JBoss Fuse/A-MQ - Playing with Insight/Elastic Search Tech Preview of Fuse

This week in Berlin, I met awesome Red Hat SA Roel Hodzelmans , who showed me the "fun stuff" that you can play with in JBoss Fuse, although this is still a Tech Preview function, I think would be great for people to take play with this and give as much testing as possible.

Kibana is an open source browser based analytics and search dashboard for ElasticSearch.

Steps to do an Insight/Elastic Search demo of Fuse, make sure the environment has enough disk space.

1) In the root container add the Kibana profile - this is the management console for Elastic Search.


It will add a new tab next to Runtime, Wiki, Dashboard, Health and Insight. The preparation takes a couple of minutes, depends on your resource.



2) Add the insight core profile to all containers where you want to capture the logging from




3) Create a new profile or profile version to which you want to add insight in the camel parts to,



then add insight-camel feature to the features of the profile




4) Migrate a container to the new version or create a target container with the new version and add the newly created profile to the container in question



Once you have it install and your application running, you could see 5 different views:

Logs- where you get insight in the log statements


Metric, this should be have data on your JVM etc, but there are still work to be done here


Camel Events shows all Camel exchanges, note the Exchange ID is also posted here

Camel shows a text box into which you can put an Exchange ID. When succesfull (no whitepaces, wildcards or partial strings!) it will draw a sequence diagram detailing the time spend at all components. If your route had good ID's for the endpoints, it will display those names else you get generated id's, making it hard to read

ESHead shows you the elastic search component itself, in which the data is stored and you can
    a) see the cluster health,
    b) make your own queries...etc

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

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

jboss-devstudio-9.0.0.GA-installer-eap.jar
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 - Getting Started with Fuse Integration Service 2.0 Tech preview

I just realized that I did not do a getting started for Fuse Integration Service 2.0 Tech preview before I did the pipeline demo, thanks for those of you who reminded me! :)

To get started with FIS 2.0, for people who has just getting to know the technology, here is how I interpret it. Basically, it's divide into two aspect,

1. Integration development, FIS uses Apache Camel as the core technology that creates, orchestrate, compose microservices into a super lightweight thin integration layer, and become the API provider and service orchestrator through exposing RESTful or messaging service endpoints. And you can choose to either package and run it with Spring-Boot or Karaf.


2. Application Deployment and Management, FIS takes advantages of OpenShift platform, and allows you to separately deploy the micro-integration service among distributed environment, at the same time takes care of the failover, high availability, load balancing and service lookup problem for you.


So, now we know …
