Announcing AMQ Streams: Apache Kafka on OpenShift

Announcing AMQ Streams: Apache Kafka on OpenShift

Hi all,

We are excited to announce a Developer Preview of Red Hat AMQ Streams, a new addition to Red Hat AMQ, focused on running Apache Kafka on OpenShift.

Apache Kafka is a leading real-time, distributed messaging platform for building data pipelines and streaming applications.

Using Kafka, applications can:

  • Publish and subscribe to streams of records.
  • Store streams of records.
  • Process records as they occur.

Building a Secure IoT Solution: Summit 2017

Building a Secure IoT Solution: Summit 2017

How do customers build an end-to-end IoT solution using commercial grade, open source products? This is the question we (Patrick Steiner, Maggie Hu and I) wanted to address with our session at the Red Hat Summit, Boston. The end-to-end solution is based on three-tier Enterprise IoT Architecture, which integrates IoT data with existing business processes and the human element.

How to Build an Intelligent IoT Gateway in 7 Easy Steps

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.

How To Setup Fuse Tooling For JBoss Developer Studio 10

How To Setup Fuse Tooling For JBoss Developer Studio 10

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:

  1. JBoss Fuse Development
  2. JBoss Business Process and Rules Development
  3. JBoss Data Virtualization Development
  4. 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.

Installation

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.

Other options

In the past we have outlined the use of JBoss BPM and rules tooling for other versions of JBDS:

Fuse and A-MQ version 6.3 GA are released!

Fuse and A-MQ 6.3 GA have just gone out! And, maybe, you would think, “this is just a minor version release” — “why should I care?”

Hold your thoughts, because there are quite a few improvements and also many new features in this release.

Besides bug fixes, and improving the stability of Fuse Fabric, there are two major changes in this version update:

  • New Tooling in JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) 9.1 GA.
  • Newer Apache Camel version – Camel v2.17.

I was personally impressed by the work put in to make developing Camel applications much simpler. First is the installation of tooling itself — now it has an all-in-one installer, so you don’t need to worry about which plugins you need to check.

See the videos below to check out the new “Getting Started” experience of Fuse 6.3.

Persistence vs. Durability in Messaging. Do you know the difference?

Messaging is a critical aspect of integrating systems, and while there are many different messaging platforms and infrastructures, a common request is for “zero loss of messages.”  From there, the terms “Persistence” and “Durability” often get thrown around, but what do those two things really mean?

A-MQ 7 Alpha is ready!

I am sure this is the moment we have all been waiting for a long time, JBoss A-MQ 7 is finally out and is currently in Alpha. A-MQ is a fast and flexible messaging platform that reliably delivers information and easily integrates the various components in your application environments.

A-MQ 7 consists of several new components and features, it is base on Project Apache ActiveMQ Artemis. The code base was donated by HornetQ. Having high performance journal base on NIO implementation, allows A-MQ 7 to become a fast , high performance and reliable messaging platform.  Rather than relying other persistence storage it is very highly optimized for general message use cases. The message broker as always allows you to balance load across a cluster of brokers, the balancing of the message not only distributed the incoming message to brokers sequentially but also takes into the account of the number of consumers and selectors in the broker so the performance can achieved even distribution of the load.
