Managed File Transfer (MFT) 2.0 with Fuse, 3scale and AMQ

It was more than 2 years ago that I blogged about building a Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution using Fuse and AMQ. First, many things have progressed, particularly the technology landscape. Second, MFT protocols have evolved. AS4 provides a new and improved way of securely exchanging documents over HTTP. In addition, the OASIS consortium governs a vendor-neutral open standard. This is great news, but how do we achieve support for these new standards and transports with our antiquated, legacy, and proprietary MFT software?

Innovating on Developers Events, Building the API Escape Room

It’s been almost a month after the first world edition of API Escape room at the Red Hat Summit in Boston. We thought you might be interested to hear details on how we prepared this event.

With the 3scale team, we often participated in classical hackathons where developers gather for 48 hours to come up with a working prototype. These were awesomely fun (!), but the outcomes of those events are quite uncertain for organizers, sponsors, and participants. You cannot guarantee that hackers will build stunning original hacks and it can be a tough ask to keep working for such a long period. You can’t be sure that it won’t just be another “recipe app” or “Uber for X”.

HOW-TO setup a 3scale AMP on-premise all-in-one install

As many of you already know, a couple of weeks ago, on April 25, 2017, Red Hat announced it’s fully containerized API Management Platform On-Premises version. Alongside the Software as a Service (SaaS) version, the 3Scale Openshift-based on-premise version opens new opportunities with customers looking for more control over their private APIs. Deploying API Management in their own data center or self-managed cloud environment is part of a critical path.

Celebrating 10 years of application development solutions at Red Hat

Red Hat is well known for pioneering the adoption of open source technologies in the enterprise. As the world’s first open source software company to earn more than two billion dollars in revenue, we have long enjoyed a position of leadership in an area that is now considered to be the de facto standard for innovation in IT.

In his book, The Open Organization, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst attributes part of Red Hat’s success to the passion of its people. And it’s true. It was the passionate belief of Red Hat’s earliest employees that Linux was not only an alternative to the dominant operating systems in the mid-to-late 90s, but that it could become a viable contender in the enterprise by harnessing the power of passion, openness, and collaboration that are hallmarks of open source. Today, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the world’s leading open source enterprise operating system platform, powering the majority of Fortune 500 industries.

But, 10 years ago, even before we became a leader in operating systems, we recognized that to maintain this momentum, and to truly become a strategic vendor for our customers, we needed to expand our focus. Building off of our leadership in enterprise infrastructure and operating systems, we set our sights on the application development market and acquired JBoss, the company behind the leading open source Java application platform at that time.

It was no longer good enough to win in operating systems. To be truly strategic, and reach the CIO, we needed to win the hearts and minds of software developers as well. Thus began our expansion and our journey into application development solutions.

API Management with JBoss Fuse on Openshift and 3scale on Amazon Web Services – Part 1

Introduction

A way organizations deal with the progression towards a more connected and API driven world, is by implementing a lightweight SOA/REST API architecture for application services to simplify the delivery of modern apps and services.

In the following blog series, we’re going to show how solutions based on 3scale and Red Hat JBoss Fuse enable organizations to create right interfaces to their internal systems thus enabling them to thrive in the networked, integrated economy.

Among the API Management scenarios that can be addresses by 3cale and Red Hat with JBoss Fuse on OpenShift, we have selected to showcase the following:

  1. Scenario 1 — A Fuse on Openshift application containing the API. The API is managed by 3scale with the API gateway hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) via the 3scale AMI.
  2. Scenario 2 — A Fuse on Openshift application containing the API. The API is managed by 3scale with the API gateway hosted via APIcast (3scale’s cloud hosted API gateway)
  3. Scenario 3 — A Fuse on Openshift application containing the API. The API is managed by 3scale with the API gateway hosted on Openshift

Using JBoss Fuse and 3scale for API Management

Since Red Hat and 3scale announced our partnership a year ago, we’ve seen great interest by companies and developers to use JBoss Middleware with 3scale API management technology (check out the solution brief here: Enabling success in the API economy).

In this webinar recording, we introduced you to how you can manage and control APIs (including a practical demo) using Red Hat® JBoss® Fuse, OpenShift by Red Hat, and 3scale.

Another month just went by and it is time to wrap it up with the monthly JBoss news blog post. We’ve all be busy thinking about how to make developers life much easier and published a number of articles, blogs and examples on how to get the most out of JBoss products and projects. As usual, this post tries to highlight the best of the best and I strongly recommend to follow the JBoss Weekly Editorial for a more timely update on what’s happening in the community.
