Getting Started with Global Beans in Fuse Tooling 10.0.0

Red Hat JBoss Fuse provides an open source, lightweight, modular platform that enables you to connect a variety of services and systems across your application environment. And, included with Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, is the Fuse Tooling that helps you take advantage of that platform.

The route editor initially focused on the parts of the Camel configuration inside the route or Camel context element, but in version 8.0.0, we began adding support for global elements such as data formats and endpoints on the Configurations tab. With the 10.0 release, we add support for beans that are outside the route.

AMQ Replication HA Policy

Demonstrating Red Hat JBoss AMQ 7 HA Replication Failover

A few weeks ago, the newest version of Red Hat JBoss AMQ was released. AMQ 7 is the result of Red Hat’s efforts on creating a unified messaging platform for its middleware offerings. One of the most interesting features of this new version is the new backing strategy for failovering when configured in high availability. This feature allows clients connections to migrate from one server to another in the event of server failure so client applications can continue to operate.

AMQ 6.x already had an option to configure failover using a shared store, usually backed up by a shared filesystem or a JDBC connection to a database. However, that option involved the use of external infrastructure add-on in hardware and software, representing an increase in overall deployment costs.

In AMQ 7, support for network-based replication was added. When using replication, the live and the backup servers do not share the same data directories; all data synchronization is done over the network. Therefore, all (persistent) data received by the live server will be duplicated to the backup.

Organizing Microservices – Modern Integration

Microservices is probably one of the most popular buzz words among my fellow developer friends, and I do like the concept of being flexible, agile and having simply having more choices. But as a person that worked in the software integration space for years, I started to see some resemblance of the old ESB days.

Looking at the problem from ten thousand feet up. A decade ago, we had to come up with a better way of organizing the spaghetti connection in between systems, stop duplicating effort on the same piece of business logic. That is when service-oriented architecture (SOA) became popular. By modularizing services, sharing them among others systems, and organize ways of communication, routing of data. And ESB is one implementation of that, maybe not necessarily how it should be done.

Reference Architecture for Agile Integration

Integration is still around but in a different form. So, what does modern integration look like? Looking at how agile scrum has taken over traditional waterfall development framework, by enabling shorter delivery cycles, faster feedback, and having the flexibility to rapidly adapt to changes. I believe it’s time for traditional integration to be agile again. By breaking up traditional ESB into distributed microservices.

Upgrading to Vaadin Framework 8 (Part 2 of 2)

In the previous part of this blog, I talked about the most important steps to get your project to compile with the latest Framework version.

The migration has been done through the first three steps mentioned here, and in this post, I will go over the least complicated steps of migration. Steps 4 and 5 cover the modernization of your project with the latest Framework 8 features. If you are in a hurry, you can do this later on as well, and use the new APIs only for new Vaadin code.

  1. Upgrade dependencies in the POM file
  2. Run Maven goal vaadin:upgrade8
  3. Upgrade Add-ons
  4. Upgrade non-data components
  5. Upgrade data components
  6. Back to the future

The rise of Agile Integration, Integration is not DEAD nor LAME!

I wanted to blog about this for a very long time, but because of work and being too lazy to turn on my laptop on the weekends, I now finally have a couple of hours to sit down and start blogging.

“Integration is DEAD.”

“No, no, let’s talk about microservice!”

“What is that again? Integration, you mean SOA? It’s lame…”.
