JBoss Fuse - Fuse workshop 101 - Part Five

So far we have focused on the routing capability of Fuse, which is the wire and plug that integrate different systems together.And for now let's just put Camel aside for a second and take a look at the container our little Fuse project can run on. And some of the tools that might help you while developing.

With JBoss Fuse, you have a number of containers.

  • Standalone Camel process
  • Apache Karaf container
  • JBoss Enterprise Application Server (WildFly)

We have been running it as a single Camel process. In this workshop I want to take a look at the the OSGi container inside JBoss Fuse, which comes from the community project Apache Karaf.

OSGI break the application into multiple modules so it is easier to manage the dependency between each modules, and this nature allows it to become very lightweight without the need to load unused modules. You can make dependency base on different version. Also OSGi helps you set boundaries between modules, so you can hide packages that you don'r want to export.


Within this lightweight container, there will be something already installed for you, for example, the log module actually includes various kind of logging libraries, so you application can use without problem. Deployer that scan for new applications, and provisioning of your application via maven, files, or features... etc. It also has exposed JMX for administration and monitoring. A-MQ is bult-in in the base container, but you have a choice of removing it if needed later.


Speaking of deployment, the unit of deployment is called "Bundle", but it is actually a "jar" file. There are several way you can deploy it onto the container, either place your bundle inside the "deploy" folder(JBoss Fuse installation folder) or you can install it by using a install command and specify the maven detail to load it into the container.

    osgi:install -s mvn:org.apache.camel/camel-core/1.5.0

And after successful installation, your bundle will become a service in side this container, and this service will be visible to other service inside, and uses them if needed.

The console for the container is really powerful, here you can see the list of thing you can see via the console.


Can I use the container in my local environment for development? Yes, through the use of JBoss Developer Studio, it is very easy to debug through it's tooling. Go the the Fuse integration perspective, it will automatically detect JBoss Fuse, and here you could simple run your code on the by container by dragging the project to the bundle folder in JBoss Fuse. And see the execution result.



This is the slide for workshop 5.


Our 5th Camel Ride is all about the Karaf container, after this lab, you should be able to run your camel application on top of it!



Here are the lab instructions.



Here are the other parts of the workshops!

Workshop part 1 - Camel basic and components
Workshop part 2 - Data Transformation 
Workshop part 3 - Enterprise Integration Pattern
Workshop part 4 - Bean Registry
Workshop part 5 - OSGi Container
Workshop part 6 - Fuse Fabric 

Comments

After putting the file into myxml folder, my JBoss console keeps showing the info printed about the calculated price, it's looping and not deleting the file after processing it the first time. Any ideas?

It means something is wrong during the next step, so it rolls back to the previous action, which is the putting the file back to the folder. Need more detail to see what's wrong.

JBoss EAP 6 - 效能調校 (一) DataSource 的 Connection Pool

效能沒有什麼Best Practice, 反正能調整的就那些。 通常,一個程式的效能大概有70-80% 都跟程式怎麼寫的其實比較有關係。

最近我最疼愛的小貓Puji 因為膀胱結石開刀的時候過世了,心情很差請原諒我的口氣沒有很好,也沒有心情寫部落格。

Puji R.I.P.

=======================正文=======================

這個題目很多人叫我寫,可是這題目好大,這分明就是整死我咩~
所以我會分幾段慢慢寫。

JBoss 的 SubsystemDatasource WebWeb Service EJB Hibernate JMSJCAJVM 調校OS (作業系統)

先來看一下 DataSource Subsystem, DataSource 的部分主要是針對Connection Pool 做調校。

通常,程式都會需要跟資料庫界接,電腦在本機,尤其是在記憶體的運算很快,但是一旦要外部的資源連接,就是會非常的耗資源。所以現在的應用程式伺服器都會有個Pool 放一些先連接好的 資料庫connection,當程式有需要的時候就可以馬上提供,而不用花那些多餘的資源去連接資料庫。

這就是為什麼要針對Connection Pool 去做調校。

以下會討論到的參數,都是跟效能比較有關係,Datasource 還有很多參數,像是檢核connection 是否正確的,我都不會提到。如果你追求的是非常快速的效能,那我建議你一個檢核都不要加。當然,這樣就會為伺服器上面執行的程式帶來風險。這就是你要在效能與正確,安全性上面的取捨了。 (套句我朋友說的話,不可能又要馬兒好,又要馬兒不吃草的..)

最重要的調校參數就是 Connection 的 Pool 數量。(也就是那個Pool 裡面要放幾條的connection.) 這個參數是每一個應用程式都不一樣的。

min-pool-size 

Connection Pool 最少會存留的connection 數量

max-pool-size 

Connection Pool 最多可以開啓的 connection 數量

prefill

事先將connection pool 裡面建立好min-pool-size 的connection.

我的建議是觀察一下平常程式要用到的量設定為 min-pool-size 。

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.

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 …
