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.

At the Red Hat Summit in Boston earlier this month, one IoT event stood out from the rest – a CodeStarter hackathon that brought together 80+ IoT enthusiasts to learn, tinker, and build an end-to-end IoT solution. The result was a complete IoT application that seamlessly integrates across IT and OT (Operations Technologies).

For businesses looking to build scalable Internet of Things (IoT) solutions using containers, here is a sample project built on the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. This project implements an intelligent IoT gateway on the OpenShift Container platform. The IoT Gateway is critical for enterprise IoT as it brings intelligence, and enables key services, at the edge. In this project, the gateway application is deployed as a set of microservices inside containers on OpenShift.

As I tried to create queues/topics installed within OpenShift 3.2 and accessible to external clients, I found that there were more things assumed about the process than not. So I decided to share my steps with others.
The only supported template for this scenario is via ssl transport with persistence
- That OpenShift is installed and working
- Persistent volumes have been created in OpenShift to use
- You must have a persistent store (i.e. a PV must be set up) based upon the template we are using.
- The volume claim is made during the build. It must be smaller than the size of the PV
In previous blogs, I talked about the the critical role of the IoT gateway in the enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) as it enables real time decision-making at the edge, secures downstream devices and optimizes network utilization. So how does one go about building this gateway? In this blog, you’ll learn how to build an intelligent IoT gateway in a few simple steps – you can find the code at GitHub.
To automate the gateway provisioning, we’ll using Ansible by Red Hat. Why? Because it is the simplest and best tool out there for this job. Besides, it can also be used for configuration management and application deployment. Once you’re ready to provision and deploy thousands of gateways in a production environment, you can use this same Ansible tool. This is how IT departments provision the systems securely across the network.

The release of the latest JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) brings with it the questions around how to get started with the various JBoss Integration and BPM product tool sets that are not installed out of the box.
In this series of articles we will outline for you how to install each set of tools and explain which products they are supporting.
This should help you in making an informed decision about what tooling you might want to install before embarking on your next JBoss integration project.
There are four different software packs that offer tooling for various JBoss integration products:
- JBoss Fuse Development
- JBoss Business Process and Rules Development
- JBoss Data Virtualization Development
- JBoss Integration and SOA Development
|Tooling is available under software updates
with early access enabled.
This article will outline how to get started with the JBoss Fues Development tooling and any of the JBDS 10 series of releases.
JBDS 10 can be obtained through the Customer Portal
or via the early access downloads on jboss.org
. After installing JBDS, start it up and you will see a welcoming JBoss Central
tab with at the bottom a tab to look at the available tool sets labeled Software/Update
You will notice at the time of this writing that there are no other JBoss Integration stacks offered to install upon first inspection. This is due to the other integration stacks being early access.
|Select JBoss Fuse Development.
Eventually they will be shown by default once testing finished and they release, but for now you can obtain them by checking the Early Access box in the bottom right corner.
This will reveal the integration stack tooling offerings and we will select JBoss Fuse Development. Click on the Install/Update button to start the installation and restart at the end to complete the process.
If you are interested in what is being installed, it can be examined by examining the pop-up listing of components and versions. Note this will change as the early access progresses towards final releases.
|Examine components and versions to be installed.
Stay tuned for more articles in this series that will detail the installation of the remaining JBoss Integration Stack tools.
In the past we have outlined the use of JBoss BPM and rules tooling for other versions of JBDS:
