Integration Project- Micro Services Migration Story with JBoss BPM Travel Agency - Part Four

Part Four- Persistence with JPA

In the post, I am going to show you how to create the fuse side travel agency demo from scratch. We are going to take a look at how create the Flight/Hotel booking and cancellation service. If you would like to know more about the micro service architecture this demo is trying to showcase, please go to part 2 of the series
for more information. Due to the fact that Flight and Hotel booking are identical, I will be focusing on the Hotel side. What this service does, is it simply books the hotel when receives a an ID when the booking is done, it'll return a 26 character BookingID as key. This key is then used if the user wants to cancel the booking. As for cancellation, it'll return the cost to cancel it, if the key provided is not found, it'll return 0, as nothing can be cancelled using the key provided.

All request to backend services in this demo are all async, so there are different message queue in the broker connecting to the promotion, booking and cancellation services. For booking service we are going to create an JPA entity contains the booking ID we have received from the process then store the entity to it's table. And in cancellation, it first check if the the booking id exists in the table, if yes, it'll calculate the fee and return it. If nothing found, then a constant number "zero" will return.

We need to first configure the two endpoints from message broker and database.
Like in normal JPA application, first we will need to identify our entities, in this case, we have two, booking entity and cancel booking entity.
package org.blogdemo.travelagency.hotelbookingservice;

import static javax.persistence.LockModeType.PESSIMISTIC_WRITE;

import java.util.Date;

import javax.persistence.Column;
import javax.persistence.Entity;
import javax.persistence.Id;
import javax.persistence.NamedQuery;
import javax.persistence.Table;

@NamedQuery(name = "queryHotelBookingById", query = "select hotelbooking from Booking hotelbooking where hotelbooking.bookingid=:bookingid " , lockMode = PESSIMISTIC_WRITE)
@Table(name = "hotelbooking")
public class Booking { 
 @Column(name = "bookingid")
 String bookingid;
 @Column(name = "recieveDate")
 Date recieveDate;

 public String getBookingid() {
  return bookingid;

 public void setBookingid(String bookingid) {
  this.bookingid = bookingid;

 public Date getRecieveDate() {
  return recieveDate;

 public void setRecieveDate(Date recieveDate) {
  this.recieveDate = recieveDate;


package org.blogdemo.travelagency.hotelbookingservice;
import java.util.Date;
import javax.persistence.*;
@Table(name = "cancelhotelbooking")
public class CancelBooking {
 @Column(name = "bookingid")
 String bookingid;
 @Column(name = "recieveDate")
 Date recieveDate;

 public String getBookingid() { bookingid;
 public void setBookingid(String bookingid) {
  this.bookingid = bookingid;
 public Date getRecieveDate() { recieveDate;}
 public void setRecieveDate(Date recieveDate) {
  this.recieveDate = recieveDate;

And then we need to set the datasource and bean information. Under resource/META-INF create a xml file called persistence.xml. This file contains the database setting, login authentication, and depend on the JPA library you use, there are minor difference when you want to configure the behavior of how it should sync with database. I am using OpenJPA this time.


1. Meesage broker location and authentication


2. Entity and Transaction managers, and also the datasource setting like normal JPA applications     CAUTION,   
(In Fuse, it's best to use hibernate and Aries JTA.  I will migrate this project in Fuse 6.2)





For booking, because we need to insert a new entity, therefore create a service to handle the creation of the entity.And inside booking service it also handles all the necessary business logic such as generate random booking id and calculating the cancelation fee. Then we need to register the service bean And create the route to book hotel
Create route to cancel booking

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.



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。


Connection Pool 最少會存留的connection 數量


Connection Pool 最多可以開啓的 connection 數量


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.

Old Camel Route

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 …
