers.
  • Enable custom LDAP authorization policies in Red Hat AMQ 7.

Containerizing SQL DB changes with Flyway, Kubernetes, and OpenShift

Containerizing SQL DB changes with Flyway, Kubernetes, and OpenShift

In DevOps projects, you are sometimes haunted by the practices inherited from the monolithic world. In a previous project, we were checking how to simply apply SQL updates and changes to a relational database management system (RDBMS) database in an OpenShift Cluster.

Micro database schema evolution patterns are perfectly described by Edson Yanaga in his brilliant free book: Migrating to Microservice Databases: From Relational Monolith to Distributed Data.  A video presentation of these patterns is also available on youtube.

In this blog post series we will show a simple approach to implement the described patterns in your Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipelines on OpenShift. The series is split in two parts:

  • This post shows how to handle SQL update automation using Flyway, Dockerfiles, and Kubernetes on OpenShift.
  • A future post will showcase application migration patterns, including database migration stages using OpenShift Jenkins2 pipelines.

Securing Fuse 6.3 Fabric Cluster Management Console with SSL/TLS

Introduction

Enabling SSL/TLS in a Fabric is slightly more complex than securing a jetty in a standalone Karaf container. In the following article, we are providing feedback on the overall process. For clarity and simplification, the article will be divided into two parts.

 

Part1: The Management Console

Part2: Securing Web Service:including gateway-http

 

For the purpose of this PoC, the following environment will be used.

JBoss EAP 7 Domain deployments – Part 4: Domain deployment with REST Management API.

In this series of article, I will present several ways to deploy an application on an EAP Domain. The series consists of four parts. Each one will be a standalone article, but the series as a whole will present a range of useful topics for working with JBoss EAP.

In part one of this series, we set up a simple JBoss EAP Domain. In part two, we reviewed the EAP Management Console deployment Mechanism and deployed the helloworld-html5 EAP Quickstart on the main-server-group ( Server11 and Server21). In part three, we deployed helloworld-html5 on secondary-server-group using the CLI Command line.

In this tutorial, part four, we are going to explore another deployment option: the REST Management API. To do so, we will upload a file in the EAP content repository and then deploy it.

JBoss EAP 7 Domain deployments – Part 3:  Domain deployment with Common Language Interface CLI.

JBoss EAP 7 Domain deployments – Part 3: Domain deployment with Common Language Interface CLI.

In this series of articles, I will present several ways to deploy an application on an EAP Domain. The series consists of four parts. Each one will be a standalone article, but the series as a whole will present a range of useful topics for working with JBoss EAP.

In part one, we set up a simple EAP domain with the following topology:

JBoss EAP Simple Domain

JBoss EAP Simple Domain

In part two, we reviewed the EAP management console deployment mechanism, and deployed the helloworld-html5 EAP Quickstart on the main-server-group ( Server11 and Server21).

When it comes to interactions with a continuous deployment software factory, however, we need more powerful and flexible tools to organize the build and deployment process — the management console is not a good fit for build automation.

To solve this problem, JBoss EAP provides users with both a CLI tool and a simple REST API to perform complex administration tasks.

In this article, we will use the EAP CLI to deploy the helloworld-html5 Application on the secondary-server-group.

JBoss EAP 7 Domain deployments – Part 1: Set up a simple EAP Domain

Red Hat JBoss EAP 6 introduced some new concepts like configuration simplification, Modularity, new management CLI , user-friendly management console and an amazing feature called “Domains”. Domain mode changes the way applications are deployed on EAP instances.

JBoss EAP 7.0 was just released and announced by Red Hat.

In this series of articles, I will present several ways to deploy an application on an EAP Domain. The series consists of four parts. Each one will be a standalone article, but the series as a whole will present a range of useful topics for working with JBoss EAP.
