How to set up Red Hat CodeReady Studio 12: Integration tooling

How to set up Red Hat CodeReady Studio 12: Integration tooling

The release of the latest Red Hat developer suite version 12 brings with it a name change from Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio to Red Hat CodeReady Studio. The focus here is not on the Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces, a cloud and container development experience, but on the locally installed developers studio.

The new release also brings with it the questions about how to get started with the various Red Hat integration, data, and process automation product toolsets that are not installed out of the box. This series of articles showcases how to install each set of tools and explains the products they are supporting. The hope is that an easy getting started experience will help you make informed decisions about the tooling that you might want to use on your next development project.

Optimizing Red Hat Fuse 7 Spring Boot container images

Optimizing Red Hat Fuse 7 Spring Boot container images

Working with Red Hat Fuse 7 on Spring Boot is straightforward. In my field experience, I have seen many development (a.k.a. integrator) teams moving to Fuse 7 on Spring Boot for their new integration platforms on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (well aligned with agile integration).

Lately, however, I have also seen some teams worried about the size of the final images and the deployment pipeline. In most cases, they had developed a set of common libraries or frameworks to extend or to homogenize the final integration projects. All the cases have the same result:

  • Several dependencies copied in each integration project
  • Always replacing the container images with the latest fat JAR (including the same dependencies) in each build pipeline

Spring Boot is usually packaged as “fat JARS” that contain all runtime dependencies. Although this is quite convenient, because you only need a JRE and a single JAR to run the application, in a container environment such as Red Hat OpenShift, you have to build a full container image to deploy your application.

Red Hat Summit 2019 Labs: Integration and APIs roadmap

Red Hat Summit 2019 Labs: Integration and APIs roadmap

Red Hat Summit 2019 is rocking Boston, MA from May 7-9 in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Everything you need to know about the current state of open source enterprise-ready software can be found at this event. From customers talking about their experiences leveraging open source in their solutions, to the creators of open source technologies you’re using, and all the way down to hands-on lab experiences on these technologies.

This hands-on appeal is what this series of articles is about. Previously, we looked at the labs in the Cloud-Native App Dev track, and this time, we provide a roadmap to the “Integration and APIs” lab content.

How to integrate a remote Red Hat AMQ 7 cluster on Red Hat JBoss EAP 7

How to integrate a remote Red Hat AMQ 7 cluster on Red Hat JBoss EAP 7

It is very common in an integration landscape to have different components connected using a messaging system such as Red Hat AMQ 7 (RHAMQ 7). In this landscape, usually, there are JEE application servers, such as Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7 (JBoss EAP 7), to deploy and run applications connected to the messaging system.

This article describes in detail how to integrate a remote RHAMQ 7 cluster on a JBoss EAP 7 server, and it covers in detail the different configurations and components and some tips to improve your message-driven beans (MDBs) applications.
