Next DevNation Live: Camel Riders in the Cloud, March 15th, 12pm EDT

The next online DevNation Live Tech Talk will be Thursday, March 15th at 12pm EDT. The topic is Camel Riders in the Cloud presented by Claus Ibsen

Apache Camel has fundamentally changed the way enterprise Java™ developers think about system-to-system integration. It makes it easy to apply enterprise integration patterns (EIP) using simple declarations. The result is a lightweight application that is wrapped and delivered as a single JAR.

In this session, we’ll show you how to apply the best practices from the enterprise integration world to build microservices that are deployed as Linux® containers, running on top of Kubernetes and Red Hat OpenShift. These integration applications will be both cloud-native and cloud-portable.

Register now and join the live presentation at 12pm EDT, Thursday, March 15th. 

Note: For those outside of the US, daylight savings time started this week, so the US East coast is now UTC – 4.

3scale by Red Hat API and Identity Management Series

Today’s modern infrastructure faces the complex challenge of managing user’s access to the resources. To protect system and data integrity, companies have implemented identity and access management (IAM) solutions for their in-house systems. IAM solutions address three major concepts: identity, authentication, and authorization.  Their job is to ensure that only authenticated and authorized users have access to resources or information. Every IAM solution on the market provides a great set of features such as:

  • Single Sign-On (SSO)
  • Centralized policy-based authentication and authorization
  • Identity federation

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…”.

Announcing Fuse for agile integration on the cloud – FIS 2.0 release

Today, I am very pleased to announce the GA of Fuse Integration Service 2.0. This release will make integration applications more portable, flexible and allow agile developers to react faster to business needs by supporting microservice architectures. Developers will now be able to realize the benefits of microservices within integration projects and be able to leverage integration patterns while breaking up monolithic applications and reducing the size of services pushed onto older ESB technology.

With FIS 2.0, developers can now choose a more suitable technology for the composition and integration of microservices,  with a more lightweight runtime providing for faster deployment, while simplifying packaging and ensuring a smoother process from development to production, as well as allowing management of the distributed application and taking care of fault tolerance all at the same time.

The Camel Rest DSL


Apache Camel is a piece of JBoss Fuse.  It is an open source integration framework with a variety of components to fit your integration needs.  Camel is a Java-based implementation of the Enterprise Integration Patterns based on a book by Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf.  Camel includes components for HTTP, Files, FTP, JMS, JDBC, AWS, and much more.  While Camel can be used for many different purposes, this post will focus on the REST DSL specifically.
