Apache Camel URI completion: easy installation for Eclipse, VS Code, and OpenShift.io

Discoverability and ease of installation of Apache Camel tooling based on the Language Server Protocol has been improved. Manual download and installation of binaries is no longer necessary!  For the Eclipse desktop IDE and the VS Code environment you can now find and install the Camel tooling directly from the marketplaces for each development environment.

Camel Language Server is now also available in Red Hat OpenShift.io!

In this article, I will show you how you can install Camel tooling via the marketplaces for Eclipse and VS Code.  I will also show how to enable Camel tooling in your OpenShift.io workspace.

Scaling AMQ 7 Brokers with AMQ Interconnect

Red Hat JBoss AMQ Interconnect provides flexible routing of messages between AMQP-enabled endpoints, including clients, brokers, and standalone services. With a single connection to a network of AMQ Interconnect routers, a client can exchange messages with any other endpoint connected to the network.

AMQ Interconnect can create various topologies to manage a high volume of traffic or define an elastic network in front of AMQ 7 brokers. This article shows a sample AMQ Interconnect topology for scaling AMQ 7 brokers easily.

Announcing AMQ Streams: Apache Kafka on OpenShift

Hi all,

Apache Kafka is a leading real-time, distributed messaging platform for building data pipelines and streaming applications.

Using Kafka, applications can:

  • Publish and subscribe to streams of records.
  • Store streams of records.
  • Process records as they occur.

Automating AMQ 7 High Availability Deployment

Red Hat JBoss AMQ 7 provides fast, lightweight, and secure messaging for internet-scale applications. In addition, AMQ 7 components use industry-standard message protocols and support a wide range of programming languages and operating environments.

Therefore, AMQ 7 gives you the strong foundation you need to build modern distributed applications. Especially relevant is that multiple instances of AMQ 7 brokers can be grouped together to share message processing load.

Each broker manages its own messages and connections and is connected to other brokers with “cluster bridges” that are used to send topology information, such as queues and consumers, as well as load balancing messages.

AMQ 7 supports two different strategies for backing up a server: shared store and replication.

Announcing Developer Studio 11.3.0.GA, JBoss Tools 4.5.3 for Eclipse Oxygen.3a

The community editions of JBoss Tools 4.5.3 and JBoss Developer Studio 11.3 for Eclipse Oxygen.3a are here waiting for you. Check it out!

Installation

JBoss Developer Studio comes with everything pre-bundled in its installer. Simply download it from our JBoss Products page and run it like this:

Setting Up a Failover Scenario Using Apache Camel ZooKeeper

In this article, we will discuss using the Apache Camel ZooKeeper component, and demonstrate how easily we can set up a fail-over scenario for Apache Camel Routes. While working in a clustered environment, situations arise where a user wants to have a backup or slave route which will become active only when the master (or the currently active) route stops working. There are different ways to achieve this: one can use Quartz to configure a master-slave setup; JGroups can also be used. In a Fabric8 environment, there is a master component which can easily be set up as a failover scenario.

What is a KJAR?

Red Hat JBoss® BPM Suite and Red Hat Decision Manager (formerly Red Hat JBoss BRMS) both use an artifact packaging known as a “KJAR”, or knowledge artifact, since version 6. What is this file type? What separates it from a standard JAR file?

The basic summary

In very few words, a KJAR is a standard JAR file that has some extra files included. A KJAR keeps the same .jar extension as a JAR file, because its basic file structure is identical to that of a JAR.
