Red Hat JBoss A-MQ - A-MQ in Internet of Things, Sensor transmitting vital signal to Biomedical dashboard via AMQP

I was amazed by the increasing number of people mentioning "Internet of Things" in the recent conversations, if you already know what IoT is, please skip this part and go straight to my demo. :)

From Wiki,

"The term Internet of Things was proposed by Kevin Ashton in 1999,... it originally refers to uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure. ...... Today however, the term Internet of Things is used to denote advanced connectivity of devices, systems and services that goes beyond the traditional machine-to-machine (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains and applications."

From my understanding, is that more and more light weight, hand carry device or smart appliance are produce and manufactured. All these device works great on it's own, such as mobile phone,  TVs, GPS or even sphygmomanometers. But they work even better with the internet, by transmitting their live data, we were able to get better and quicker response and reaction. But the number of device out there is much greater then the current machines we are used to today. How do we cope with the vast amount of data floating in and make sure the data was delivered reliably?

The nature of messaging technology that allows information to deliver safely and reliably to the endpoint, has made it become the perfect medium to be the front line of IoT.

Under different circumstance, different ways and format to transmit information are used. So we can achieve better and more efficient performances.

STOMP (Streaming Text Oriented Messaging Protocol)
Purely text base protocol. And since it's in text format, almost every broker supports it. But being the whole text format,I wouldn't count on it's performance.

MQTT (MQ Telemetry Transport)
The most "light weight " Protoco out of all there. It is design for remote client with limited bandwidth to  deliver messages. MQTT has small code footprint. It's goal is simply deliver messages to the broker, the broker is then responsible to pass on the messages to other endpoints.

AMQP (Advanced Message Queuing Protocol)
Open standard application layer protocol, It mandates the behavior of the messaging provider and client to the extent that implementations from different vendors are truly interoperable. WIth A-MQ, you can always use this protocol by using JMS API with Apache QPid Project.

This demo showcase how the sensor transmit Body vital sign by sending signals via AMQP to A-MQ queue. And the information is catch by the consumer in the Dashboard (again with AMQP) then display the data on the web dashboard.

This video shows you how to install and run the demo:

oday is the year of internet of things, this is the most commonly used today, everything from smartphone, cars, home. 2015 is a year of connected devices, home automation, connected cars. the big question for this right now is the security issues. Since cyber crime is always around the corner. Thank you for this very interesting info of yours. Hope you have time reading our blog.

Fuse Integration Service - Setup JBDS and create first quickstart application

Before we go and start creating our first application, I want to show you how to setup your JBoss Developer Studio, create a small application from the quickstart example and then running it on Fuse Integration Service.

I am using JBoss Developer Studio version 9, you can find it here.
After download the

double-click it, and start installing with default values.

After successful installation, we will need install the plugins for Fuse, on JBoss Central view, select software update, select enable early access.

And select JBoss Fuse Development for the plugin,

Click on install, and we are all set to go!

First thing first, we want to create a Fuse project to deploy on the base of Fuse Integration Service, which is OpenShift. If you have not installed it, please go back to my previous post for instructions. So on your JBDS, right click and start creating the project. Select new, maven project, if you have installed the plugin correctly, you should …

Red Hat JBoss Fuse/A-MQ - Fuse and A-MQ Version 6.3 GA is released!

Fuse and A-MQ 6.3 GA has just went out. Maybe, you would think this is just only a minor version release why should I care? Hold your thoughts on that! Because they have done a lot of improvements and also added many new features into this release.

Besides various bug fixes and making sure Fuse Fabric is much more stable. There are two major change in this version update:

New Tooling in JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) 9.1 GA. Newer Apache Camel version – Camel v2.17. I was really impressed by the work put in to make developing Camel application much simpler. First is the installation of tooling itself. Now it has a all-in-one installer so you don't need to worry about which plugins you need to check. See the videos below to see the new "Getting Started" of Fuse 6.3.

And If you notice from the above video, the presentation of camel route in JBDS has also updated. It fixed some of the miss representation of logic and making it easier to read.

Old Camel Route
New Camel Route

RHTE - Supercharge your integration services

Red Hat Tech Exchange has taken place in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh city two weeks ago, it is a great event held by Red Hat in Asia Pacific Region. It is open to all Red Hat partners who are interested in learning what Red Hat is doing recently, see what the trend of the open source world, basically it is a great event to share your knowledge and experience, to meet other enthusiastic people.

I am very fortunate to talk in this great event, to talk about the things I have been working on and even discuss it with many. Also got lots of great ideas too. So here are the slide.

My first talk was with Thomas Qvarnström about how to handle large size data in JBoss Fuse and how JBoss Data Grid can help in the situation.

Here is the agenda of the talk, we will be talk about this in the up coming webinar on 24th Sept.

Integration often involves storing, retrieving, and transforming data. Using a traditional database in your integration is likely to becomes a bottleneck that is expensive and hard to …
